The usage of fiber in swine diets has come a long way in the past 50 years. Throughout this time, we have been continuously learning more about how it can positively affect swine growth and what nutrients it can actually provide. In this episode, I talk with Dr. Marc Decoux about how fiber is used differently across the globe, how we can continue to learn more about all of the available types, and when it is most beneficial to include it in the diets of pigs.

“I have had conversations about fiber in the US that our team would never have had 50 years ago, so things are moving fast." - Dr. Marc Decoux
