Adding saturated fats to DDGS-based diets: Effects on pork fat quality

Jung Wook Lee, master's student in the Stein Monogastric Nutrition Lab, follows up on his research into the effects of added tallow, palm kernel oil, corn germ, and glycerol on growth performance and carcass characteristics of pigs fed DDGS-based diets. Lee also discusses whether dietary IVP values may be used to predict backfat IV and belly fat IV of pigs fed diets containing DDGS.
