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...

It is important to note that the presence of the mould or fungi does not guarantee...
