The Distillers Grains Technology Council has taken the annual symposium virtual and with a new format: as an on-line webinar held in three occurrences. The first session was completed on May 13th and this second part will take place on June 10th.
Because sponsors have agreed to offset the costs of the technology, the promotion of these seminars will be at no cost to attendees. These will be appropriately sized portions of information, with each webinar lasting 90 minutes and featuring many of the speakers that were scheduled to appear in Omaha.
This second session is at 1:00 PM (Central Time) and will be sponsored by ICM.
