Effects of dietary chromium supplementation on performance, carcass characteristics, and meat quality of growing-finishing swine: A meta-analysis
|Kateg. publikace||Vědecké publikace impaktované|
Dietary Cr supplementation has potential to decrease fat and increase lean in carcasses of growing-finishing swine. However, effects of Cr supplementation on performance and economically important carcass and meat quality characteristics varied considerably among studies. To accommodate differences in methodology among studies, standardized effect sizes (Hedges´s g) were calculated for results from 31 studies, in which Cr was supplemented as complexes of Cr Met chelate, Cr nanocomposite, Cr nicotinate, Cr propionate, Cr tripicolinate, or Cr yeast in diets for growing-finishing swine. Summary statistics were calculated by frequentist fixed and random effects, and hierarchical Bayesian models. With characteristics related to carcass quality, observed heterogenity (P < 0.10) could not adequately be explained in a meta-regression by differences in initial BW and amount of Cr supplemented. Random effects and Bayesian models to summarize effect sizes for these characteristics showed similar results.
