Effects of copper hydroxychloride & DDGS on nutrient digestibility, intestinal microbial protein in pigs

Dr. Charmaine Espinosa, a post-doctoral research fellow in the Stein Monogastric Nutrition Lab, discusses her research into the interactive effects of dietary copper and fiber on intestinal microbial protein concentration and digestibility of energy, crude protein, and fat by growing pigs fed diets containing distillers dried grains with solubles (DDGS).
