Garbage goes golden

Durango businesses find uses for refuse
Steve Jung says his cattle are “really spoiled” as he shovels beer mash from Ska Brewery for them on Thursday at his ranch south of Bayfield.
The cattle love the mash, but they primarily subsist on grass. Steve Jung, a rancher outside of Bayfield, picks up about 3,000 pounds of beer mash from Ska Brewery every day.
Beer mash contains mostly protein and fiber for the cattle, as the carbohydrates have been boiled out of the grain. Steve Jung, his wife, Shelly, and their daughter, Callie, 14, in the truck, watch as their cows lap up beer mash from Ska Brewing Co.
The daily loads of beer mash that Steve Jung hauls daily from Ska Brewery get splashed onto his pickup truck.
Each of his 200 cattle get about a coal shovel full of Ska Brewery mash a day, Steve Jung says.
