KansasStateUniversity researchers received a $939,220 grant from the USDA
National Research Initiative in Food Safety to study the connection between
distillers grains feed and the naturally occurring pathogen E. coli 0157:H7
in cattle. The researchers will study whether feeding varied amounts of distillers grains—dried or wet—has an effect on the
prevalence of E. coli in cattle feces. The three-year study will begin in the
summer of 2009, the season when the pathogen is typically most prevalent.
