Background Maize oil is an abundant source of vegetable oil used in human foods and animal feeds. Maize oil provides 8579 kcal/ kg of ME [1], which is comparable to soybean oil (8574 kcal/kg), and greater than canola oil (8384 kcal/kg) and palm kernel oil (7119 kcal/kg) when added to swine diets. The addition of lipids to animal feeds not only increases energy density, but also enhances the absor ...

  Introduction Plant carbohydrates can be classified into three categories: 1) simple sugars and their conjugates (glucose, fructose, etc.); 2) storage reserve compounds (starch); and 3) structural carbohydrates (cellulose, hemicellulose, etc.). Simple sugars and storage compounds are primarily digested in the upper gastrointestinal tract of pigs, although not completely, while structural c ...

Introduction High ambient temperature-elicited heat stress (HS) is a detrimental pathophysiological event. Besides its threat to human health (Changnon et al. 1996; Leon and Helwig 2010), HS also negatively affects the growth performance, reproduction, and health status of farm animals (Hansen 2009; Renaudeau et al. 2011). Annual cost of HS on the US swine industry is over $300 million (St-Pierre ...

Introduction Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus (PEDV) is a pleomorphic, enveloped RNA virus, classified as a coronavirus under the family Coronaviridae [1]. The virus was first identified during an outbreak of diarrhea on a Belgian swine breeding farm in 1978 [2]. Upon infection with PEDV, suckling pigs experience diarrhea, vomiting, and high mortality [3]. Since the initial identification of PEDV, ...
