Ethanol process provides new feed
By Brandon Bennett, Black Hills Pioneer
VALE – The expansion of the ethanol industry is providing increased availability of distiller grain products for livestock feed, and local farmers and ranchers are availing themselves of the commodity to feed their cattle and sheep.
Leber Ag Service of Vale handles the distiller grain and has about 60 customers. Dave Leber commented that if ethanol producers are going to tie up corn for fuel, they need to give something back that would work for livestock. And he thinks they may have found the solution.
