Importance of feed structure (particle size) and feed form ...

Besides feed composition, as the most important factor that determines the efficiency of feed utilization by pigs, feed structure (particle size) and feed form (mash, pellets) are also important for the optimal nutrient utilization (Wondra et al., 1995a, Choct et al., 2004, Thorsten, 2011, Ball et al., 2015).

Particle size | Hans H. Stein.illinois.edu

Particle size is an important consideration for some feed ingredients in pig diets. Reducing the particle size of cereal grains and soybean meal in diets fed to pigs improves digestibility of energy, amino acids, and other nutrients, because feed ground to smaller particle sizes has more surface area on which digestive enzymes can work.
