The objective was to determine standardized ileal digestibility (SID) of crude protein (CP) and amino acids (AA) in cereal grains and various co-products fed to growing pigs.
Ten feed ingredients tested were barley (9.3% CP), lupin kernels (31.1% CP), and wheat (11.3% CP) as cereal grains, and 2 sources of corn gluten feed produced in China (21.6% CP) and Korea (24.6% CP), corn gluten meal (65.3% CP), lupin hulls (11.6% CP), rice bran (14.5% CP), soybean meal (44.8% CP), and wheat bran (15.4% CP) as co-products. Ten experimental diets were formulated to contain each ingredient as a sole source of N and an N-free diet was used to correct basal endogenous losses of CP and AA. All diets also contained 0.5% Cr2O3 as an indigestible index. A replicated 11 × 6 incomplete Latin square design with 11 dietary treatments, 6 periods, and 22 animals was employed. Twenty-two barrows with an initial body weight of 64.6 ± 4.9 kg were equipped with a T-cannula in the distal ileum. An experimental period consisted of a 4-d adaptation period and a 2-d collection period.
The SID of CP in the barley, lupin kernels, wheat, 2 sources of corn gluten feed, corn gluten meal, lupin hulls, rice bran, soybean meal, and wheat bran were 84.7, 90.5, 90.4, 77.4, 74.6, 89.5, 90.4, 74.4, 86.9, and 63.4% [standard error of the mean (SEM) = 5.3, p=0.006], respectively. The respective SID values of Lys were 75.5, 88.4, 83.9, 74.7, 62.4, 80.3, 83.9, 78.5, 88.0, and 71.2% (SEM = 3.3, p<0.001), and the SID values of Met were 83.6, 88.7, 89.4, 85.7, 78.3, 88.9, 89.4, 85.3, 91.1, and 77.0% (SEM = 2.4, p<0.001), respectively.
The ileal digestibility of protein and amino acids varies among the feed ingredients fed to pigs.
