Ethanol Co-product Publication Update

Cindy Zimmerman

A publication that provides information for users of the ethanol co-product distillers dried grains (DDGS) has been updated.

A new edition of “Feeding Corn Milling Co-Products to Feedlot Cattle,” a popular publication that provides feedlot operators, animal nutritionists and others with the latest research and sound recommendations on feeding corn co-products like distillers grains to cattle, is now available from the Nebraska Corn Board and University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

This is the third edition of the publication and offers a significant update since it was last published in 2007.

“The availability and use of corn co-products like distillers grains, which are produced by ethanol plants, has increased significantly since 2007. At the same time, we’ve expanded our knowledge and understanding when it comes to recommendations that are backed by quality research,” said Kelly Brunkhorst, director of research for the Nebraska Corn Board.

“Feeding Corn Milling Co-Products to Feedlot Cattle” is a 36-page printed publication that is available free by request to the Nebraska Corn Board. Electronic copies are also available for download at under the publications section, or at the university’s website.
