Abstract

Significant variation has been shown to exist between the digestible energy content of barley cultivars fed to growing pigs (1 ), but due to extensive fermentation in the hind gut, digestible energy measurements may be underestimating the net energy contributions to the animal. To demonstrate the influence of hind gut fermentation on energy digestion in the pig, the ileal diet digestible energy (IDE) and faecal diet digestible energy (FDE) content of diets containing Australian barley cultivars were compared.
