If you feed distillers dried grain with solubles in your pork operation, check out this Web site for the latest information.

The University of Illinois has developed a Web site about DDGS in swine diets. The site features several sections, including current research results, a list of Midwest distillers’ grain sources and contacts for current prices and byproduct availability.

The site also includes:

  • Training presentations.
  • A resource library that includes material from a variety of industry and university sources.
  • Breakeven feed prices for distillers’ grains, including a Web-based calculator for individual results.
  • Weekly distillers’ grain price updates, as well as updates for other byproduct feeds.
  • Information on storage and handling wet distillers’ grains in bags.
