Supplementing late gestation and lactation sow diets with lysolecithin – Swine abstracts


Through the years, sows have turn into extra prolific and produce massive, heavy litters with elevated every day good points and excessive necessities for power consumption from milk. Growing power and nutrient retention from feed is essential to take care of efficiency whereas maintaining feed prices cheap. The addition of digestive enzymes and emulsifiers throughout the feed of sows has additionally been used to help in digestion, absorption, and retention of fats and different vitamins. Lysolecithin is likely one of the most studied emulsifying brokers and its use can enhance power digestibility, retention and could possibly assist sows preserve situation and efficiency throughout lactation. The target of the current research was to judge the results of dietary supplementation of lysolecithin in sows’ diets over the past three weeks of the gestation interval and all through the lactation interval on efficiency and metabolic parameters. For that purpose, a complete of 60 sows had been allotted to 2 remedies: (a) management group: the sows had been fed commercially management diets; (b) lysolecithin group: the sows had been fed the management diets supplemented with 750 g/t of feed supplemented with lysolecithin.


Because of this, backfat was decrease within the lysolecithin group than the management group at finish of gestation and at weaning, whereas the management sows mobilized extra backfat between day 14 to weaning. Litter weight at weaning was larger within the lysolecithin group. Fasted glucose ranges at day 14 of lactation tended to be decrease within the lysolecithin group in comparison with the management. Urea concentrations had been larger within the lysolecithin group than within the management group at day 14. Lysolecithin supplemented sows in comparison with the management mobilized much less tissue throughout lactation to assist lactation calls for.


In conclusion, lysolecithin supplementation in sows resulted in improved litter weight at weaning with out an extreme catabolism of backfat tissue, most likely attributable to an environment friendly nutrient utilization.
