The corn dry-milling industry that produces grits, meals, and flours for human consumption is very different from the dry-milling industry that produces ethanol. In dry-milling to produce grits, meals, and flours, the corn grain is ground and separated into component parts by aspiration, screening, etc. The by-product of this process is mostly hominy feed that contains over 50% starch, 11 12% protein, and 25 26% fiber. For beef-cattle finishing diets, 40% of diet dry matter seems to be a practical upper limit. Up to that level, the hominy has an energy value of 87% that of corn grain. Hominy is widely used as an ingredient in dairy-cattle diets.
