Use of Corn and Residues in the Future for Beef Cattle
The University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension Midyear Husker Beef Nutrition Conference on the use of corn residues was held on June 20, 2012 at the Agricultural Research and Development Center near Mead, NE. The conference focused on some new research on distillers grains, utilization of corn residue and implications of removing corn residue, and impact of feeding greater amounts of forage. New research on alkaline treatment of corn stover with calcium oxide and use in feedlot cattle was also presented.
Finally, the day ended with some information on how to treat corn stover with calcium oxide commercially using some patent-pending processes developed by ADM, and Performance Plus.
Each topic was recorded except one. These videos, plus video on the treatment process being done commercially by Performance Plus, is available below. In addition, PDF files of slide sets that were shared with participants are available below. NOTE: PDF files open in a new tab/window.
Much of this information is not available yet in Nebraska Beef Reports but will be available in the 2013 Nebraska Beef Report available in December, 2012. For more information or questions, you can contact Galen Erickson (402-472-6402 or email@example.com).
Support and sponsorship was provided by ADM and Monsanto to make the conference materials available for free to all participates and online.
