Small Grains & Livestock Feed Meeting
The Food Lab is co-hosting a small grains and livestock feed event with the University of Minnesota, Practical Farmers of Iowa, and Target to review GHG impacts from changing animal livestock feed rations to include small grains grown in rotation with corn and soybeans. Using the University of Minnesota’s FoodS3 Model, we’ll explore the potential for landscape change and ask questions like: What is the potential GHG impact of expanding small grain acres in the corn belt at scale? What type of feed demand is necessary to drive that impact? How would the industry verify the change using a FoodS3 tool or other supply chain tools? and much more!
This one-day event has been created for CIG partners (there might be a small number of non-partner seats available, if interested speak with Elizabeth Reaves). Previous to the livestock feed modeling, there will be an Impact Lab workshop focusing on GHG strategy and implementation tools.
