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...

Effects of pelleting and extrusion on energy and nutrient digestibility in diets fed to pigs
The objective of the present work was to determine if extrusion, pelleting or the combination of extrusion and pelleting has the ability to...

A longitudinal assessment of the impact PRRSV has on grow-finisher pig tissue accretion and digestibility in commercial production
This research examined the impact PRRSV infection had on grow-finisher gilt performance, apparent total tract digestibility and tissue accretion rates. Thirty littermate pairs of Choice Genetic...
