Digestible energy content for Berkshire triticale varies depending on season and site
Pluske, J.M., Pluske, J.R. and Kim, J.C. (2013) Digestible energy content for Berkshire triticale varies depending on season and site. In: Manipulating Pig Production XIV. Proceedings of the 14th Australasian Pig Science Association (APSA) Biennial Conference, 24 - 27 November, Melbourne, Australia p. 118.
A major aim associated with the development of Berkshire, a triticale variety propagated with funding from the Pork CRC, was to produce a feed grain with a high level of digestible energy (DE) and hence an ingredient that offered cost efficiencies in diet formulations. Berkshire has now been registered as a Plant Breeders' Rights (PBR) variety and has been grown in New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia. However, little has been documented in regard to the variation in DE content of Berkshire across these growing regions.
