NCGA Program Recognizes the Importance of the Livestock Industry

While topics such as ethanol and biotech are grabbing the headlines, sometimes other important topics can be taken for granted. Livestock is one of those topics.

What does livestock have to do with corn? Plenty. The livestock industry (beef, pork, poultry and dairy) is the largest user of corn, consuming 4.4 billion bushels per year. Sixty percent of the corn grown in the U.S. is consumed as feed by livestock, while another 20 percent is used by industry for ruminant rations.

To meet the needs of corn growers' number one customer, the National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) has developed a livestock program designed to act as a resource to NCGA staff and members. NCGA Livestock Information and Programs Manager Tracy Snider pointed out how this program provides assistance with a variety livestock issues.

"We work on the marketing of co-products," said Snider, "as well as act as a liaison to the livestock industry. We also monitor some of the key issues facing the livestock industry."

She said the ability to sell these products profitably could indicate the potential financial success of certain industrial processes.

With the majority of domestically used corn being fed to livestock, it is of the utmost importance to work with that industry to meet its needs," said Snider.

"Our best potential customer is our best current customer and that's the livestock industry," she added. "By coordinating efforts with corn growers, the future of value-added corn and its use is more secure and supply can better fit the demand."
