Abstract
Two trials were conducted to test the effect of micronization (very fine grinding) of soya bean meal (SBM) and fullfat soya bean (FFSB) on productive performance and digestive traits of piglets. The experimental design was completely randomized with four treatments arranged factorially (SBM and FFSB, micronized and ground). The mean particle size (MPS) was 47 and 881 _m for the SBM and 41 and 778_m for the FFSB, micronized and ground, respectively. In trial 1 growth traits from 23 to 45 days of age and the coefficient of total tract apparent digestibility (CTTAD) of dietary components at 33 and 45 days of age were assessed. In trial 2 the coefficient of ileal apparent digestibility (CIAD) of dietary components, the pH of the gastro intestinal tract (GIT) and the weight of digestive organs and spleen were measured at 45 days of age. From 23 to 33 days of age pigs fed SBM grew faster (253 g/d versus 213 g/day; P<0.05) and were more efficient (0.87 g/g versus 0.98 g/g; P<0.01) than pigs fed FFSB. For the entire experiment (23¿45 days of age) pigs fed SBM tended to grow more (360 g/day versus 324 g/day) and to eat more feed (414 g/day versus 380 g/day) than pigs fed FFSB (P<0.10). The CTTAD of crude protein (0.798 g/kg versus 0.778 g/kg), organic matter (0.864 g/kg versus 0.839 g/kg) and gross energy (0.849 g/kg versus 0.830 g/kg) were higher for pigs fed SBM than for pigs fed FFSB (P<0.001). In addition, CIAD of organic matter (0.765 g/kg versus 0.705 g/kg) and gross energy (0.761 g/kg versus 0.711 g/kg) were higher for SBM than for FFSB diets (P<0.001). The pH of the different segments of the GIT was not affected by the protein source (P>0.10). Particle size did not affect any trait studied (P>0.10). The poor performance and digestibility of pigs fed FFSB as compared to pigs fed SBM might be related to the conditions applied during processing. It is concluded that pigs fed soya bean meal perform better than pigs fed FFSB and that micronization of the soya protein sources does not affect any trait studied.
