Research Project: ENERGY UTILIZATION OF OIL EXTRACTED-DRIED DISTILLERS GRAINS WITH SOLUBLES (OE-DDGS) IN SWINE AND POULTRY Project Number: 5030-31000-004-31
Project Type: Trust

Start Date: Jun 07, 2011
End Date: Dec 31, 2012

Objective:
Quantify the impact of reducing oil in DDGS on the ME in growing pigs and poultry.

Approach:
1. Analyze four samples of OE-DDGS (10.5, 7.5, 5.5 and 4.5% oil, as-is basis) for CP, EE, starch, NDF, acid detergent fiber (ADF), total dietary fiber (TDF), ash, and minerals. 2. Conduct energy (DE and ME) digestibility study with pigs fed OE-DDGS. 3. Conduct energy (ME only) digestibility study with broilers fed OE-DDGS. 4. Correlate DE and ME for swine and ME for broilers to OE-DDGS composition. 5. Compare DE and ME to previously determined regression equations and data.
