Comparative digestibility of dietary energy in growing pigs and adult sows



Comparative digestibility of dietary energy in growing pigs and adult sows



Journees de la Recherche Porcine en France 33: 211-220



Digestive utilization of nutrients and energy and DE and ME values of 77 diets were measured in 60-65 kg body weight growing pigs and adult sows. Diets were formulated to represent a range of chemical compositions as large as those found in most practical situations. The results show that the digestibility of energy or nutrients was higher in adult sows than in growing pigs (85 vs. 82% for energy).
