Progress in research in swine nutrition in China: where it was, where it is, and where it is headed
Dr. Defa Li, Professor, College of Animal Science and Technology at the China Agricultural University, Beijing, China.
 
Over the past 2 decades, Chinese nutrition research has progressed to become a major global force. A large investment in well trained personnel, modern equipment and enhanced facilities has greatly strengthened their research capability. Much of their focus has been on development of a feed ingredient database and nutrient requirements book specifically focused on China, pork quality improvement through genetics and nutrition, gut health related to dietary fiber and the development of new feed additives to replace antibiotics.

Feeding to optimize the performance of the highly prolific female and her offspring
Dr. Peter Theil, Full Professor, Aarhus University, Tjele, Viborg, Denmark
 
This presentation will discuss the feeding of sows during transition and lactation to minimize farrowing problems, lower still births, while maximizing colostrum production and pre-weaning survival, and sow milk yield/litter daily gain and reduce sow tissue mobilization. Special attention will be given to dietary fibers, because they have a variety of beneficial effects in sow diets.

Nutritive and non-nutritive roles of fiber in the diet. Is there any good news?
Dr. John Patience, Professor, Iowa State University, Ames, IA
 
Fiber is often viewed as a negative in pig diets, because it acts as a nutrient diluent, reduces bulk density and impairs energy and nutrient digestibility. But fiber can also play a role in gut health and impact the severity of certain diseases. The past decade has seen tremendous growth in our knowledge about fiber, but what does it all mean, and how can these advances improve the way we feed pigs? This presentation will start with the best ways to analyze fiber, and go from there.

Feeding to optimize performance and viability of growing pigs
Dr. R. Dean Boyd, Alvaton, KY
 
This paper will address 6 Nutrition topics that we are not getting right or are emerging. Some opportunities are hidden in plain sight. Considerations will span from weaning to market and entail calibration methodology of Ingredient NE, deriving population relevant lysine curves, growth promoting effects of soybean meal for pigs under high and low immune stress and dietary enzyme use for nutrient uplift and improved viability.

The role of modelling in nutrition and management – Current successes and future prospects
Dr. Neil Ferguson, Trouw Nutrition, Guelph, ON. Canada
 
This paper will focus on how commercial application of a model can provide practical nutrition, economic and management solutions in a persistent volatile pig market. Attention will be given to key drivers for success, real examples, new innovations e.g weaning and post-weaning growth, feed additives and gut health, and some opportunities for future digital innovations.

Xylanase: Translating its mechanism of action into successful application in swine diets
Dr. Amy Petry, Assistant Professor, Texas Tech University, Lubbock, TX
 
Supplementing xylanase is often considered a black box of variable performance outcomes. A better grasp on its mechanism of action, specifically in the presence of corn-based fiber, should help. This presentation will summarize our current understanding of the mode of action of xylanase that differ considerably from current dogma. Special attention will be given to translating this knowledge into strategies to improve pig health and fiber utilization.

Energy: How to value dietary fat and implications for diet formulation
Dr. Trey Kellner, Nutritionist, AMVC, Audubon, IA
 
This discussion will highlight attempts to assign caloric values to dietary fat and the impact of dietary fat and diet caloric density on caloric intake, carcass gain, and economic outcomes. Plus, the impact of dietary fat on carcass fat quality and other economic variables will be discussed.
