Improving milk production efficiency and mitigating feed costs in lactating sows through dietary crude protein abatement and crystalline amino acid supplementation under thermo neutral and thermal stress environment model
Objectives:To determine if lactating sows can be fed diets containing less protein in order to reduce the quantity of nitrogen excreted into the environment. To determine if sows fed...

Evaluation of a microbially-converted soybean meal as a substitute for fishmeal and a dietary acidifier in nursery pig diets and its effect on post-weaning diarrhea
There is concern that current demands for fish, and its resultant by product fishmeal (FM), are at unsustainable levels, as such, efforts are being placed on finding alternatives sources of...

Improving nutrient utilization and biological and financial performance through the use of super-dosing of phytase in grow-finish diets
The objective of this research was to determine the impact of feeding grow-finish pigs super-dosed levels of phytase on the digestibility of nutrients, and pig growth performance. The enzyme...
