US developed spreadsheet aids swine producers
The University of Illinois Department of Animal Sciences has developed an
excel spreadsheet that helps swine producers calculate the value of including
distillers dried grains with solubles in their feeding program.
Hans Stein, University of Illinois Extension swine specialist,
together with post-doctoral student, Beob Kim developed the excel spreadsheet to
calculate the value of including DDGS in diets fed to swine. "Producers can use
their own costs for corn, soybean meal, DDGS, and other ingredients and then
calculate how much their diets will cost without and with DDGS" Stein announced.
The spreadsheet can be found at the Illinois Pork Producers Association
