A live bottom tractor trailer unloads wet distillers grains plus solubles at a feedlot in eastern Nebraska.  These type of tractor trailer units are used to transport wet distillers grains from local ethanol plants to feedlots.  The floor of the trailer is made up of a belting material which moves the material out of the back of the truck when the unit is engaged. The material is then stockpiled at the feedlot before being used in cattle rations.
