Diets that had been processed using standard, long-term, and expander (high shear) conditioning tended to support greater ADG than an unconditioned meal control diet. Pelleting was necessary to maximize efficiency of growth, but only with standard and long-term conditioning. Indeed, the best efficiencies of gain were for pigs fed the expander processed diets, with no additional benefits from pelleting the expanded mash.; Swine Day, Manhattan, KS, November 21, 1996
