Title: The Economics of Flax Screenings For Backgrounded Steer Calves
Author: Boyles, S.L.; Dreft, B.S.
Description: The authors discuss the usage of screenings as a source of cheap livestock feed for cattle and sheep. Screenings are the residue from harvested grains such as broken and cracked kernels, weed seeds, chaff and dirt. These are abundant and inexpensive. A study was conducted to ascertain whether barley/flax screenings were as effective in increasing the weight of cattle as a non-screen barley/flax diet. The cattle that received a non-screened diet gained .1 pound faster than those fed screenings. Those receiving screenings returned $3.21 per head to labor and management.
