Fermentation in the large gut and swine dysentery
Siba, P.M., Pethick, D.W., Pluske, J.R., Mullan, B.P. and Hampson, D.J. (1995) Fermentation in the large gut and swine dysentery. In: Manipulating Pig Production V. Proceedings of the sixth biennial conference of the Australasian Pig Science Association (APSA), 26 - 29 November, Canberra, Australia p. 170.
In this experiment, the efficacy of a variety of grains to control SD was tested. Grains were fed either "raw" or after steam-flaking for 20 min at 150°C, "cooked". Steam-flaking is likely to increase digestibility in the small intestine causing a lower volume of nutrients to be available in the large intestine for microbial fermentation. This environment may be less favourable for the colonisation and proliferation of S. hyodysenteriae.
