The U.S. Grains Council is setting up demonstration trials in targeted countries to educate livestock producers about the nutritional and economic benefits of using ethanol co-products like corn gluten feed (CGF) and distillers dried grains with solubles (DDGS)
“Conducting the trials locally gives local farmers a chance to see DDGS and CGF use firsthand in a trial that utilizes their own climatic conditions. It provides them a reliable source of data they can be more confident in,” said Lori Feltis, USGC Rest of the World Advisory Team member, who is currently in Egypt to assess the use of U.S. DDGS and CGF.
In April, the Council initiated a demo-trial in Egypt where local animal production operations formulated DDGS and CGF inclusion ratios in their feed rations. This week, USGC consultants, staff and Feltis traveled to Egypt to analyze the ongoing progress of the trials.
