WEBINAR 15 FEB 2017: Segregation in bulk silos - what is really happening?

In February 2017 we were sponsoring a webinar at WattAgNet.com.  Read more and download slides below.

Title:   'Segregation in bulk silos: What is really happening?'
Presenters:   Joe Moritz (Professor, West Virginia University) and Tom   Winowiski (Technical Application Manager, LignoTech USA.
Date:   February 15 (Wednesday)
Time:   9:00 AM North American Central Time / 4:00 PM Central European Time

This webinar will review how segregation of fines occurs during feed bulk transport and handling and its impact on nutrient composition and animal performance/growth.
The presenters will also go over how improving pellet quality will help by reducing the total amount of fines. Videos will be shown to demonstrate how segregation is caused and quickly increased when bulk silos load/unload.

What you'll learn:

  • How fines can quickly increase from 20% to more than 50% during bulk handling and transport
  • Why it should be common practice to make sure the silo is empty before loading a different feed into it
  • Segregation impacts the nutrient profile and physical form of feed presented to animals
  • Variation of feed nutrients and physical form have been shown to significantly influence animal performance
