Effects of level and botanical origin of dietary fibre on digestive utilisation and rate of passage of digesta in growing pigs, finishing pigs and adult sows



Effects of level and botanical origin of dietary fibre on digestive utilisation and rate of passage of digesta in growing pigs, finishing pigs and adult sows



34emes Journees de la Recherche Porcine, sous l' egide de l' Association Franccaise de Zootechnie, Paris, France, 5-7 fevrier 2002: 75-80



The effects of level and origin of dietary fibre (DF) on digestive utilisation of energy and nutrients of diets and mean retention time of digesta (MRT) were studied in growing pigs (35 kg), finishing pigs (75 kg) and adult sows (250 kg). Four experimental diets were prepared: a low DF (10%) control (C) diet and three DF-rich (20%) diets which corresponded to a combination of diet C and maize bran (MB), wheat bran (diet WB), or sugar beet pulp (diet BP).
