Two experiments were conducted to determine the effect of pelleting and/or expander processing on the nutritive value of feed when fed to growing and finishing pigs. Experiment 1 determined the effects of pelleting and/or expander processing on the apparent nutrient digestibility of the diets. In experiment 2, productive performance and carcass characteristics were determined in group-fed pigs (n  = 312) offered identical diets in raw pellet form (T1), expander-processed pellet form (T2), raw… CONTINUE READING
