Protein digestion in weanling pigs: effect of feeding regimen and endogenous protein secretion.

Abstract

Protein digestion and absorption were measured in weanling pigs (5 wk of age) using a total digesta collection procedure. In the first experiment, the objective was to measure the fate of nitrogenous digesta as it passed from the stomach to the terminal ileum when pigs were either allowed ad libitum access to feed or were fed four equal meals per day.
