Predicting the digestible energy of corn determined with growing swine from nutrient composition and cross-species measurements

    The DE values of corn grain for pigs will differ among corn sources. More accurate prediction of DE may improve diet formulation and reduce diet cost. Corn grain sources (n = 83) were assayed with growing swine (20 kg) in DE experiments with total collection of feces, with 3-wk-old broiler chick in nitrogen- corrected apparent ME (AMEN) trials and with cecectomized adult roosters in nitrogen-corrected true ME (TMEN) studies.
