The fermentation of grains to produce alcohol yields whole spent stillage from which wet distillers grains (WDG) and thin stillage are obtained by screening and pressing or centrifugation. Usually, WDG are dried to yield dried distillers grains (DDG), or dried distillers grains with solubles (DDGS) if solubles in the thin stillage are added back to the(More)

The use of bunker silos for the storage of feedstuffs has increased in recent years in the Midwest. The increase in herd size and the desire for a relatively low cost storage system are some of the factors that have brought about this change. Generally, the cost for bunkers will be between 1/4 and 1/2 of that for tower silos. With proper management,(More)
This analysis examined chronic medical problems as a risk factor for depressive symptomatology using longitudinal survey data from a sample of rural Tennesseans. Two waves of data (1977 and 1983) were collected on 532 rural Middle-Tennessee residents. An initial investigation found chronic medical problems a powerful predictor of depression.
