Abstract

Deoiled herring silage contained an average of 17.6% dry matter (DM) and per 100 g DM: 1.86 MJ GE, 12.1 g N, 5.5 g available lysine and 3.7 g oil. The apparent digestibility coefficients for growing pigs of gross energy (GE) and nitrogen (N) for a diet containing 25% herring silage DM and 75% barley meal DM were 0.83 and 0.91, and the efficiency of retention for digested N was 0.42. The digestible energy (DE) value for the deoiled herring silage was 17.9 MJ DE/kg DM and the digestible nitrogen (DN) value was 119 g DN/kg DM.
