Improving performance of finishing pigs with supplemental Val, Ile, and Trp: Validating a meta-analysis model
Branched-chain amino acids (BCAA) are a collective group of amino acids (AA) made up of Leucine (Leu), Valine (Val), and Isoleucine (Ile). These three AA all share the first steps of catabolism, and...
