    I think layer mash and layer crumbles are the same thing, just different name.

    I was under the impression that mash was layer crumbles moistened. Could be wrong [​IMG]

    Feed terms are "regional" so one term may not mean the same thing from one area to another. This is how I understand the terms:

    Mash is a milled product made mostly of grain.

    Pellets are further processed mash extruded into a pellet shape.

    Crumbles are also processed thru extrusion but have broken into smaller particles.
