Efforts to improve nutrient digestibility by the pigs can have effects on profitability of the pork industry (National Pork Board, 2012). Studies indicate that non-starch polysaccharides (NSP) in corn and soybean meal negatively affect nutrient digestibility (Moeser et al., 2002; van Kempen et al., 2006). Whole corn grain contains 27e32 g of xylose/kg (Knudsen, 1997) as arabinoxyl ...

Weaning removes young pigs from the passive immune protection they receive from the milk of the sow and increases their susceptibility to enterotoxigenic E. coli infection . Earlyweaned pigs often exhibit an underdeveloped immune system, digestive disorders and post-weaning diarrhea . Enterotoxigenic E. coli not only colonize the small intestine, but can also relé ...

Extremely high price of fish meal and whey protein concentrate increases overall cost of pork production. Because of advances in biotechnology, the use of supplemental amino acids in animal feeding are extended to Lys, Met, Thr, Trp, Val, Gln, and possibly Ile. Utilization of these essential amino acids as feed additives benefits swine industry by allowing nutritionists to use ...

The large and diverse microbial population contained in the mammalian gastrointestinal tract plays an important role in health and nutrient digestion1–3. The distal gut harbors the majority of human gut microorganisms, with approximately 1012 microbes per milliliter of luminal contents, and there are at least 500–1,000 species reside in the adult human intestine 4 ...

INTRODUCTIONSows are under nutritionally catabolic status during late gestation and lactation especially due to limited protein intake and increased needs for protein to support the growth of fetal tissues (McPherson et al., 2004), mammary parenchymal tissues (Kim et al., 1999; Ji et al., 2006), and milk synthesis (Revell et al., 1998; Jones and Stahly, 1999). The maternal catabolic conditio ...
