This webinar reviews how segregation of fines occurs during feed bulk transport and handling and its impact on nutrient composition and animal performance/growth. We will also go over how improving pellet quality will help by reducing the total amount of fines. Videos will be shown to demonstrate how segregation is caused and quickly increased when bulk silos load/unload.
This webinar will broadcast at 9:00 AM Central.
WHAT YOU’LL LEARN:
- How fines can quickly increase from 20% to more than 50% during bulk handling and transport
- Why it should be common practice to make sure the silo is empty before loading a different feed into it
- Segregation impacts the nutrient profile and physical form of feed presented to animals
- Variation of feed nutrients and physical form have been shown to significantly influence animal performance
This webinar is sponsored by Borregaard LignoTech, and is presented by WATT Global Media.
