I was wondering if you have any resources on using brewers grain while grazing their cattle. A friend of mine is increasing his brewery drastically and will have a few tons of brewers grain a week to dispose of. We currently feed it to our goats, chickens and rabbits. With 65 acres of alfalfa I can turn into pasture I’m trying to find info on how much brewers grain to feed and how long it takes to finish in order to create a business plan.

Not aware of any written resources on your inquiry. Since this is a feed ration question it would be best to have a direct conversation to see which nutritionist would be most adapt to address your local operation. Please contact the Ed Lentz at the Hancock County Extension office at 419/422-3851 to connect you with the proper livestock nutritionist.
