Capturing genetic potential for greater sow lifetime productivity
Extensive collection of data on litter birth weight phenotypes has been a key part of the Preliminary (Phase 1) Trial and involved weighing successive litters born to over 1,000 Line 3 sows. In turn,...
Animal Science - Swine Nutrition
Effects of body weight and research conditions on the determination of the productive energy content of corn germ meal fed to growing-finishing pigs.
Corn germ meal (CGM), a co-product of the corn wet milling industry, is an ingredient that could be used to reduce the cost of swine diets. Efficient use of any ingredient requires an accurate...
