after World War II to showcase prize beef animals raised on distillers wet grains. Prize money
was sizable, even by today’s standards. Iowa State College research in 1936-37 showed a
$7.92 per head advantage to distillers grain fed cattle compared to soybean meal fed cattle,
including the hogs that followed the cattle (Distillers Feed Research Council, 1951).
