Iowa State University has released the first in a series of fact sheets on corn co-products from the ethanol-making process.
John Mabry, Iowa Pork Industry Center (IPIC) director, says the new fact sheet will provide some much-desired information.
“Distiller’s Dried Grains with Solubles (DDGS) is the first in a planned series called ‘Feeding Bioenergy Co-products to Swine,’” he says. “The series will be available in pdf form on the IPIC Web site only, starting with this DDGS fact sheet numbered IPIC 11a.”
The publication includes current ethanol production facts and figures, DDGS composition, quality, and variability and nutrient availability. It also provides strategies for producers considering the use of DDGS in swine diets.
Animal science professor Mark Honeyman and research assistant Pete Lammers prepared the fact sheet and are developing additional topics for publication in the series.
