A study was conducted to determine the effect of particle size of distillers dried grains with solubles (DDGS) on DE and ME content, diet DM, energy, N, P digestibility, and diet flowability for growing pigs. One DDGS source was processed through an Urshel Commitrol mill or a hammer mill to achieve mean particle sizes of 818, 595, and 308 μm. The basal(More)
BACKGROUND Cohorts that will attain age 60 after 2010 in the Latin American and Caribbean region (LAC) are beneficiaries of a massive mortality decline that began as early as 1930. The bulk of this decline is due to diffusion of low-cost medical technology that improved recovery rates from infectious diseases. This changes the composition of elderly cohorts(More)

Two experiments were conducted to evaluate the effects of feeding continuously a diet containing 40% dried distillers grains with solubles (DDGS) or intermittently diets containing 20 or 40% DDGS on growth performance and carcass quality of pigs. Responses of the pigs to abrupt introduction and removal of dietary DDGS with differing concentrations of(More)
Typically, β-glucans (BG) and mannan oligosaccharides (MOS) can be found in the bran of cereal grains, yeast cell walls, plant cellulose, and in many types of fungi and bacteria. Furthermore, both BG and MOS are known to exhibit beneficial health properties. The objective of this study was to determine the concentrations of BG and MOS in corn dried(More)
