Therefore, the present study was conducted to determine the influence of dietary RSM levels in swine diets on growth performance, blood profiles, nutrient digestibility and economic benefit of growing-finishing pigs.
The data from present experiment cannot be directly compared with the data from previous studies mentioned above because the data from present experiment was for sows rather than growing-finishing pigs.

Therefore, the purpose of this work was to evaluate the effects of Bacillus-based feed additive on growth performance, nutrient digestibility, fecal gas emission and microbial shedding, consumption of time and amount of water for cleaning the pens of the growing-finishing pigs and to evaluate the impact of feed additive on reducing environment pollution.
The results from the current study indicated that the variation in proportion of corn starch and dextrose in the experimental NFD did not affect the IEF of N and AA at the terminal ileum of growing-finishing pigs.
Therefore, the objective of the present study was to determine the SID for CP and AA in MM fed to growing-finishing pigs and to compare the digestibility values with those in soybean meal (SBM).
