Dr. Jerry Shurson recently returned from a week-long trip to Brazil. During this trip he visited Escola Superior De Agricultura Luiz De Queiroz (ESALQ), or the “School of Agriculture” at the University of Sao Paulo. Dr. Shurson discussed research collaborations taking place with poultry nutritionist Professor Jose Menten and swine nutritionist Professor Urbano Ruiz. The research involves the nutritional evaluation of new corn co-products that will be produced for poultry and swine by a new FS Bioenergia ethanol plant located in Mato Grosso (Lucas do Rio Verde).
