The article presents a study on the efficiency of using the fat-free lean data in predicting carcass lean composition and carcass value in the U.S. The study has evaluated the accuracy of the equations using the residual standard deviation (RSD) for FFL percentages with smaller RSD. The FFL is important in estimating the daily lysine and essential amino acid requirements given by the National Research Council (NRC) state and national swine nutrition guides.

    The primary objective of this experiment was to determine the effects of heat treatment on the standardized ileal digestibility (SID) of amino acids (AA) in corn distillers dried grains with solubles (DDGS) fed to growing pigs. The second objective was to develop regression equations that may be...

    The article focuses on the diet alternative formulation of swines for improved feed efficiency of hog producers in the U.S. It is accounted that due to price increase, swine formulation could center on a corn-soy diet instead of using the L-Lysine diet in swine's rations. Another alternative...
