Effects of fibre on nutrient digestion and time of passage in growing pigs



Effects of fibre on nutrient digestion and time of passage in growing pigs



Acta Agriculturae Scandinavica 37(3): 367-373



The present study on pigs was conducted to determine the time of passage and the apparent digestibility of the major chemical components of diets containing 0.0%, 5.4% and 11.0% dietary woodpulp. There were linear decreases in the digestibility of dry matter (r= -0.93), crude protein (r= -0.77), crude fibre (r= -0.73), nitrogen free extract (r= -0.92), ether extract (r= -0.50), crude ash (r= -0.81), acid detergent fibre (r= -0.80) and cell contents (r= -0.86) with increasing levels of dietary woodpulp. The mean retention time decreased linearly (r= -0.80) as the level of crude fibre in the diet increased. The excretion time of the markers was negatively correlated to the daily faecal dry matter output.
