Energy and amino acid digestibility of camelina cake fed to growing pigs – R.K. Kahindi, T.A. Woyengo, P.A. Thacker, and C.M. Nyachoti – Animal Feed Science and Technology – 2014

Summary: This experiment was conducted to determine the apparent and standardized ileal digestibility of crude protein (CP) and amino acids (AA), the digestible, metabolizable and calculated net energy values of screw-pressed camelina cake (SPCC) fed to growing pigs. In conclusion, SPCC has potential as an energy source given its remaining oil content, however, its digestibility coefficients for AA and CP were low, and could limit its utilization in swine diets.
