A non-starch polysaccharide (NSP)-hydrolyzing enzyme (Rovabio Excel®, Adisseo), was added to barley- and wheat-based diets and fed to lactating sows to determine if there would be an improvement in sow and piglet performance and feed digestibility. An in vitro experiment was also performed to assess how the enzyme would influence fermentation of dietary fibre in the pig’s large intestine. Although the enzyme improved nutrient digestibility and the energy content of the diet, there was no effect on sow or piglet performance.
