Bailey, H., J. Campbell, and H. H. Stein. 2022. The combination of spray dried plasma and reduced crude protein in diets decreases circulating cytokines of weanling pigs. 15th International Symposium on Digestive Physiology of Pigs. Animal - Science Proceedings 13(Issue...
There are several factors related to dietary Ca that may influence digestibility of amino acids (AA). By chelating to dietary phytate, dietary Ca can form non-digestible Ca-phytate complexes, and this may result in reductions of P and AA digestibility....
Rundle, C. M., V. Artuso-Ponte, and H. H. Stein. 2022. Isoquinoline Alkaloids Improve Intestinal Function of Weanling Pigs Fed Corn-Soybean Meal Diets Formulated Below Amino Acid Requirements. J. Anim. Sci. 100(Suppl. 2): 183–184. doi.org/10.1093/jas/skac064.311. Link to Abstr.
Addition of probiotics to swine diets may improve gut health by modifying the microflora, which may help control pathogens, enhance immune response, and increase nutrient digestibility. Once consumed by the pig, probiotics enter the stomach where they are subjected...
Michael Schwirtz, Andrew E. Kramer and Michael Levenson reported on the front page of Sunday’s New York Times that, “President Vladimir V. Putin warned on Saturday that crippling economic sanctions imposed by the West were ‘akin to a declaration...
Source: PigHealthToday.com The latest disease outbreaks fueled by new disease variants are good reminders that the best biosecurity plans must include strategies to keep disease contained within a barn as well as ways to prevent new disease outbreaks. “We have to...
  Chad Bierman, PhD, Geneticist, Genesus Inc. Profitability is driven by many different components of swine production. It has been suggested that the number of full value pigs sold out of pig operations may be the largest factor affecting profitability (Boyd,...
Source: PigHealthToday.com A new study shows that a modified-live virus (MLV) vaccine for porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV) provides protection against the highly pathogenic European field isolate AUT15-331 (PRRSV-1, subtype 1) — with a single dose given to...
Neospora caninum is a protozoan parasite, reported as a leading cause of cattle abortions and reproductive failure worldwide, costing the cattle industry approximately $1.3 billion annually. With wild pig (Sus scrofa) populations estimated at over six million in the...
Rapeseed is the second most produced oilseed in the world after soybean, and after the oil is extracted, a protein-rich meal is the resulting byproduct containing greater concentrations of sulfur amino acids (AA; i.e., Met and Cys) and Lys...
