4. NC-213 scientists found that swine diets can utilize more biofuels coproducts than are normally included in rations, in tradeoff with corn grain. More inclusion of biofuel coproducts will alleviate some of the competition for corn between processing and feeding, and will reduce the transportation needs for hard-to-handle coproducts. Less conflict between feed and fuel needs will allow both to grow at rates needed to supply world food needs and domestic fuel demands.
Recognizing excellence in research
Since 1999, NC-213 has recognized individuals or teams that have made superior contributions to science and/or education related to cereals and oilseeds by awarding them The Andersons Cereals and Oilseeds Award of Excellence. Recipients of the award can be associated with a university, private industry, or a state or federal agency. The Andersons Cereals and Oilseeds Award of Excellence winner is announced during the annual meeting of Multistate Project NC-213,
“Marketing and Delivery of Quality Grains and BioProcess Coproducts.”
NC-213 has and will continue to have a significant impact on improving the efficiency of the U.S. grain industry and capturing value along the cereals, oilseeds and co-product supply chains.
