Abstract

Residual feed intake (RFI) is a measure of feed efficiency that reflects differences in the efficiency of the use of feed for maintenance and growth. The consequences of genetic selection for RFI on intestinal nutrient digestion capacity, particularly during immune system stimulation (ISS), are poorly documented. Our objective was to evaluate the impact of ISS and genetic selection for RFI on apparent ileal digestibility (AID) of nutrients, and intestinal nutrient transport and barrier function.
