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)
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)
Since 1999 the biodiesel industry has increased exponentially. As a result, the production of crude glycerol, the co-product of biodiesel, has also increased. Two-hundred sixteen crossbred pigs (body weight = 69 + 3.9 lb) were used to determine the effects of long-term (LT) and short-term (ST) feeding of glycerol on growth performance, carcass traits, and(More)
