Protein and lipid accretion in body components of growing pigs : effects of body weight and nutrient intake
In pig production, optimization of the conversion of animal feeding-stuffs into body components, especially lean meat, requires knowledge of the response relationships between nutrient intake andExpand

The effect of dietary protein and fermentable carbohydrates levels on growth performance and intestinal characteristics in newly weaned piglets.
Reducing the CP content and increasing the fermentable carbohydrates (FC) content of the diet may counteract the negative effects of protein fermentation in newly weaned piglets fed high-CP diets. ToExpand

Protein and lipid accretion in body components of growing gilts (20 to 45 kilograms) as affected by energy intake.
Twenty-eight commercial hybrid gilts with a high genetic capacity for lean gain were used to determine the relationships between energy intake and tissue deposition and body composition between 20Expand

Effect of the ratio between essential and nonessential amino acids in the diet on utilization of nitrogen and amino acids by growing pigs.
In 36 growing pigs (30 to 60 kg), N balance and amino acid (AA) composition of weight gain were measured to evaluate the interactive effect of the ratio between N from essential amino acids (EAA(N))Expand

Digestible lysine requirement of gilts with high genetic potential for lean gain, in relation to the level of energy intake.
One hundred gilts were used to determine the optimal ratio between ileal digestible lysine and digestible energy in the diet, and the effect of energy intake level on this optimal ratio for giltsExpand

Effect of dietary neutral detergent fiber on ileal digestibility and portal flux of nitrogen and amino acids and on nitrogen utilization in growing pigs.
Two experiments were conducted to determine the effects of dietary NDF on apparent ileal and fecal digestibility and portal flux of nitrogen (N) and amino acids, and on N retention in growing pigs.Expand
