Metabolizable Energy of Trait – Enhanced Soybean Meal in Grower – Finisher Swine

Energy is the most expensive component in livestock diets, so a SBM with more available energy may represent an economical advantage for the swine industry. This project estimated both digestible and metabolizable energy content of conventional and low oligosaccharide SBM for pigs. The determination of those values in low oligosaccharide SBM should facilitate its adoption in pig diets. Further, those energy values will be determined for both grower and finisher pigs.
