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.

Oral fluid and plasma oxytetracycline concentrations after i.m. administration in pigsmembers
The penetration of oxytetracycline (OTC) into the oral fluid and plasma of pigs and correlation between oral fluid and plasma were evaluated after a single intramuscular (i.m.) dose of 20 mg/kg body weight of long-acting formulation. An important study regarding one of the most popular long-acting antibiotics in pigs.
