1/3 of the Corn that goes for Ethanol becomes dried distiller's grain. I don't know the ratio it can be mixed with corn but it's most of the nutrients minus the starch.

I get 53% goes to feed if all DDG goes to feed. 40% goes to Ethanol(1/3 becomes DDG), 40% is feed, and then 10% is sweet corn. Where did you get 80%?
