    Jan 02, 2014 It should take up to 2 weeks to shift feedlot cattle for corn to high-wheat diets. The fiber level of wheat is also low (about 3%), so the fiber content of the ration would need to be adjusted to keep it at least 6% in the total ration. Wheat should be coarsely ground or rolled to prevent fines

    Whole vs. ground dry-shelled corn Dry, whole shelled corn has been equal or slightly superior to ground or rolled corn in high-concentrate beef cattle rations in many recent trials. Processing appears to have some value for dry-shelled corn in rations with 20 percent or more roughage content, or when corn is very dry, less than 12 percent moisture

    Should your cows take their corn rolled, flaked or ground

    Aug 06, 2015 High-moisture corn, either shelled or earlage, is the most digestible. Flaked corn would be ranked next in digestibility, followed by fine-ground corn, steam-rolled corn, medium-ground corn and then dry-rolled or cracked corn. Each process can then be further divided by particle size. The finer the particle, the more rapid the digestion

    When evaluating corn particle size, shoot for an average particle size of 750 to 850 microns or less. While lab testing is the most accurate method, microns can be estimated on-farm using a hand-crank flour sifter. Weigh out 10 ounces of ground corn and sift the sample until all particles and fines that can get through the screen have done so

Whole corn will pretty much go straight throuh a cow, the cow's gut can't break the seed covering, cracked corn is somewhat better, I would soak it before feeding. cooking the whole corn is about the most cost effective way to go.
