Final Validation of Reduced-oil DDGS Energy Prediction Equations for Swine and Widespread Industry Implementation

University of Minnesota/Gerald Shurson

The overall objective of this research project is to validate equations for prediction of the concentration of metabolizable energy among sources of reduced oil distillers dried grains with solubles (RO-DDGS). These well validated prediction equations will be available and can be utilized to accurately formulate diets for swine when including RO-DDGS. Availability of accurate formulation and diets will minimize current resistance among swine nutritionists when making a purchasing decision of RO-DDGS.
