Young, Eduardo Beltranena •Solvent -extracted canola meal (CM) has relatively low energy value due to high dietary fibre content. • Soy expeller (SE) is now locally produced in Canada and has greater energy value than imported soybean meal.

Breeding Pigs for Increased Natural Disease Resistance

  Background Disease resistance is the ability of a host to resist infection or exert control over the life cycle of a pathogen. There is evidence of genetic variation in response to disease for nearly every disease in livestock that has been thoroughly studied, supporting the utility of genomic selection to identify and breed livestock

Phosphorus Requirement of Grower Pigs

  Author(s): E.D. Ekpe and R.T. Zijlstra Publication Date: January 1, 2000 Reference: Prairie Swine Centre Annual Report 2000 pp. 18 Country: Canada   Summary: Over-supplementation of diets with phosphorus (P) to maximize pig performance results in excess P in manure, which could have an impact on environment if not managed properly. A better understanding of P needs might

Genesus Global Technical Report: Markets in Russia

Genesus Global Market Report: Canada––Slow and Steady Wins the Race?

  Canada – Slow and Steady wins the Race? Bob Fraser – Sales & Service, Genesus Ontario  bfraser@genesus.com   StatsCan recently released its July 1st hog inventory report. It placed total inventory of all hogs at 14.1 million head up 2% from a year ago. The market hog inventory was up 2% while the sow

Geothermal Systems for Heating and Cooling in Swine Production

    This study assessed the applicability of a geothermal system in swine production facilities. In-barn evaluation of the impact of the geothermal system on energy use, thermal environment, greenhouse gas emissions, and animal performance was conducted by comparing a swine grow-fi nish room with geothermal system to a conventional production room with a forced-convection

Group Housing for Weaning Sows?

LRIC Research spotlight How weaning sows directly into group housing affects their performance By Lilian Schaer for Livestock Research Innovation Corporation Social stress from mixing sows can negatively affect their production and welfare. Housing sows in stalls from weaning until five weeks after breeding is a common strategy to manage the animals during the sensitive

Application of Nanoparticles for Controlling Disease-Causing Microorganisms in Pig Barns

    By: Predicala & A. Alvarado Laboratory-scale tests conducted to evaluate the effect of various types of commercially-available nanoparticles on the levels of microorganisms commonly encountered in swine barn environments showed Zinc oxide (ZnO) nanoparticles had the highest antimicrobial efficacy among all the nanoparticles tested. Further experiments carried out in the barn indicated that

Does Creep Feeding Improve Post Weaning Performance?

  Weaned piglets are subjected to a number of nutritional, social and environmental stressors. They are separated from the sow, moved to a new environment, mixed with non-littermates and expected to begin consumption of a novel diet (transitioning from sow’s milk to solid feed). It is difficult to determine how much each stressor contributes to
