Rations containing varying ratios of corn, high-oil corn, soybean meal, and mechanically expelled soybean meal were pelleted. The effects of ingredients, conditioning steam pressure, and mixing paddle configuration inside the conditioner on pellet quality were investigated. Ration ingredients strongly affected pellet quality. Increasing the protein content increased the pellet durability, whereas increasing the oil content above 7.5% greatly decreased pellet durability. High-oil corn and… CONTINUE READING
