Use Ethanol Co-products in Swine and Beef Diets

Compiled by staff

A program, "Feeding Ethanol Co-products to Beef and DDGS to Swine," will be held in Cherokee at Western Iowa Tech on Dec. 17 from 1 to 4 p.m. It features concurrent sessions for pork and beef producers on management and cost related to adding distillers dried grains with solubles (DDGS) to livestock diets.

One of the program coordinators, Iowa State University extension swine field specialist Dave Stender, says recent research shows swine producers can capture some benefits by feeding DDGS.

"DDGS can be a cost-reducing alternative to feeding corn, can improve finishing health and can reduce the phosphorus concentration in manure. It can do this in an environmentally friendly way," says Stender. "If the product saves money, improves health and is good for the environment, why not feed it to swine?"

The swine session will feature University of Minnesota swine nutrition specialist Jerry Shurson, ISU nutrient management specialist Wendy Powers, South Dakota State University extension feedlot specialist Kent Tjardes, and Stender.

Feeding DDGS can reduce phosphorus in manure

Shurson will talk about the feeding value of "New Generation" DDGS for swine and will emphasize the critical issues of feeding management and nutritional formulation. Shurson's research shows some benefit in preventing ileitis by reducing stomach lesions when feeding DDGS. Powers will outline the changes in nutrient content of manure when using DDGS in swine diets. Phosphorus levels in manure can be reduced when feeding DDGS.

Tjardes will lead a discussion on storing DDGS, including the best methods. Stender will present information on factors in pricing DDGS and a cost analysis of DDGS in swine diets.

The beef concurrent session will feature ISU distinguished animal science professor Allen Trenkle, ISU extension feedlot specialist Dan Loy, ISU extension beef field specialist Beth Doran, and Tjardes and Powers.

Cost of the program is $10 per person for those preregistered by Dec. 13. Cost for walk-in registration is $15. To preregister, send your name, address, phone number and a check payable to Cherokee County Extension, to Cherokee County Extension, 209 Centennial Dr., Suite A, Cherokee, IA 51012. The program is sponsored by Iowa Pork Industry Center, ISU Extension, Iowa Beef Center, and Iowa Pork Producers Association.
