Spray Dried Bovine Plasma for DON Contaminated Nursery Diets

The current experiment showed that DON did have a detrimental effect on ADFI and also showed some negative eff ects on ADG. Moreover, SDBP showed a beneficial effect on ADFI when present with DON in the diet but did not have a beneficial effect on ADG. Finally, DON...

Response of Finishing Pigs to High and Low Crude Protein Diets

Supplementing a low protein diet with the limiting amino acids is often more cost effective than using an additional amount of the particular protein source. Two experiments conducted using grower and finisher pigs confirmed that performance could be maintained when either high or low crude protein diets are...

High-Oil Oat Groats for Weaned Pigs

The interest for weaned pigs of oat groats with high oil content was evaluated. The groats contained 95 g oil, 159 g  crude protein and 3.72 Mcal DE/kg DM. Weaned pigs fed for 4 weeks (7 to 22 kg) with diets containing graded levels (0, 15, 30, 45%)...

Ensiled High Moisture Barley and Wheat in Nursery Pig Diets

The primary objective of this research was to investigate the nutritional value of high moisture (HM) barley and wheat ensiled with lactic acid bacteria (LAB) with or without the addition of feed enzymes for nursery pigs. Overall, the results showed that HM barley and wheat can be...

High Fibre Diets for Swine

Feed cost represents more than 60% of the variable cost of swine production and a major part of the feed cost is to ensure that pigs have adequate energy and protein supply to reach their optimum potential in terms of the production goals. Corn, wheat, barley, and soybean meal have been...

Feeding Mycotoxin Contaminated Grain

Mycotoxins are chemicals (secondary metabolites) produced by moulds or fungi infecting grains. There are over 400 known mycotoxins; however only a small number of these probably affect pig performance on a regular basis. It is important to note that the presence of the mould or fungi does not guarantee...
