A study was conducted to evaluate the effects of social familiarity and initial BW variation at mixing on performance and welfare of pigs born to group-housed lactating sows. A total of 180 pigs from 24 litters were used in a random design with 4 treatments in a 2 x 2 (social familiarity x initial BW uniformity) factorial arrangement. Pigs were born in(More)
Currently, the recommended maximum inclusion rate of distiller's dried grains with solubles (DDGS) in grow-finish swine diets is 10%. However, previous studies conducted at the University of Minnesota have shown that DDGS produced from new ethanol plants in the MN-SD region has higher nutrient levels and digestibility than reported in NRC (1998). Therefore,(More)
Two studies were conducted to assess the energy content of low-solubles distillers dried grains (LS-DDG) and their effects on growth performance, carcass characteristics, and pork fat quality in grow-finish pigs. In Exp. 1, 24 barrows (Yorkshire-Landrace × Duroc; 80 to 90 d of age) in 2 successive periods were assigned to 1 of 6 dietary treatments. In(More)
An experiment was conducted to evaluate the effect of dietary crude glycerol in lactating sow diets on sow and litter performance under heat stress conditions. Mixed parity (range = 0 to 13) sows (n = 345; 253 +/- 24 kg of BW) were assigned randomly within gestation housing location and parity to 1 of 4 dietary treatments. Treatments consisted of a(More)
Some sources of DDGS contain relatively high amounts of oxidized lipids produced from PUFA peroxidation during the production process. These oxidized lipids may negatively affect growth performance and metabolic oxidation status of pigs. The objective of this study was to understand the effects of feeding corn-soybean meal diets (CON) or diets containing(More)
Crossbred pigs (n = 216; BW = 31.3 ± 1.8 kg) were used to determine the effects of long- and short-term feeding of crude glycerol on growth performance, carcass traits, and pork quality of grow-finish pigs. Pigs were blocked by initial BW, and pens within blocks were assigned randomly to 1 of 3 dietary treatments (24 pens; 9 pigs/pen). Dietary treatments(More)
Values for the concentration of standardized ileal digestible (SID) CP, Lys, Met, Thr, and Trp from 34 sources of distillers dried grains with solubles (DDGS) were obtained from a series of 5 experiments with the objective of predicting the concentration of SID AA from physical and chemical assays. The concentration of NDF, ADF, hemicellulose, acid(More)
