Feeding Value of Cull Lentils
The current study was designed to characterize the nutritive composition, including digestibility and energy concentration, of feed-grade (cull) lentils for growing pigs. We conducted two studies. The first study determined the amount and digestibility of energy and amino acids in two samples of lentils. In the second study we used these values to formulate diets for growing and finishing pigs. We assume that if the pigs grow as expected, then the nutrient values determined in the first experiment are correct for that category of pig.
