Evaluating Feed Processing of Wheat in Swine Diets

The point was to expand knowledge of how particle size and pelleting for nursery and finisher diets containing wheat can improve performance and economic return.

Key Points:

  • Feed efficiency improves as wheat particle size drops to less than 600 microns for meal diets, but not for pelleted.
  • Hard red winter wheat produced superior daily gain and feed intake compared to soft white winter wheat, but feed efficiency was similar.
