Table 3 Contrast analysis for fresh brewer’s grain (T1) versus brewer’s grain stored at different storage temperatures (°C) and durations (days) (T2 to T10 (RH = 70%)

From: Nutritional and fungal load dynamics of fresh brewers’ grain stored under aerobic conditions

  1. SD Storage date (days), ST Storage temperature (°C), T Treatment, DM Dry matter, CP  Crude protein; NDF  Neutral detergent fiber, ADF  Acid detergent fiber, DOMD Digestible organic matter in the dry matter
  2. Values for T1 are means and other values are mean differences between T1 and the respective treatments
  3. *Contrast is significant (P < 0.05)
