Wrinkle: DDGS Effects on Swine Production

Swine

Research Summary

A recent meta-analysis of DDGS research provided new insights into swine performance. A team led by Dr. Jerry Shurson collected several references from the past 10 years and looked at swine performance as well as diet formulation. This summary provided an interesting background of previous research while at the same time, introduced guidelines for future DDGS research. Dr. Shurson's team found evidence which suggested that in order to optimize swine performance, we need to have accurate energy estimates for DDGS.

This report indicates we need to change formulation strategies for amino acids, and suggests we need to have accurate energy estimates for DDGS in order to optimize swine performance.
