The nutritive value of soybean meal (SBM) in piglets can be increased through bacterial fermentation as antinutritional factors, such as antigenic proteins, that pose challenges while weaning are degraded. Bacillus subtilis BS9 and B5 ferment SBM with high efficiencies, decreasing antigenic high-molecular weight proteins and increasing soluble proteins, under conditions that reduce fermentation costs. In early weaning piglets, BS9 fermented SBM meal did not improve the ADG, ADFI, and FCR from day 1-14, however, FCR improved significantly from day 15-28.

Pawanpreet Sing's MSc Defence

Due to the increasing global demand for dietary protein, it is necessary to investigate protein alternatives with regard to both meeting nutritional requirements and environmental impact. Pulse ingredients are an attractive protein alternative used in grain-free or plant-based canine diets. However, in recent years pulses have been speculated to be associated with dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) in dogs. Therefore, this thesis aimed to investigate the effects of incremental pulse inclusion from 0 to 45% in micro and macronutrient balanced diets on canine cardiac and metabolic health.
