The objective of this course is to give graduate students an adequate background about digestive physiology, nutrition and feeding of swine.In addition, new subjects and advances in swine nutrition and feeding will be given to the students. Also, the students will be estimulate to develope their knoledges about interpretation and analysis of scientific research works. Statistical techniques for design and analysis of swine nutrition and feeding experiments will be given to the students.

1. Introduction: the impotance of swine production, the importance of nutrition and feeding in swine producction. 2. Gastrointestinal anatomy of pigs: mouth, pharynx, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, and liver and pancreas. 3. Digestion physiology: movement of food in the gatrointestinal tract, digestive enzimes, digestion of carbohydrates, proteins and lipids. 4. Nutrient absorption. 5. Study of nutrients: water, carbohidrates, lipids, proteins and aminoacids, minerals and vitamins. 6. Nutrient requirements of swine. 7. Nutrient deficiencies. 8. Study of feed ingredients: chemical composition, nutritive value and physical characteristics. 9. Formulation of swine diets. 10. Feedstuffs processing. 11. Swine feed additives: antihelmintics, antimiccrobial agents, copper, zinc, organic acids, antioxidants, nutrient repartitioning agents, etc. 12. Swine feeding management. 13. Feeding and nutrition techniques of swine experiments.
