Purdue Agriculture Distillers Grains Research Team

Research is taking place throughout multiple departments within the College of Agriculture at Purdue University to evaluate the integration of co-products from corn ethanol production into livestock feeding. The stages within the full cycle of utilizing these co-products includes:

  • Processing, Storage, and Handling;
  • Nutrient Digestibility;
  • Animal Performance;
  • Carcass Quality;
  • Economic Value as a Feed Ingredient;
  • Impacts of Ethanol Co-products on Manure Composition and Nutrient Management;
  • Economic Assessment of Diets using Co-products; and
  • Ethanol Plant Proximity near Livestock Production affects on Supply and Demand.
