AMES, Iowa — The Distillers Grains Technology Council, based at Iowa State University, will host its annual scientific meeting next month in Kansas City, Missouri.

“The symposium will provide the latest information and issues on distillers grains marketing and merchandising, animal nutrition, processing technologies and governmental regulations,” said Kurt Rosentrater, executive director of the Distillers Grains Technology Council and assistant professor of agricultural and biosystems engineering at Iowa State.

The 19th Annual Distillers Grains Symposium will be held May 13 and 14 at the Sheraton Crown Center. The main part of the symposium will be scientific presentations by university researchers and representatives from industry and governmental organizations.

The Distillers Grains Technology Council came to Iowa State when Rosentrater was named its executive director and chief executive officer. It is a nonprofit organization, founded in 1945, that works to educate livestock feeders and distillers grains producers, to improve the value and utilization of distillers grains in animal feeds.
