Our Research

Research Bulletin 1
In a 4-week feeding trial, Dr. Sung Woo Kim of Texas Tech University, evaluated the efficacy of PepSoyGen as a protein source for 19 day-old weanling pigs.

Research Bulletin 2
A 5-week growth performance assay was conducted at South Dakota State University by Dr. Hans Stein to evaluate the efficacy of PepSoyGen as a protein source for 20 day-old weanling pig diets.

Research Bulletin 3
The results of this study showed that Aspergillus oryzae significantly changed the physical and nutritional characteristics of high protein soybean meal.

Research Bulletin 4
A trial was conducted at Kansas State University by Dr. Joel DeRouchey to evaluate the growth performance effects of using UltraPro+ in the diets of 15 to 25 lb. pigs.

Research Bulletin 5
A field study was conducted in South Dakota to evaluate the effects of including PepSoyGen in the diets of turkey poults from day 0-49 and Natufermen, direct-fed microbial from day 50 to 140 in a natural feeding program.

Research Bulletin 6
A preliminary 14-day growth performance assay was conducted at McNenny State Fish Hatchery in conjunction with Black Hills State University to evaluate the efficacy of Natufermen.

Research Bulletin 7
A 51-day growth performance assay was conducted at McNenny State Fish Hatchery in conjunction with Black Hills State University (Spearfish, South Dakota) to evaluate the efficacy of Natufermen.

Research Bulletin 8
A trial was conducted by C. K. Jones et al at Kansas State University to evaluate the effects of dietary UltraPro+ or fishmeal on of 15-pound pigs in a 28-day, phase 2 growth assay.

Research Bulletin 9
A 28-day trial conducted by B.J. Min et al at Dankook University, Cheonan, Korea evaluated the effects of replacing soy protein concentrate with PepSoyGen in the starter diet of pigs weaned at 21 days of age. A paper on this study was published in the Asian-Australasian Journal of Animal Science, vol. 22, 1: 99-106, January 2009.

Research Bulletin 10
A field evaluation was conducted by a major U.S. turkey producer to determine the effects of feeding Natufermen and PepSoyGen to growing turkeys.

Research Bulletin 11
The objective of this experiment was to determine the innate immune response of pigs acutely challenged with lipopolysaccharides as affected by dietary protein sources either from PepSoyGen or spray dried plasma protein when compared to a control soybean meal based diet.

Research Bulletin 12
A 49 day growth, diarrheal incidence, and immune response trial utilizing Holstein calves fed PepSoyGen was performed at the Dairy Science Division at the National Institute of Animal Science, Cheonan, South Korea.

Research Bulletin 13
Dr. Sung Woo Kim of North Carolina State University conducted two experiments to determine the efficacy of partial replacement of dried skim milk with PepSoyGen in the diets of weanling pigs.

Research Bulletin 14
An experiment was conducted by Dr. Sung Woo Kim of North Carolina State University, to determine the relative bioavailability of PepSoyGen to spray-dried porcine plasma.

Research Bulletin 16
A trial conducted at Cheonan Yonam College, Korea evaluated the growth effects of feeding the direct-fed microbial, Lactocare or DFM B on weanling and grower pigs.

Research Bulletin 17
An experiment conducted by S.W. Han et al at Chungnam National University, Daejeon, Korea evaluated the effects of feeding Aspergillus oryzae culture to laying hens.

Research Bulletin 18
Two experiments were conducted in 2010 by O.J. Rojas and H.H. Stein of the University of Illinois, to measure the apparent amino acid and phosphorus digestibility of PepSoyGen in weanling pigs.

Research Bulletin 19
Two experiments were conducted in 2004 at Dankook University, by B.J. Min et al, to evaluate the effects of feeding processed soy protein products on the growth performance and apparent amino acid ileal digestibility in weanling pigs.

Research Bulletin 20
Two trials were conducted by a major Canadian swine integrator, to evaluate the effects of including PepSoyGen in the diets of weanling pigs on post-weaning growth performance.

Research Bulletin 21
A forty-seven day trail was conducted by a major U.S. feed manufacture to test UltraPro+ on the growth performance and feed utilization of weanling pigs in a commercial setting.

Research Bulletin 22
The objective of this experiment was to quantify the effects of Natufermen supplementation (0.2%) on the gut integrity of growing broiler chicks challenged with a 10X dose of attenuated coccidial vaccine as a disease challenge or challenged by built-up litter (un-cleaned from previous two flocks).

Research Bulletin 23
A weanling pig trial was conducted at the University of Illinois by O. Rojas, to determine the effects on growth performance of replacing chicken meal, poultry by-product meal or fishmeal in the diets with PepSoyGen.

Research Bulletin 24
A seventy day trail was conducted at the McNenny State Fish Hatchery in South Dakota to test PepSoyGen replacement of fishmeal on the growth performance and feed utilization of juvenile rainbow trout.

Research Bulletin 25
An eight-week feeding trial conducted by Dr. Jesse Trushenski et. al. at Southern Illinois University, assessed production performance for juvenile striped bass. The effects of replacing dietary fishmeal with PepSoyGen or soybean meal were evaluated.

Research Bulletin 26
The objective of this experiment was to quantify the effects of Natufermen® supplementation (0.2%) on the gut integrity of growing broiler chicks challenged with a 10X dose of attenuated coccidial vaccine as a disease challenge or challenged by built-up litter (un-cleaned from previous two flocks).

Research Bulletin 27
A 36 day feeding trial conducted by Dr. Michael Barnes et. al. at McNenny State Fish Hatchery was assessed for juvenile rainbow trout. The effects of substituting Menhaden fish meal with PepSoyGen (PSG) with supplemental methionine and other essential amino acids were evaluated.

Research Bulletin 28
A forty-two day trail was conducted by CERZOO S.r.l. (San Bonico, Italy) to test the efficacy of PepSoyGen on growth performance parameters of weaned pigs when compared to a soybean meal control treatment.
