Title: Meeting the Protein and Amino Acid Needs of Swine
Author: Rea, John Cyrus
Keywords: grain protein ratios
swine feed requirements
synthetic amino acids
Date: 1982-08
Publisher: University of Missouri Extension
Abstract: All pigs require protein, which consists of amino acids. Amino acids are used for maintenance, growth, gestation, and lactation. Pigs actually do not have a protein requirement, but quality protein provides the amino acids which are required. While some amino acids are synthesized by the animal, the essential ones cannot be synthesized at a rapid enough rate to permit normal growth. These must be provided in the feed.
