The amino acid composition of the body components (carcass, hair, whole blood, and a composite of the other body tissues) were determined from a total of 81 crossbred pigs at 10 weight intervals from birth to 145 kg body weight. Body component amino acid compositions (g/100 g protein) were multiplied by their respective protein contents, resulting in calculated whole-body amino acid compositions. From 8.5 to 145 kg body weight, the amino acid compositions were similar within each body component… CONTINUE READING
