Abstract

The rapid growth of the ethanol industry in the upper Midwest is well documented. This growth affects the Iowa cattle industry on several levels. Increased demand for corn puts pressure on feed and pasture costs and availability. However, increased production of dried distillers grains with solubles(DDGS) may provide an economical supplement to provide nutrients and stretch pasture supplies. DDGS have many benefits for forage based beef production. Relatively high levels of undegraded protein, can be needed early in the grazing season.
