When farmers are looking for feed for their cattle due to drought or other shortages, they use a variety of products to supplement their feed.  I was interested to read this story about a spilled truck full of red Skittles that was on its way to be ground up and used as a cattle feed supplement.  The story in Growing Georgia noted that “the practice of feeding unusual ingredients to cows to light in a big way in 2012 when severe droughts caused feed prices to skyrocket.”   You can read more about this at Growing Georgia here.
