Using a Shaker Sieve to Evaluate Feed Quality in the Field

Feed particle size can have a tremendous impact on bird performance so it is important to know what is being given to the turkeys in the barn. Aviagen has developed a tool that allows producers to quantify particle size in the field. This Shaker Sieve is divided into four compartments to estimate the percentage of particles of different sizes. 

Here is a short video that demonstrates how to use the Shaker Sieve. You can also find a bulletin with instructions and a spreadsheet calculator in the Resource Center.
