Comparative nutritive value of various ingredients in diets for growing pigs
Balanced feeding is extremely important in growing animals and because of economic reasons especially in pigs. In this study, energy and nutrient digestibility of cassava leaf meal (CLM), casein (CAS), fish meal (FM), full-fat soya bean (FFSB) and extracted soya bean meal (SBM) were investigated in 12 growing pigs.


The basal diet containing cassava root meal (CRM) and FFSB meal and the other five dietary treatments were evaluated with 12 crossbred castrated male pigs in a metabolism study covering three successive experimental periods between 40 and 60 kg body weight (BW).

Total tract digestibility of dry matter (DM), organic matter (OM) and gross energy (GE) of diets, generally increased significantly (p < 0.05) from CLM diet to FFSB and FM diets and finally to CAS and SBM diets, corresponding to a decrease in fibre content in the diets. Except for CAS diets, the pattern of acid detergent fibre (ADF) digestibility followed a similar trend.

Significantly higher ADF digestibility was recorded for soya bean diets while ADF digestibility value obtained for CLM diet was significantly lower.

The digestible energy values obtained for CAS, FM, FFSB, SBM and CLM were 22.2, 16.3, 17.5, 17.0 and 8.0 MJ/kg DM, respectively. Corresponding metabolizable energy values were 22.1, 15.6, 17.1, 16.3 and 7.6 MJ/kg DM, respectively.

Pasteurella multocida diversity in poultry and pigs in Australia
This recently published study investigates the genotype and diversity of Pasteurella multocida present in pig herds and determines the extent of overlap with isolates from poultry flocks in Australia. Do the isolates vary? A very interesting study not only for Australia.
