Are you thinking about purchasing distiller’s grain at a lower price in the off-season? In an era of high corn prices and rising input costs, livestock producers are learning new methods of reducing waste in their feed rations, namely when it concerns the use of costly corn, hay and forage.
    K-State Research and Extension Hodgeman County will offer a free informational meeting to the public  with a distiller’s grain storage and livestock update at 2 p.m. Tuesday at the 4-H Building in Jetmore. 
    Speakers Justin Waggoner, Ph.D, SW Area Extension beef specialist; Stan O’Neill, Pfizer representative; and DeWayne Craghead, county Extension agent, will discuss livestock issues and solutions available to producers when purchasing distiller’s grain at a lower price in the off-season.
    Sponsoring the event are the Extension Councils of Hodgeman, Ford, Gray, Edwards and Pawnee counties.
