Effects of dietary cellulose and pectin on nitrogen digestibility and utilization in growing pigs

Effects of dietary cellulose and pectin on nitrogen digestibility and utilization in growing pigs

Agriculture and Forestry Bulletin (Special issue): 128-130

Sixteen barrows of initial body weight 47 kg were allocated to a low-fibre, low-protein; low-fibre, high-protein; high-fibre, low-protein; or high-fibre, high-protein diet. The objectives were to estimate the effect of dietary protein and fibre on: partitioning of nitrogen in faeces; N digestibility and utilization; body composition. The inclusion of fermentable carbohydrates such as pectin and cellulose modified the route of N excretion.
