Subject: Disposing of spent grains

Last friday I had the exquisite pleasure of touring the
D.L. Geary Brewing Company in Portland (Maine, not the other one :),
producers of such nectars as Geary's Pale Ale and Hampshire Ale.
I don't have time today for a complete review, but one will be
following shortly.
Anyway, to get to the nub of my gist: they brew almost every day
and each brew uses 1000 lbs of 2-row barley (I'm getting goosebumps
just thinking about it :). I asked the guide/ass't brewmaster what
they did with all their spent grains. He said that a local farmer comes
by every brewing day in his pickup truck and takes it home to his
cattle.

Just adding a data point.
