A study funded by grant money provided by the Minnesota Corn Grower’s Association is focusing on how feedlot facility types affect fertilizer value.

“University of Minnesota Extension feedlot specialist Nicole Kenny Rambo says the study looked at three different types of facilities and how much value each of the provided to fertilizer,” WNAX radio station in Yankton, S.D., reports.

She says that they hope the study will bring numbers to farmers that they could share with lenders before starting feedlot construction.

In Lamberton and Rosemont, Minn., field demonstrations were held this week. The goal of the demonstrations was to share the study’s information and to show how producers can get the best value out of their fertilizer.

Listen to Rambo discuss the study.
