Is Cracked corn better than whole corn?
Keeping this in view, what is the difference between cracked corn and whole corn?
Corn can be fed whole with excellent results, but cracking or rolling it will increase digestibility by 5-10%. Feed conversion was improved by leaving the corn whole over dry rolling. The difference may be due to extent of chewing. Chewing capacity is much greater for younger cattle (weanlings) than older cattle.
Also Know, what is cracked corn used for? Cracked corn is exactly what it sounds like: corn kernels that have been dried and cracked into pieces that are easier for birds to eat than unbroken kernels. The size of grains can vary depending on what type of grinder is used to crack the corn, but coarse grinding is preferred for small backyard birds.
Likewise, people ask, do deer prefer whole corn or cracked corn?
Yeah whole corn is better because cracked corn can mold and stuff way easier and all animals will eat the whole corn espacially deer.
Can you eat cracked corn?
Deer Corn, Cracked Corn, and Whole Corn are commonly found at feed stores like North 40, hunting stores such as Cabellas, and of course superstores like Walmart. Not much, in fact you are perfectly ok to eat the corn grain straight from the bag; however it is a little hard (corn nuts anyone).
