Applying Enzyme Technology to Optimize the Utilization of Fibrous Feed Ingredients in Swine Diets – Applied Feeding Studies
The long-term goal of this project was to improve the utilization of fibrous ingredients in swine through the strategic application of enzymes. We hypothesized that supplementation of enzymes to...

Gut physiology and metabolomics profile of pigs fed diets with carbohydrases enzymes and distillers dried grains with solubles
Feeding high fiber feed ingredients (e.g. wheat middlings and corn distillers dried grains with solubles) significantly decreases feed efficiency of pigs. However, the addition of carbohydrase...

Refining a model to investigate the interactive effects of health status and nutrition on nutrient and energy utilization in pigs
Each year the National Pork Board identifies infectious disease prevention as a high-priority research area. The prevention and treatment of diseases common to swine operations represents a...

Evaluation of dietary soybean meal replacement on grow-finisher pig performance when challenged with PRRS and Mycoplasma
The amino acids requirements of growing-finishing pigs are met by utilizing a variety of protein rich ingredients, including soybean meal (SBM) and distillers dried grains with solubles, as well as...

Development of "Nutritional Tools" to Estimate ME Content in Rendered Animal Protein By-products for Swine – Revised with Expanded Objectives
Rendering is a process of grinding, heating, partial separation of fat, and drying of a wide array of inedible animal and carcass tissues, including blood, feathers, muscle, bones, fat, and...

Evaluating nutritional strategies to mitigate the negative impact PRRS has on grow-finisher pig performance
Of the health challenges the swine industry face, Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome (PRRS) virus is arguably one of the most economically costly viruses to U.S. and world pork production....

Enhancing nutrient utilization of corn DDGS by feed enzymes in the pig intestine
Price and availability of conventional feedstuffs like corn and wheat used in pig diets are widely variable due to the variation in production and ever-increasing demand. This is also because...

Correlation between physical characteristics of diets and absorption of energy by pigs
Distillers dried grains with solubles (DDGS), wheat middlings, and soybean hulls are cost-effective co-products that may replace some corn in swine diets. However, these co-products contain more...

An Integrated Evaluation of the Nutrient Uplift Provided by Xylanase in Finishing
The current study evaluated the efficacy of xylanase and phytase supplementation to growing-finishing pigs fed diets containing a high amount of by-products (corn DDGS, corn germ meal and wheat...
