In this experiment, the efficacy of a variety of grains to control SD was tested. Grains were fed either "raw" or after steam-flaking for 20 min at 150°C, "cooked". Steam-flaking is likely to increase digestibility in the small intestine causing a lower volume of nutrients to be available in the large intestine for microbial fermentation. This environment may be less favourable for the colonisation and proliferation of S. hyodysenteriae.
