INTRODUCTIONCurrently, there is a major concern in the society with the use of antimicrobial agents in livestock feed, and such chemicals can be added to the feed as either therapeutic agents or performance enhancers. As enhancers, lower antimicrobial doses are used for longer periods, which can potentiate selection of resistant bacteria (Baurhoo et al., 2009). For this reason, a great pressu ...

INTRODUCTIONBesides genetic improvement, there are several factors that influence performance and carcass traits of pigs and among them is the amino acid requirement. To obtain high muscle protein deposition rate in pigs genetically improved it is necessary to determine the standardized ileal digestible lysine (SIDL) requirement to ensure the diets allow expression of their maximum genetic potenti ...

IntroductionThe β-agonist ractopamine (RAC) is a dietary ingredient used in diets for finishing pigs to redirect nutrients to protein accretion that would otherwise go to the synthesis and deposition of lipids, resulting in improved performance and carcass traits (DUNSHEA et al., 1993; SCHINCKEL et al., 2003). It is well established that Lys requirements for optimal performance and carcass tr ...
