Nutritional Value And Environmental Implications Of Degermed, Dehulled Corn For Swine

North Carolina State University Swine Nutrient Management Research from 2002. Three experiments were designed to assess the feeding value and potential environmental benefits of feeding a low fiber by-product originating from the corn dry milling process, degermed, dehulled corn, to pigs. Results from these trials suggest that corn processed to remove poorly digestible fiber fractions provides more digestible nutrients than corn grain. As a result, degermed, dehulled corn improves feed efficiency and reduces fecal and N excretion.
