From the webinar description:

During the first webinar in the Optimizing Feed Production series Part 1: Improving Pelleted Feed Quality sponsored by Kemin Animal Nutrition and Health – North America, attendees learned techniques to improve pelleted animal feed quality. In this second installment, attendees will learn from two expert speakers on how to use pelleted feed to maximize livestock and poultry performance. Dr. Wilmer Pacheco, extension specialist and assistant professor at Auburn University will discuss the “Effect of corn particle size and feed form on broiler performance.” He will specifically focus on:

  • The optimum particle size in broiler diets and the influence of particle size by the birds age and feed form
  • The microstructure of the pellet to increase reverse peristalsis and nutrient digestibility

The second speaker, Dr. Sarah Goodgame, poultry nutritionist with Provimi-Cargill Animal Nutrition will discuss “Live production implications of pellet quality and poultry performance.” During her presentation, attendees will learn:

  • How pelleting feed improves nutrient delivery, reduces feed sorting and wastage
  • Practical ways to increase feed intake, improved feed efficiency and increase production performance
  • Opportunity to learn from each other through LIVE Q&A!
