Compressive strength of sorghum kernels was measured to determine the effect of storage conditions on processing for animal feed. Ensiling grain affected a larger decrease in kernel compressive strength than did storage at a high moisture level. Results similar to the above were noted for tests conducted on kernels obtained from animal feces. Microscopic examination of kernels from each treatment revealed greater removal of kernel structure for those of lower compressive strength
