Effect of extrusion and steam flaking of cereals on growth rate and feed utilisation by weaned pigs

  • P. B. Lynch (a1) and I. Zoccarato (a2)

Extract

Heat treated cereals whether steamed and flaked or extruded are widely used in pig starter diets despite the dearth of experimental information to support the view that cooking of cereals improves their utilisation by young pigs or improves growth performance of weaned pigs.

McCone et al. (1991) showed that micronisation and flaking of cereals had no beneficial effect on pig performance. The objective in the present trial was to evaluate extruded and steamed-flaked wheat and steamed-flaked maize in diets for pigs immediately after weaning.
