Grain Processing Is it Too Coarse or Too Fine? Dairy Cattle
Corn was fed as dry ground corn, dry rolled corn, high moisture ground corn and high moisture rolled corn, with a mean particle size of 618, 1725, 489, 1789 mm, respectively. Both grinding and moisture increased starch digestibility in the rumen. Grinding increased DMI and tended to increase yields of milk, protein, lactose, and solids nonfat.
