DR. WOODWORTH'S KANSAS STATE SWINE TRIAL WHITE PAPER
Summarized by Dr. Janeth Colina
Swine production helps to ensure food security by supplying pork as the global demand continues to grow. Pigs are the main protein source for millions of people across numerous, different cultures and geographical regions. In 2021, there were over 700 million pigs worldwide, increasing from around 654 million heads in the previous year1. In fact, it has been reported a global pork production forecast to be higher in 2021 due to recovery from both swine (African Swine Fever) and human viral outbreaks (COVID-19)2. This is aligned with increasing pork consumption. Furthermore, pig meat is the most commonly consumed meat across the world, with about one-third of total meat consumed in the world, ahead of beef and chicken3.

Dr. Janeth Colina Rivero reviewed information from the Kansas State University swine feeding Trial done by Dr. Jason Woodworth and Dr. Rodriguez relating to swine growth based on feed intake. This study was conducted using ExPress® Soybean Meal and Solvent Extracted Soybean Meal as a comparative.
