Description

Grain companies and seed cleaning plants are making grain screenings available to livestock producers as feed. But to optimize the nutrient value to animals, processing by grinding or rolling is required. In addition, grain and weed seeds must be rendered nonviable. This research update looks at the viability of using grain screenings from seed cleaning operations and grain elevators as an economical livestock feed.
