SCFA concentrations (mmol/kg wet digesta) measured in the caecum and colon of pigs fed diets with 0%, 5%, 10% and 15% levels of alfalfa meal (n = 6). a Total SCFA, b acetate, c propionate, and (d) butyrate. Values are presented as means (red line). a,bMean values with different letters differ (P < 0.05). Each pig sample has an individual symbol. Solid circle, hollow square, hollow circle, and hollow triangle represent pigs fed 0%, 5%, 10% and 15% level of alfalfa meal, respectively
