ABSTRACT
Two groups of 6 castrated pigs, in which each animal weighed 44 kg and was equipped with a post-valvular T-caecum cannula, were given threonine-deficient and threonine-supplemented (0.1%) diets. As similar daily flows of N and threonine were found in the ileal digesta after feeding both diets, it is concluded that crystalline threonine added to cereal-based diets is entirely absorbed in the small intestine of pigs.
