Table 10 Title: calculation of energy values of pig feeds using in vitro organic matter digestibility [100]

From: Alternative prediction methods of protein and energy evaluation of pig feeds

Calculation of energy values of pig feeds  
1. Gross energy (GE, MJ/kg of dry matter)  
2. Digestible energy (DE, MJ/kg of dry matter)  
DE = (GE × 1.106 × DIN VITRO OM – 14.0)/100  
DIN VITRO OM: In vitro digestibility of organic matter expressed in %  
3. Metabolizable energy (ME, MJ/kg of dry matter)  
ME = DE – 0.17 × N  
N: Nitrogen content in feed expressed in % of dry matter  
4. Net energy (NE, MJ/kg of dry matter)  
NE = DE × 0.75 – 1.88
