Feed Processing and Nutritional Quality among Wheat Classes Fed to Weaned Pigs

1 July 2016, at 6:00am

Feed processing and nutritional quality for CPS and Durum wheats have traditionally been expected to be lower than for Hard Red Spring (HRS).

Performance of weaned pigs was compared among six wheat classes, whilst considering particle size and diet pellet quality. Results indicated that feed processing quality and growth performance did not differ among wheat classes. Weaned pigs fed various classes of wheat including CPS and Durum may grow similarly.
