DDGS and Amino Acid Nutrition in Swine Diets

Swine, Webinars

Traditionally, swine producers and nutritionists have included DDGS at very conservative inclusions due to unfamiliarity with the ingredient. As the industry learns more about the nutritional value of DDGS, we now see swine producers increasing DDGS inclusion in their formulations for pigs at all stages of production. This strategy reduces feed costs, yet maintains pig performance at the same time.

Additionally, while many nutritionists have reported that they have increased DDGS inclusion, they also report on the need to adjust their formulation strategy for nutrients such as amino acids. It appears that at greater DDGS inclusions, we need to challenge some of the industry's current recommendations for certain nutrient requirements.

In order to start an interactive discussion on this relevant topic, POET Nutrition and Dakota Gold are pleased to sponsor this webinar. The webinar will include insights from University of Minnesota DDGS researcher Dr. Jerry Shurson and will provide webinar attendees with new strategies for including DDGS in their swine formulations.

Key Learning Points:

  • Optimal DDGS inclusion for swine diets
  • Amino acid considerations with greater DDGS inclusion
  • Economics of greater DDGS inclusions
  • Results from recent DDGS research
  • DDGS market updates

Panelists include Dr. Jerry Shurson with the University of Minnesota and Mr. Isaac Crawford, VP Trading and Merchandisiing with POET. Dr. Kevin Herrick, Technical Services Director of POET Nutrition serves as moderator
