Summary and Implications
A very sudden and rapid paradigm shift has been taking place in the last 3-4 years. The motor fuel/additive ethanol industry had been building infrastructure slowly for about 30 years but took off much more rapidly as oil prices rose following 2001 and federal tax policy changes in 2003. This paper will look at some of the impacts this change has had on dairy animal agriculture.
