True ileal digestible threonine in growing and finishing pigs
Optimizing the nutrition is a permanent goal in the production of pigs. A group from Germany evaluated the requirement of true ileal digestible threonine of growing and finishing pis - very important and very interesting.

Ninety-six crossbred barrows and gilts were used to investigate the optimum supply of true ileal digestible threonine for growing (approximately 35-65 kg body weight) and finishing (approximately 65-110 kg body weight) pigs.

For this purpose, according to a bifactorial arrangement in the grower as well as in the finisher phase four dietary threonine levels were combined with two dietary levels of lysine.

Measurement criteria were body weight gain, feed intake, feed conversion rate and carcass characteristics. In the grower stage at the lower lysine level daily gain increased numerically (p < 0.1) and the feed to gain ratio decreased significantly with an increasing dietary true ileal digestible threonine concentration. Increasing the true ileal digestible lysine concentration of the diet from 7.8 to 9.2 g/kg increased average daily gain in the grower stage significantly from 815 to 855 g and decreased the feed to gain ratio significantly.

In finishing pigs, daily gain and feed to gain ratio were significantly improved by an increasing dietary true ileal digestible threonine concentration from 821 to 902 g and from 3.14 to 2.94 kg/kg, respectively, but not by the differing lysine supply. As in the grower stage, barrows consumed more feed than gilts at similar growth rates and this resulted in a significantly reduced feed to gain ratio in gilts compared with barrows.

The requirements of true ileal digestible threonine for optimize both, daily gain and feed to gain ratio, as derived by the broken-line model were 10.3 g/animal and day for growing and 10.7 g/animal and day for finishing pigs 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.
