Rate and efficiency of gain were not affected by adding as much as 20% distillers dried grains in isocaloric diets for nursery pigs or 30% in isocaloric diets for finishing pigs. These results demonstrate that the previously suggested maximums of 5% dis-tillers dried grains in nursery diets and 10% distillers dried grains in finishing diets are too(More)
The objective of this study was to determine the effects of diets containing crude glycerol on pellet mill production efficiency and nursery pig growth performance. In a pilot study, increasing crude glycerol (0, 3, 6, 9, 12, and 15%) in a corn-soybean meal diet was evaluated for pellet mill production efficiency. All diets were steam conditioned to 65.5(More)
SUMMARY The use of the pelleting process to improve feed nutrient utilization and meet customer expectations has continued to increase. Today in the U.S. more than 80% of feed for non-ruminant animals is pelleted and that number is increasing. The factors that influence pellet quality can be divided into several categories. It is generally agreed that the(More)
