Supplementing corn-soybean meal diets with microbial phytase maximizes phytate phosphorus utilization by weanling pigs.

Abstract

Two experiments were conducted with crossbred weanling pigs to determine the optimal dietary supplement of Aspergillus niger phytase activity to a low-P, corn-soybean meal basal diet (BD). In Exp. 1, 50 pigs (7.61 +/- .56 kg BW) received the BD supplemented with 750, 1,050, 1,250, or 1,350 phytase units (PU)/g, or .21% P as mono-dibasic calcium phosphate… (More)
