With feed commodity prices at unprecedented levels in recent years, dairy producers and their nutritionists naturally are interested in alternative feedstuffs to improve income over feed costs. Based on current values for corn ($5.53/bu.) and soybean meal ($485.00/ton), the equivalent feed value for the grocery blend at 80 percent moisture would be $46.50/ton. A discounted price is set depending on volume, transportation costs and other factors.
“For dairies, we see tremendous potential to provide an economical, highly consistent and palatable product that is available year-around,” says Hickman. “It’s a win for the environment, and it utilizes valuable nutrients that would otherwise be wasted.”
