Feed is one of the most important component which accounts for 60 to 70% of the total cost of pig production. In commercial piglet diets, allowing only protein feedstuffs to meet the dietary lysine needs of the animal would increase levels of other essential and non-essential amino acids (AA) beyond requirement. This would eventually result in diets with higher crude protein (CP) content. The majo ...

Conclusion Response of juvenile Nile tilapia to 3 levels of dietary Met (0.77 %, 0.95 % and 1.15 %) and 4 levels of dietary Lys (1.2 %, 1.6 %, 2.0 %, and 2.4 %) were evaluated in 3x4 factorial design over a 56-d feeding trial. Data showed main effects of both Met and Lys as well as their interaction (Lys x Met) effects on the performance of tilapia. Looking at the interaction effects, it was e ...

Stephen Adejoro Dr Please be aware that betaine CANNOT replace methionine. Use of betaine as an osmoregulator is completely correct; and yes, it CAN play a role as a methyl donor. However, methionine is an essential amino acid, and cannot be replaced. When methionine donates methyl groups, it is recycled and so betaine plays no role in replacement. Numerous trials have concluded that partially rep ...

Dr. Amit Kumar Pandey Incorrect sir! Oils are actually BETTER than carbohydrates (CHOs) as an energy source in heat stress conditions This is because heat increment is less for lipids than for CHOs; so the animal produces less internal heat and so reduces risk. Net energy systems recognise this and should be used over AME systems. Further, liver insult is more pronounced when processing CHO energ ...

In any experiment looking at dose response to a single nutrient, all other nutrients need to be maintained at a level where they do not impact on performance parameters being investigated. Obviously if this is not the case, results obtained may be due to deficit of another nutrient, rather than that being studied. In this case, all SID AA levels were maintained at a level expected to be sufficient ...

Alfredo Navarro De Andrade Agree regarding composition of crude protein. However, genetic expression leading to varying amounts of the different proteins found in soyabeans IS influenced by growing conditions as well as strain; therefore there are differences, as we see clearly in our data from AminoDat. I doubt, though, that "organic" growing will have a significant effect on AA composition; and ...

First, may I politely ask you to give credit to Evonik and properly reference the fact that the "conventional" soya data you quote comes from our AminoDat 5.0 raw material database. Your amino acid values are IDENTICAL to those quoted in this data base and so reference should be noted. You give no data in your paper regarding number of samples in your survey. The AminoDat values are based on 1241 ...
