Assessing Whey to Reduce Feed Costs

Posted in: Uncategorized by admin on January 4, 2016

Deproteinized whey permeate is a by-product of the cheese-making
industry. Depending on the type of cheese being produced it can
be categorized as “sweet whey” or “acid whey”, the latter contains
about 4.7% organic acids. The objective of this experiment was to
determine the response of weanling pigs to 0, 8, 12 or 16% whey in
their drinking water and determine if the organic acids supplied in
the acid whey provided additional benefi t. Diets were formulated
to account for the nutrients in the whey based on intakes from a
previous experiment. Supplying up to 16% whey in the drinking
water increased caloric intake and improved growth rate. Depending
primarily on the cost of transporting the whey to the farm, it may be
an economical supplement for weanling pigs.
