2017-141: Evaluating steam-flaking of barley to improve feed efficiency for finishing beef cattle

Researcher: Greg Penner

Funding: $66,000

Project Description:

Feed for cattle has evolved over the past 50 years, and new innovations in this area are increasingly common. Animal health is a priority while investigating these changes, as are financial considerations. The researchers in this study compare temper-rolling, dry-rolling, and steam-flaking barley in a series of studies, including those in small pens, to determine growth performance, feed efficiency, and carcass characteristics.

Results: Waiting for research results.
