By-product Feed Ingredients for Use in Swine Diets

Feed costs comprise approximately 65-70% of the cost of pork production. While most U.S. producers think of strictly corn and soybean meal (SBM) when feeding pigs, they need to realize that pigs require amino acids, energy, vitamins and minerals, and not any particular feedstuff for normal growth. In most regions of the U.S., a corn–SBM combination is usually the least expensive ingredient ...

 · An important role is played by pH, dosage and exposure time. As a result of their binding properties, clays have been widely used in swine diets to improve pig performance when diets containing mycotoxins are fed [ 28, 29 ]. Clays have also been shown to prevent diarrhea in weaned pigs [ 2, 30, 31 ].
