Beer & Milk prices to skyrocket

Post by junglecat » Tue Apr 15, 2014 7:32 pm

The POTUS , thru the use of the FDA has changed the regulations for spent grain. No law was passed by Congress , just a major revision of regulations by the FDA ,that will cost both industries billions.
Currently spent grain , the by product of brewing beer is loaded into tanker trucks and delivered directly to the dairies . Very little labor and cost is involved resulting in savings for both.
The revision is now all spent grain must be dried and individually bagged , under the supervision of the FDA. The packaged spent grain will be sold to the diaries at an increased price. So now the breweries will occur the cost of drying and packaging their by product, that they currently get rid of at a fraction of the cost. Dairies will have to absorb some of the cost as well as consumers of both BEER and milk. Price increases for everyone.
The FDA spokesperson said" this was done in the effort to insure the quality of health and well being of our livestock and pets." Huh
When the bad press started it was also added that this would create jobs. LOL

Junglecat,

I haven't looked into this particularly but when we buy wet brewers grain we know it is about 84-90% moisture, or water. Even though cows eat as fed lbs of feed, we turn it into a dry matter basis, dry the feed out and what do you get. We buy all our silages on a dry matter basis. This way you pay the same regardless of the moisture content.

We currently don't buy wet brewers grain because it doesn't price in. A lot of dairies are getting away from it because of price. We don't need it, it used to be free 25 years ago. Just something else that will end up in the dump. It is also very corrosive.

You would know better than anyone else. When I read the article , I thought " Here we go again , stick it to the farmer." The article said it was purchased at almost nothing right now , so basically , they won't be able to give it away . That should create a lot of jobs. Not

They (companies not government) have done the same thing with citrus pellets. The farmer prefers the rinds and not pellets. But they can pelletize everything left over from making juice. The cow prefers rinds as well.
