Flaking grain is one of the ways feeders can increase the nutritional value of the grain fed to cattle. Flaking grains has proven benefits for both beef and dairy producers by increasing the digestibility of grain in the rumen. The digestibility of the flake is directly correlated to the flake weight, so the lighter the weight, the more digestible the flake becomes and more starch nutrients are absorbed in the rumen.
Steaming the grain before flaking enhances the nutritional value even more. This is where grain is poured into a large chamber and then hot moisture or steam is introduced. The grain is held for a period to absorb some of this hot moisture before flaking. According to Steve Armbruster, higher moisture content in the grain creates a flatter rolled flake and the starch is gelatinized as well, which makes it more availa...

Cleaning is thorough, and handling is gentle because of the unique rotary screen/auger design. As the drum rotates, three processes occur. First, the grain moves the length of the drum to the discharge end. Second, it moves laterally across the diameter of the drum. Third, it is constantly stirred so the grain passes over the screen repeatedly while it is moving directionally. Trash and fines are thoroughly removed from the grain with the fines being separated from larger screenings and grain and are deposited in separate chutes.
The R & R Machine Works grain cleaner can be installed anywhere since it is a non-vibrating...
