The Effect of Liquid Application Times, and Mixer Types with Different Wet Mix Times on Uniformity of Mix

Liquid addition systems are often designed to add liquid ingredients with the shortest application time in order to increase the batching capacity and efficiency of the mixing process. The quantity of liquid that is added into the mixer affects batch cycle time, particularly when there is a programmed “wet mix” time, or mixing time after liquid application has completed. Shorter...

Effect of Sample Preparation and Extended Mix Times with Different Salt Particle Sizes on the Uniformity of Mix of a Corn-Soybean Meal Swine Diet

The uniformity of a feed mixture is determined from the coefficient of variation (CV) of 10 samples in a single batch of feed. The feed industry standard is a CV of less than 10% using a single source tracer, such as salt, trace minerals, or iron filings. The objectives of these experiments were to determine the effects of 1) extended mix time, 2) particle size of the marker, and...

Effect of wheat mill run on finishing pig performance

Finishing pigs were fed diets containing 0, 15, 30, or 45% wheat mill run (WMR) during cold and hot weather. Results indicate that 15% WMR can be included in finishing swine diets without adversely affecting pig performance. Apparent digestibilities of dry matter, gross energy, and crude fiber were lower (P < .05) for diets containing WMR than for the control. During cold weather...

Effect of processing on physical characteristics, handling properties and utilization of wheat middlings

Wheat middlings were pelleted and ground through different types of grinders. The resulting products were incorporated into finishing pig diets and a digestion trial was conducted to determine the effect of processing on nutrient utilization. Pelleting and grinding midds prior to use in pelleted finishing diets improved pelleting throughput and efficiency. Results of the...
