The South Dakota ethanol industry is rapidly expanding. As a direct result of this expansion it is expected that in excess of 500,000 tons of corn co-products will be available to livestock enterprises annually as a feed source. Processing methods are, in general terms, similar among dry milling ethanol plants. However, newer technology and small deviations of methods can alter the nutritive value of the co-products. Subsequently, diet formulations using general nutritive values may be inaccurate and cause production inefficiencies. The objective of this research project was to characterize the composition and nutritive value of corn co-products produced from several dry milling ethanol plants in the upper Midwest.
