Emerging bacterial resistance to antibiotics increases the need for effective alternatives to control intestinal inflammation and thus gut disorders in piglets. This study evaluated the effects of including Saccharomyces cerevisiae (strain 1026) and Saccharomyces boulardii (CNCM I-1079) as antibiotic alternatives…

R.D.V. Robinson and B.D.H. van Niekerk Page: 105 - 109

Records kept over a 4-year period on a 300-sow Natal north coast farm show that reproductive efficiency in pigs is markedly depressed during the hottest months of the year. Under these conditions mean monthly temperatures in excess of 22 C…

V. Gevers & D. Wentzel Page: 18 - 19

A nitrogen-balance study was carried out to investigate the utilization of various levels of urea (0 - 4%) absorbed by alkali-ionophore-treated whole maize when fed to Angora goats receiving a protein-deficient roughage diet. Nitrogen retention was increased significantly (P<0,05) only…

Use of the mobile nylon bag technique to determine digestible energy in pig diets

  • 1989
  • Issue: 4
  • Volume: 19
T.S. Brand, H.A. Badenhorst, F.K. Siebrits, E.H. Kemm & J.P. Hayes Page: 165 - 170

The experiment was conducted to compare the mobile nylon bag technique (MNBT) with conventional digestibility techniques for the estimation of digestible energy (DE) in pig diets. Factors investigated were the effect of washing after retrieval, predigestion time, particle size, retention…
