Swine Nutrition and the Environment

Current areas of swine nutrition and environment research relate to identifying nutritional and pharmacological means of improving the efficiency and profitability of pork production while addressing the impact of odors and critical nutrients in the wastes produced. Recent research has included studies of:

  1. The interaction between dietary nutrients and vitamins and trace minerals in swine,
  2. the evaluation of alternative feed ingredients on growth performance,
  3. the effect of feed enzymes on nutrient availability and
  4. the effect of dietary fat source on carcass fatty acid profiles.
