On June 29, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) will release a report on livestock producers' use of ethanol co-products to feed cattle and hogs. The report, entitled Ethanol Co-Products Used for Livestock Feed, will highlight results of a survey conducted by NASS with the support of the Nebraska Corn Board. NASS contacted approximately 9,400 livestock operations in 12 states to determine whether they used ethanol co-products - including distillers grains and corn gluten feed - in their feed rations in 2006. NASS collected information regarding the volume and type of co-products fed, how the co-products were procured and used, and what concerns and barriers may have prevented operations from feeding co-products.
NASS will release Ethanol Co-Products Used for Livestock Feed on Friday, June 29, at 3 p.m. EDT. Like all NASS reports, it will be available online at www.nass.usda.gov.
