Connecting farmers with high protein feed grain, a valuable commodity.

high protein grain is useful as feed for cattle, chickens, horses.  Offering a network connection resource & the "how to" so quality feed is used and keep unwanted spent grain out of the landfill.  A business can donate it, or may consider resale below market or resell at FMV to diversify cash flow for their business.

    If you were to contact fungi.com and Paul Stamets, they would sell you mushroom spores with which you can inoculate the bad feedstock, and use it as a mushroom growing medium. If you email them they will likely assist you with advice as best they can. I believe you could create an income source by rebuilding soil, selling the mushrooms if they are of good quality. These can also be used for rich animal feed.

    Perhaps soil and mushrooms are possible income sources from grain that has gone bad.
    Just some thoughts...

    I'm not sure which mushrooms would grow best, but they would know.

    Wishing you all the best!
