Abstract It was hypothesised that decreasing dietary crude protein (CP) and including sugar beet pulp (SBP) would reduce the urine:faeces nitrogen (N) excretion ratio of finisher boars and decrease ammonia emissions from separated liquid and solid manure fractions. A 2 × 2 factorial experiment was conducted to investigate the effect of dietary CP concentration (150 g kg −1 vs. 200 g kg −1 ) and SBP (0 g kg −1 vs. 200 g kg −1 ) inclusion on nutrient digestibility, N excretion and manure output… CONTINUE READING
