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