Grains For Africa specialises in the procurement and supply of the following over-the counter products and by-products

Molasses is a thick, dark and carbohydrate rich by-product of the sugar refining process which is typically used as an energy source as well as a binding agent in a variety of feed rations.


The by-product of the extraction of soybean oil. A high protein meal that holds the highest feeding value compared to all the other protein sources and acts as the standard to which all other protein sources are compared.

Cotton seeds are typically by-products of the production of cotton fibre. Cotton seeds can be ‘fuzzy’ or ‘naked’ depending on the amount of lint left covering the seed after lint is harvested. Cotton seeds are typically fed to livestock as a protein and fat source.

A protein rich residue leftover after cotton seeds are pressed for their oil. Mixed in a ruminant ration as a protein source.

Used as animal feed and generally cultivated for hay production. Dehydrated lucerne can also be used to produce meal or pellets, with standardised protein content.

A cereal grain used both for human consumption as well as a feed grain in beef cattle and hog feed rations. Typically used for a plethora of products in the human consumption category and mainly used as a carbohydrate source in cattle, poultry, and hog feed rations.

A by-product of the extraction of sunflower oil, generally considered as the fourth most important oilcake after soya, canola and cotton oilcakes and use as a protein source in cattle, poultry and hog feed rations.

Wheat bran is a by-product of the wheat milling process and is a very palatable filler with fair protein content often used in cattle, hog and poultry feed rations.

A by-product of the extraction of oil from soybean seeds. Hulls are fibrous materials with no place in human food, but are very valuable for ruminants and are milled down and sometimes pelletised for use as roughage in various feed rations.
