Optimizing Glycerin Levels

Subsequent years' research will focus on optimizing glycerin level and diet ingredient formulation to maximize glycerin feed value and expanding glycerin feeding applications to pasturing cattle, lactating dairy cattle, and liquid diets for swine. The potential of using glycerin as an energy source in animal diets could not be more timely. The competition for corn by ethanol plants is expected to buoy corn prices, placing pressure to identify alternative energy sources to corn for feeding animals. Glycerin could well be such an alternative energy source
