A load of distillers grains is unloaded when I got home from work this afternoon. this is an excellent energy and protein source for the cows when they need supplemented when the grass isn’t ready for turnout. And as a bonus the cows love the taste!

About Husker Cowgirl

I am a ranchers wife, regional sales manager for Turnkey Computer Systems feedyard accounting software and an avid Husker fan. I am passionate about agriculture and especially beef cattle. My husband and I do things on our ranch the old fashioned way - using horses. I also enjoy taking my horses to town and competing with them at local, state and national events on the weekends.

    and as a bigger bonus, its another way to use ALL of what our corn produces. Just because it goes to an Ethanol plant doesn’t mean that its wasted after they are done with it. Once they are done, we get it back for feed! More people need to be informed of this as well…

    • Very good thoughts!!! Thanks for sharing for our readers : ). I sometimes forget that not only does it help the cattle, but also helps corn grown in our state stay because it can be marketed through the ethanonl plants. Happy Easter!
