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...

Maximizing the utilization of lower energy, higher fiber feedstuffs through more focused and effective use of xylanase
This project speaks directly to the objective of the National Pork Board to “enhance nutrient extraction from low energy feedstuffs including but not limited to the effect of dietary...

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...

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...

Effect of glucosamine supplementation on litter size in a commercial setting
Litter size is a key determinant of the efficiency of pork production. In turn, placental function is a key determinant of whether an individual pig fetus survives during gestation and also...

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...
