Economic Model for Optimum Tryptophan:Lysine Ratio for Nursery and Finishing Pigs

20 May 2016, at 12:00am

This tool, developed by Kansas State University and Ajinomoto Heartland, calculates the most economical Standardized Ileal Digestible (SID) Tryptophan (Trp) to Lysine (Lys) ratio by taking into account information specific to your production system and market price.

The underlying models were developed using PIC genetics under commercial conditions. The tool also takes into account if the production system is marketing pigs on a fixed time versus a fixed weight basis and the impact of different SID Trp:Lys to maximize profitability.
