Digestibility of energy and dietary fiber by growing pigs in corn- or sorghum-based diets without or with microbial enzymes

Dr. Maryane Oliveira, a postdoctoral research associate in the Stein Monogastric Nutrition Lab, presents the results of a study in which xylanase and cellulase were added to corn- and sorghum-based diets fed to growing pigs to determine their effects on fiber digestibility, ATTD of gross energy, and metabolizable energy.
