- ... The impact of sunflower meal quality (i.e. crude protein content and crude fibre content) on the technical parameters of the pelleting process and the physical properties of produced pellets was investigated. Five model mixtures were prepared for pelleting, with different ratios of corn, sunflower meal (SFM) and soybean meal (SBM). Three grades of sunflower meal were used in the experiments with c ...
