Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio Swine Nutrition Guide

By Tri-State Universities - This publication is intended to estimate the nutrient requirements of swine by considering the regional conditions within the tri-state area of Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio. In the discussion section of each production phase, we reviewed the various physiological, genetic, and environmental factors that can affect the pig's nutrient requirements.

Also included is a listing of feeds that are commonly available in this region, their compositions and nutrient availabilities when appropriate, and the effect that processing has on their feeding value. Factors that can affect the composition of the diet are identified in Figure 1.

After evaluating the pig's nutritional requirements and why the requirements change between each production phase, we focused on answering frequently asked questions by considering different management practices, types of facilities, genetics, production stages, and feed ingredients.

The swine nutritionists at each of the three universities (Michigan State University, The Ohio State University, and Purdue University) met several times to prepare this publication and then consulted with several industry and Extension specialists in the tri-state area for their critique.
