1. Obtain three samples of OE-DDGS and analyze for crude protein, ether extract, starch, fiber, ash, and minerals. 2. Conduct DE and ME digestibility study with pigs fed the three OE-DDGS sources and compare the determined DE and ME values to predicted values using a prediction equation generated from a previous experiment. 3. Feed the three samples of OE-DDGS to growing pigs for 28 days and determine NE of each OE-DDGS source utilizing the whole body composition technique.
