forages, alternative ingredients, gut health.
Objective: To establish the feasibility and benefits of implementing high-fiber diets for pigs.
Design/Methodology: A literature review of the practical application of pig diets with the inclusion of fibrous ingredients was carried out.
Results: The formulation of high-fiber diets for pigs maintains or improves productive performance and provides additional gut health benefits.
Study Limitations/Implications: Lack of information about the net energy and amino acid digestibility values of fibrous ingredients limits the proper formulation of pig diets.
Findings/Conclusions: The inclusion of high-fiber ingredients in pig diets can partially replace traditional ingredients, consequently reducing costs and providing health benefits.
