Research has established that reducing the particle size of cereal grains improves the nutritional value of grains fed to swine. The finer particles produce more surface area and allow for better digestibility and more efficient use of both the protein and carbohydrate portions of grain. However, caution should be observed as feed ground too fine may contribute to stomach ulcers in swine, increased dust, bridging in bulk bins and feeders, and requires greater energy and time for processing.
