Evaluation of an in vitro digestibility procedure for dietary fiber in high fiber feed ingredients fed to growing pigs
Use of high fiber feed ingredients in commercial swine diets is a common strategy to decrease feed costs during times of high corn and soybean meal prices. However, the addition of high fiber...

Improving energy utilization in high by-product diets with copper
The overriding objective is to determine if energy utilization from diets containing high levels of by-products and differing in energy content can be improved with supplemental Cu in commercial...

Should Producers Invest in 2-High, 3-High, or 4-High Roller Mills?
The overall objective of this research is to help producers decide whether they should invest in a 2-High, 3-High, or 4-High roller mill when considering technology to reduce particle size to...

Impact of disease on amino acid requirements of growing pigs
A total of 40 gilts (initial BW 9.4 ± 0.9 kg) were used in three experiments (Exp) to evaluate the impact of disease induced either by bacterial lipopolysaccharide (LPS) or porcine...

Applying Enzyme Technology to Optimize the Utilization of Fibrous Feed Ingredients in Swine Diets – Nutrient Digestibility
The increasing industrial demand for feed grains, partly for biofuel production, has raised the price forecast for feed grains. Co-products are a short-term solution for commercial swine production...

Investigation of the impact of increased dietary insoluble fiber through the feeding of dried distiller’s grains with solubles (DDGS) on the colonic microbiota of pigs with and without Brachyspira-associated colitis
The diversion of an increasing portion of the U.S. corn crop to ethanol production has resulted in increased feed costs for pork producers. To mitigate this trend, many pork producers have...

Understanding the effects of increased fiber from corn origin on the supply of energy and nutrients to the pig
Objective: An experiment was conducted, using the ileal-cannulated animal model, to determine the nutrient value of fiber from corn and its co-products, and the effect of its increase in the...
