Ethanol Co-Product Research

A checkoff-funded summit titled “Ethanol Co-Products – Beef Product Implications” was held in November 2006 with researchers from around the country to develop a summary of existing research and establish future research needs. In response to these identified needs, The Beef Checkoff funded a total of six research projects to determine the impact of feeding high levels of ethanol coproducts (i.e., distiller’s grains) on beef end-product quality and safety. Download the Executive Summary below to review a summary of the six projects.
