Effect of Excessive Heat on Soybean Meal Quality
Collaborative research conducted at the University of Illinois and with a commercial company in Germany studied the effects of excessive heat on digestible energy (DE) and metabolizable (ME) and standardized ileal digestibility (SID) of amino...
Extrusion Processing of Feed Ingredients of Weaning Pigs
Two 28-d experiments were conducted to evaluate the effects of extrusion of ground yellow corn, solvent-extracted soybean meal (SBM), and cracked whole soybeans (CWS) individually or as corn-soybean product blends on growth performance of weanling...
Comparison of Lipid Sources for Young Pigs
An experiment was conducted to evaluate the impact of lipid source on gross energy (GE) and ether extract (EE) digestibility in nursery pigs fed diets containing 10% soybean oil (SO), choice white grease (CWG), palm...
Effects of Feeding Low-oligosaccharide Soybean Meal to Weanling Pigs
An experiment was conducted to investigate the effect of replacing conventional soybean meal (SBM) with low-oligosaccharide soybean meal (LOSBM) on pig performance and various physiological measurements. Thirty-two 19-day old pigs weighing about 6.2 kg were...
Soybean Meal’s Feeding Value Varies with Country of Origin
An experiment was conducted to compare nutritional composition, the apparent ileal digestibility (AID) and the standardized ileal digestibility (SID) of soybean meals (SBM) produced in various countries. Five sources of SBM from China, Argentina, Brazil,...
Effect of Particle Size on Soy Protein Concentrate Utilization
Two experiments were conducted to determine the standardized ileal digestibility (SID) of amino acids (AA) and the concentration of metabolizable energy (ME) in soy protein concentrate (SPC) ground to three particle sizes and in soybean...
Feeding Value of Vegetable Oils for Weaning Pigs
The feeding value of vegetable oils for weaning pigs studied a total of 210 pigs (PIC 327 × 1050, initially 13.1 kg BW and 46 days of age) were used in a 21-day trial to...
Fermented Soybean Meal Weaned Pig Diets
Research at South Dakota State University has previously shown that standard ileal digestibility (SID) values for fish meal and microbially-converted soybean meal (MCSBM) were similar. This study was designed to evaluate MCSBM as a replacement...
Comparing Canola Meal and Soybean Meal in Diets for Weaning Pigs
Canola meal (CM) was compared to soybean meal (SBM) in an experiment involving 240 pigs weaned at 18 days and weighing about 9.6 kg. The pigs were fed pelleted wheat-based diets containing either 20% SBM...
