FARGO—If animals could talk, some cows at North Dakota State University might toast a pair of Fargo beer and spirit makers.

Drekker Brewing Company and Proof Artisan Distillers have been sending their spent grains to the animal sciences program to feed heifers.

"We're using grains designed by NDSU, and donate those grains back to the university. It's fun when you come full circle," said Mark Bjornstad, co-founder and president of Drekker, adding that most of the grain Drekker uses is from the region.
