The present study was conducted to test the hypothesis that dietary arginine supplementation may improve meat quality of finishing pigs. Beginning at ~60 kg body weight, pigs were fed a corn- and soybean meal-based diet supplemented with 0, 0.5 or 1% l-arginine until they reached a body weight of ~110 kg. On the last day of the experiment, pigs were(More)
Suboptimal embryonic/fetal survival and growth remains a significant problem in mammals. Using a swine model, we tested the hypothesis that dietary l-arginine supplementation during gestation may improve pregnancy outcomes through enhancing placental growth and modulating hormonal secretions. Gestating pigs (Yorkshire × Landrace, n = 108) were assigned(More)
This study was conducted to investigate the effects of dietary selenomethionine (Se-Met) supplementation on growth performance, meat quality and antioxidant property in male broilers. A total of 800 43-day-old Lingnan yellow male broilers were randomly allotted to 5 dietary treatments with four replicates of 40 birds for a period of 3 weeks ad libitum.(More)
This study investigated the effect of oxidized soybean oil in the diet of young chickens on growth performance and intestinal oxidative stress, and indices of intestinal immune function. Corn-soybean-based diets containing 2% mixtures of fresh and oxidized soybean oil provided 6 levels (0.15, 1.01, 3.14, 4.95, 7.05, and 8.97 meqO2/kg) of peroxide value(More)
