Measuring Ammonia Emissions from Urine Puddles

Ammonia is a common gas found in pig barns that has a strong odour and can irritate the workers exposed and have environmental consequences. The main sources of ammonia in pig housing units are the urine puddles and slurry pit. Barn floors have plenty of...

Response of Growing Pigs to Graded Levels of Flaxseed

As a way to diversify rations and reduce cost or to alter the final pork product, alternative ingredients for pig diets are often investigated. Flaxseed is of interest as the amount of acreage for flax is increasing so the quantity available will rise. A nutrient...

Developing Weaning Pig Programs Based on Age and Weight

Needs for less antibiotic usage, lower costs, improved performance and reduced variability make feeding the newly weaned pig challenging. Diets were monitored on pigs of different weight and age to see what they respond to better in order to reduce body weight variability after the...

Increasing Diet Tallow and Dietary Energy on Performance

The most expensive nutrient in pig diets is energy. Previous research has shown that diets with differing energy concentration led to equivalent performance in pigs. Dietary energy was investigated regarding its impact on carcass quality, uniformity of growth and its relationship to pig performance. Grower-finisher...

Effect of Wheat Quality and Xylanase Supplementation on Weaned Pigs

Variation in nutritional quality of feed is common and impacts the pigs performance. Protein and fibre content influence nutritional quality between wheat samples. A fibre degrading enzyme supplement may reduce quality variation of wheat on pig performance. The variation was partially reduced by xylanase supplementation...
