Think of NEW Cooperative Feed Department as a value-added resource for all NEW customers. While our mills create animal rations we’re using locally-produced corn. We’re adding soybean meal and DDGS—the byproducts of local ethanol production.
Every year we create feed using approximately 35 million bushels of corn and use another 575,000 tons of grain by-products. That’s the production from over 550,000 acres of Iowa farmland finding a grain market close to home.
