Wheat co-products vary in protein digestibility when fed to pigs

Study provides guidance to producers who hope to incorporate wheat co-products into diets fed to pigs.

Research from the University of Illinois is helping to determine the quality of protein in wheat middlings and red dog -- two co-products of the wheat milling process that can be included in diets fed to pigs and other livestock.
