New ways of processing grain by-products to make feedstocks that are better for milk production will benefit both grain and dairy farmers across Canada
September 20, 2016

Albert Leyenhorst and his son, Logan, are second- and third-generation dairy and cash crop farmers in Dalmeny, Sask. The navy blue silos and red roofs of their farm can be spotted from a great distance; their purebred Holstein herd, and producing quality milk and strong, healthy cows, is their shared passion. To stay ahead of the curve, the Leyenhorsts have teamed up with the University of Saskatchewan’s Canadian Feed Research Centre in nearby North Battleford. The unique research facility is developing new ways of processing grain by-products to make feedstocks that are better for milk production, for the good of both grain and cattle farmers across Canada. The Leyenhorsts test those feedstocks on their farm.
