To quantify the utilization of ME by growing pigs, a factorial analysis method is often used in which the ME intake is regressed on protein (PD) and lipid deposition (LD) rates. The approach has been criticized because there often is a strong correlation between PD and LD, which makes accurate estimation of model parameters difficult. The current study describes a nonlinear multivariate analysis procedure in which PD and LD are the result of variation in ME intake. The approach requires a… CONTINUE READING
