Dr Peter, thank you for your clarification. However, the question remains whether carnitine decreases oxidative stress, while also acting to increase CPU activity in heat.

For Rose, my point is that your work has shown that reducing crude protein in feed is not as simple as it may seem. This is because factors such as immune challenge and environmental stress, such as high temperature, are factors that alter the relationships of some essential amino acids with lysine, highlighting the dynamic character of the ideal protein. This detail reveals that in order to obtai ...

Congratulations on the article, considering the importance of the revised article. I take this to reaffirm some points that I mentioned earlier. Based on the information contained in this review, it can be perfectly deduced that, in practice, the reduction in feed crude protein, which is based on the ratio of essential amino acids to lysine, is the ideal protein for the animal category in question ...

The association of all the stressors related to early weaning of piglets results in reduction in daily feed intake, especially during the first week. The interruption of feed intake in this phase results in intestinal villous atrophy and increased crypt depth (Pierce et al, 2005).
According to Pinheiro & Machado (2007), the performance of piglets in the first week after weaning ...

Phosphorus (P) is an important mineral required in poultry diets for normal growth and development (Ankra-Badu et al., 2004). It constitutes the costliest mineral nutrient in animal nutrition and is the third most expensive component in non-ruminant diets, where the first two are energy and protein (Boling et al., 2000).
Countless studies have been focused on the P requirement for p ...

Dr Jannes has one more detail to consider with the use of lactose in piglet diets, which is the fact that lactose favors acidophilic microorganisms, acting as prebiotic. In the case of soybean fiber the effect is opposite, admittedly damaging the composition of the microbiota.

Dr. Allan, as far as I am aware, lactose digestibility decreases significantly after weaning. Thus high lactose level in the weaned piglet diet is used aiming its use as a fermentative substrate by the large intestine microbiota, preventing amino acids from being used as an energy source, with the consequent formation of undesirable products such as ammonia, biogenic amines, etc.

Obtaining satisfactory production rates as well as welfare of pigs depends on adequate energy and nutrient supply, and among these nutrients phosphorus has deserved special attention.
Phosphorus is a critical element for body protein accretion because of its involvement in the energy metabolism, synthesis of nucleic acids, and structure of cell membranes. Muscle tissue contains ...
