Jim Paulson, PRO Division of Byron Seeds
We’ve been working on where we’re heading, trying to develop a ByronPro Energy Edge grower plan. The whole thing is about growing a value-added crop in this oil corn to help you achieve greater profitability and sustainability. Livestock producers are one of the key components in capturing the value-added of this grain. Especially, swine producers who grow their own corn can capture great value in this, poultry producers and the cattle and whether that’s feedlot or dairy. We’re working on those aspects.
I see this project going forward; it will be very interactive. The Byron Pro group will need to be in the middle of those conversations, so in a way, we’re matchmakers, right. —Michael Parsley, Livestock Feeding Consultant
We really want to have a team approach as we are working on the corn, the plan, the management, and trying to help you succeed in that. That’s part of what we’ve been doing with these plots this year—is working on some of the management issues agronomically to help ensure greater success.
