The Center for Agribusiness and Economic Development (CAED) conducted an economic assessment for organizing a value-added venture involving the mixing of cotton and peanut by-products. A local group of producers who currently own and operate a peanut buying point and cotton gin are interested in utilizing the by-products from these two operations to feed cattle. The group requested a study through the Georgia Cooperative Development Center. In early 2006, a study was conducted based on information supplied by the producers, University of Georgia, USDA and industry to determine the economic feasibility of such operations.
