Dr. Jerry Shurson Travels to Brazil

Dr. Jerry Shurson traveled to Brazil in February to meet with animal nutrition researchers at the Federal University of Sao Paulo (ESALQ) in Piracaba, and the Federal University of Vicosa to discuss ongoing and future collaborative research studies to evaluate the nutritional value of new high protein and high fiber corn co-products for swine and poultry. These co-products are being produced by a new corn ethanol plant (FS Bioenergia, Lucas do Rio Verde) in the state of Mato Grosso. He also visited a large swine operation and beef feedlot that are using these co-products in their feeding programs.
