Don’t miss your chance to actively promote your product in the third-largest market for U.S. DDGS.
On June 9, the U.S. Grains Council, in cooperation Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, will host a one-day seminar in
Lethbridge, Alberta, promoting U.S. DDGS utilization in western Canadian feedlots. The day will include an intensive DDGS technical session, an industry meeting followed by a networking reception.
This conference provides a prime venue for U.S. DDGS producers and suppliers to meet some of the top Canadian importers and largest end-users of U.S. DDGS.
With the use of distiller’s dried grains with solubles (DDGS) on the rise in Canada, the demand for updated information on the product’s nutritional value is great.
Last week, the U.S. Grains Council sponsored a workshop conducted by Gowans Feed Consulting, where 18 pork producers gathered in Manitoba to learn about DDGS, the economics behind the product and the sourcing and management of the feed ingredient in pig diets.
As distiller’s dried grains with solubles (DDGS) continue a steady flow into Canada, a U.S. Grains Council delegation visited trans-loading facilities and a research feedlot servicing Alberta end-users. The team was especially interested in observing the industry’s ability to handle and store DDGS coming into Canada from the United States.
As North America increased the production of fuel from renewable sources, ethanol production surged, simultaneously producing considerable volumes of the co-product distiller’s dried grains with solubles (DDGS). The U.S. Grains Council believes DDGS has the potential to produce finished cattle with improved carcass quality, due to its bulk density and oil content.
