    Effects of copper hydroxychloride on growth performance and abundance of genes involved in lipid metabolism of growing pigs

    Effects of copper hydroxychloride on growth performance and abundance of genes involved in lipid metabolism of growing pigs

    Dr. Charmaine Espinosa, a post-doctoral research fellow in the Stein Monogastric Nutrition Lab, discusses the results of a study conducted to test the hypothesis that supplementation of copper hydroxychloride at 150 mg/kg to diets improves growth performance by upregulating the mRNA transcription of genes involved in post-absorptive metabolism of lipids. Adapted from a presentation at the 2020 ASAS Midwestern Section meeting, Omaha, NE, March 2-4.

    Effects of copper hydroxychloride & DDGS on nutrient digestibility, intestinal microbial protein in pigs

    Effects of copper hydroxychloride & DDGS on nutrient digestibility, intestinal microbial protein in pigs

    Dr. Charmaine Espinosa, a post-doctoral research fellow in the Stein Monogastric Nutrition Lab, discusses her research into the interactive effects of dietary copper and fiber on intestinal microbial protein concentration and digestibility of energy, crude protein, and fat by growing pigs fed diets containing distillers dried grains with solubles (DDGS). Adapted from a presentation at the 2020 ASAS Midwestern Section meeting, Omaha, NE, March 2-4.

    Digestibility of amino acids and concentrations of ME and NE are greater in soybean expellers than in soybean meal when fed to growing pigs

    Digestibility of amino acids and concentrations of ME and NE are greater in soybean expellers than in soybean meal when fed to growing pigs

    Diego Rodriguez, a research specialist in the Stein Monogastric Nutrition Laboratory, presents the results of two experiments designed to compare digestibility of amino acids and concentrations of metabolizable and net energy in two soybean products: 1) soybean expeller produced using a high-shear dry extrusion process prior to pressing; and 2) conventional solvent-extracted soybean meal. Adapted from a presentation at the 2020 ASAS Midwestern Section meeting, Omaha, NE, March 2-4.

    Digestible and metabolizable energy in soybean meal sourced from different countries and fed to pigs

    Digestible and metabolizable energy in soybean meal sourced from different countries and fed to pigs

    Vanessa Lagos, a Ph. D. candidate in the Stein Monogastric Nutrition Lab, discusses the results of her study that compared the digestible and metabolizable energy content of 23 sources of soybean meal from Argentina, Brazil, China, India, and the United States. Adapted from a presentation at the 6th EAAP International Symposium on Energy and Protein Metabolism and Nutrition, September 9–12, 2019 in Belo Horizonte, MG, Brazil.
