As fall transitions to winter and pastures go dormant, we are transitioning the diets we feed our cattle. In the fall we supplement our cattle with a ration of cracked corn, a bit of molasses and DDGs, which are a by-product of ethanol production. We feed DDGs because they’re high in protein and help our cattle maintain body condition through the wet, cold winter. As ranchers, we’re glad DDGs exist not only for their nutritional value but they help the agriculture community be more sustainable by cutting down on waste. Producing DDGs is a complex process and one of the first steps is drying the whole corn in a grain dryer after it’s picked. AD Many grain dryers, including this one at a local grain elevator, are fueled by propane which allows for consistent power, regardless of weather, location or time. Propane has long been a trusted fuel source because propane-powered grain dryers are 50% more efficient than past models and propane is a clean, efficient fuel source under the Clean Air Act of 1990. Not only is propane extremely versatile on farms, ranches and other agricultural operations, but 90% of the country’s propane is produced right here in the U.S.A which is an added-bonus. We are partnering with the Propane Education & Research Council to raise money for the National 4-H Council and give away a propane-powered firepit with a cover ($325 value) to one lucky follower! To enter, post a photo of yourself with your propane-powered equipment (could be a grain dryer, heater, farm equipment, grill, etc) on your social media page and tell us how you are keeping your farm, ranch and/or home sustainable through the use of propane. Make sure to follow and tag both @brandibuzzard and @propane_council and use the hashtag #PropaneFor4H for your entry to count. Every entry is $1 towards the 4-H council – together we can promote clean energy and raise money for 4-H! #propane #propanecandothat #farmlife #farm #ranchlife #rancher #womeninag #farmher #cattle
