Research to develop a digestible calcium system for pigs to be presented at Pig Feed Quality Conference in Bangkok

The latest data to be published from research to determine the digestible calcium (Ca) requirements for pigs and corresponding digestible Ca availability in feeds will be presented at the upcoming Pig Feed Quality Conference in Bangkok, Thailand, between 31 March and 1 April. The research is part of an ongoing collaboration between the University of

Genesus Global Technical Report, Improving Sow Reproductive Efficiency Using Genomic Selection, February 8th 2016

Improving Sow Reproductive Efficiency Using Genomic Selection Dinesh M. Thekkoot, PhD   Commercial pig breeding in general follows a crossbreeding program, where the selection decisions are made within a pure breeding nucleus and the final slaughter pigs are produced from crossbreeding in commercial herds. These kind of mating programs utilize individual and maternal heterosis

How does DON (deoxynivalenol) affect eating behaviour?

ON ingestion induces a reduction of feed intake in animals. In mice models DON-induced reduction in meal frequency (satiety) and meal size (satiation) by 44.2% and 68% respectively. Recent studies have brought new information regarding DON central effects especially in relation to anorexia/nausea. DON and inflammatory signals DON administration induced an up-regulation of proinflammatory cytokines

Moderate changes in Ca and P intake by young, gestating sows, does not negatively affect the growth of their piglets

This study was designed to determine the influence of Ca and P intake by young, gestating sows on the growth and skeletal development of their developing piglets and if smaller birth-weight piglets are at greater risk from mineral insufficiency during gestation. A total of 30 sows were randomly assigned to 1 of 3 dietary Ca:P

Genesus Global Technical Report, Population Health Research Update

Nick Boddicker, Ph.D.   Population health and the role genetics plays is a fascinating area of research and its implications for the industry can be substantial. New technology and computing power has allowed advancement in this area that previously was not possible and/or feasible. The recent December issue of National Hog Farmer reported on

Research Update: Streptococcus suis

S.F. Amass, L.K. Clark, R. Struve, P. San Miguel, C.C. Wu, K. Knox, and M.A. Hill Departments of Veterinary Clinical Sciences, Biology, and Veterinary Pathobiology; and Swine Practitioner, Manning, Iowa   Streptococcus (S.) suis can cause brain, joint, lung, and heart infections in pigs. Thus, treatment and mortality costs are greatly increased in herds where

Determining the Optimum Stocking Density in Nursery Pigs

Producers must balance the potential negative consequences of high stocking densities and the economic incentive to maximize production when determining the number of pigs placed per pen or building unit. The minimum space requirement in the Canadian Code of Practice for the Care and Handling of Pigs (k= 0.0335) is based on extensive research on

Genesus Global Technical Report, Cost-effective genomic selection for pig feed efficiency, November 16th 2015

Cost-effective genomic selection for pig feed efficiency Chunyan Zhang, PhD Postdoctoral Fellow, University of Alberta / Genesus Inc. For the pig industry, feed is the largest cost of production, accounting for about 65% of the total cost.  Breeding feed efficient pigs is an important tool for a pig breeding company to assure its continued competitiveness

Saccharomyces cerevisiae boulardii CNCM I-1079 improves sow’s feed intake in lactation: Results of a meta-analysis

Results of a meta-analysis show that probiotic yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae boulardii CNCM I-1079, helps increase sow feed intake during lactation.1 The study was presented by Lallemand Animal Nutrition at the American Dairy Science Association® (ADSA) and American Society of Animal Science (ASAS) Joint Annual Meeting, July 12-16, 2015, in Orlando, Florida. Optimal feed intake in
