University of Nebraska-Lincoln specialists have developed a spreadsheet to help feedlot managers calculate costs and benefits of feeding ethanol co-products in their own operations, said Terry Klopfenstein, UNL professor of animal science.
Klopfenstein said that feedlots save a $40 per ton processing fee when they use wet distillers grains. That also reduces the fossil fuels needed to produce them. Cattle like the wet product better and the feed value is probably higher, he added.
