The United Sorghum Checkoff Program, which works to improve the profitability of the sorghum industry through research, promotion and information, has awarded a $100,000 grant to Enginuity Worldwide.
The company will use the money to expand its livestock feed technology program and produce better sources of animal feed using patented rotary compression technology.
“The United Sorghum Checkoff Program has provided us with a tremendous opportunity to research and develop affordable, nutritious animal feed that could help boost the production of agricultural systems across the country,” Enginuity Worldwide founder and CEO Nancy Heimann said. “Enginuity Worldwide is already working to find innovative solutions to a diverse range of issues using biotechnology and this financial partnership will help us apply our technology to agricultural uses.”
David Holzgraefe recently joined Enginuity Worldwide to help manage the company’s livestock feed technology research program. Holzgraefe has a bachelor of science in Agricultural Science, a masters of science in Ruminant Nutrition, and a Ph.D in Nonruminant Nutrition.
