Net portal flux (a), net hepatic flux (b), and hepatic extraction (c) of lysine in sows during late gestation and in early and peak lactation. Influences of DIM were observed for net portal (P < 0.001), net hepatic (P = 0.12) fluxes, and hepatic extraction (P < 0.001) of lysine, respectively. Influences of time after feeding were observed for net portal (P < 0.001), net hepatic (P < 0.001) fluxes, and hepatic extraction (P = 0.008) of lysine, respectively. Interactions between time after feeding and DIM were observed for net portal (P = 0.02), net hepatic (P = 0.09), and hepatic extraction (P = 0.09) fluxes of lysine, respectively. DIM, days in milk
