The Gothenburg TImes
LINCOLN—Roughly half of the cattle and hog operations in a 12-state region either fed ethanol co-products or considered feeding them to their livestock last year, according to a report published Friday by USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) with the support and funding of the Nebraska Corn Board.
Among dairy operations, 38% indicated that they fed co-products during 2006 and another 22% considered doing so. Among cattle on feed operations, 36% fed co-products and 34% more considered it. Among beef cattle operations, 13% reported that they fed co-products and 30% considered it. For hog operations, 12% fed co-products and 35% considered it.
