The technology for pelleting feeds has been around for many years. While numerous benefits are documented for feeding pigs pelleted feed, adoption has been mainly limited to large producers who own their own feed mill or those close to a large commercial pellet mill to justify the extra cost. However, with the increased cost of feed ingredients, the economics of pelleting are becoming much more favorable.
