Bringing healthy returns from the feed market
Feed markets play a huge role in a profitable corn crop. What's the benefit? The Indiana Corn Marketing Council (ICMC) enhances Indiana’s corn feed markets and increases the value by listening and answering the needs of both feed customers and farmers.
Livestock farms — pigs, poultry, beef and dairy cows — are major customers for the state’s corn. And, these farms positively impact Indiana's economy as a whole by generating tax revenue and creating jobs. ICMC also focuses on dried distillers grain (DDG) feed, research and regulation education as it relates to livestock feed.
Research tells the story many already know — investing in animal agriculture is an investment in community vitality.
DDGs research is a top priority for ICMC. Feeding distillers grain to livestock continues to be an important topic because of the widespread availability of distillers grain in Indiana and high cost of alternative feed grains. Currently, ICMC is working with other corn states to look at livestock diets with DDG incorporation.
