Understanding Nutrient Utilization in Swine

o understand the science of swine nutrition, it is first necessary to understand how major nutritional components are utilized by swine to meet their nutrient needs. Proteins, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, minerals, and water comprise the major nutritional components required by swine to meet maintenance, growth, and reproduction needs. Water is often an overlooked nutrient, and

Genesus Global Technical Report, Pig Health, a Sow’s Legacy – Part 2, September 18th 2015

Dr. Joe Rogowsky Director of Health and Biosecurity This report is the second of a series on the latest insights into four maternally derived factors that impact pig health: mitochondria, fetal programming, the microbiome and factors transferred in colostrum/milk.  The better we understand these, the better we can support them. A FAQ is what

Selection for residual feed intake alters the mitochondria protein profile in pigs.

Abstract Residual feed intake (RFI) is a production efficiency measurement used to account for the growth performance of an individual animal. Less efficient animals have greater levels of oxidative stress. A major source of in vivo oxidative stress is the mitochondria. In this study the protein profile of mitochondria was investigated to determine differences between
