Dietary plasma protein is used more efficiently than extruded soy protein for lean tissue growth in early-weaned pigs.

Abstract

We compared the effects of supplementing either animal plasma or extruded soy protein in the diet based on the efficiency of dietary protein utilization for lean tissue growth in early-weaned pigs. Twenty-four 14-d-old pigs (4 kg body weight) were pair-fed (per kg body weight) either a control diet containing extruded soy protein (C; n = 12) or a diet with… (More)
