Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Weekly composite feed samples were collected from three farms that had manually filled tube type feeders and three that had automatic pan type feeders. Feed from pan type feeders had four-fold higher fungal activity than did feed from tube type feeders. The data suggest that the ratio of surface area to feed weight was associated with this difference.
