Eduardo Beltranena

swine, poultry, feed processing, nutrition, production, research & extension

Dr. Beltranena earned his Ag Engineering degree majoring in Animal Science from the Instituto Tecnológico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey, Mexico. He then worked as manager of a 1200 sow farrow-to-finish, crops, and feedlot operation where he conducted field research trials. Eduardo also formed Cryogenico, a company that imported and distributed frozen swine semen and cattle embryos in Mexico. He completed his PhD in nutrition and reproduction interactions at the University of Alberta, Canada. Eduardo was feed mill nutritionist and product development lead at Calmar Feed Mill Ltd. in Alberta. Dr. Beltranena then joined the Prairie Swine Centre in Saskatchewan as Manager of External Research Services. Eduardo then worked for the Alberta Ministry of Agriculture as Monogastric Feed Research Scientist. His position was transferred to the University of Alberta where he added teaching swine production to his research program feeding novel grains, oilseeds, pulses, value-added processing, and effects of co-products on carcass, meat, egg quality, and environmental sustainability. Eduardo is also a private pilot with night and instrument ratings and aerobatic training. Currently, Dr. Beltranena is Assistant Professor and Extension Specialist at North Carolina State University, Raleigh, USA. His extension and research program at NCSU will focus on reducing piglet crushing by sows, dam mortality and retention in herds, feeding North Carolina’s feedstuffs and coproducts, precision feeding of lactating sows and hogs, reducing the nitrogen footprint of the pork industry, and the training needs of Spanish speaking workers in North Carolina’s barns.

TL;DR: Canola meal (CM) contains less crude protein (CP) and more fiber and anti-nutritional factors (ANF) such as glucosinolates than soybean meal (SBM), and consequently has a lower nutrient digestibility, and processing strategies that may increase the feeding value of CM, warrant study.

Dry fractionation creates fractions of wheat distillers dried grains and solubles with highly digestible nutrient content for grower pigs1

Journal of Animal Science, 92(8), 3416–3425.

By: J. Yáñez*, E. Beltranena* & R. Zijlstra*

TL;DR: Dry fractionation creates DDGS fractions with a differing chemical composition; fine particle fractions contain less fiber and more CP than coarse particle fractions, but their AA digestibility was lower, likely due to most of the solubles being fine particles that are more susceptible to AA damage than protein entrapped in particles of larger size.

By: M. Smit*, R. Seneviratne*, M. Young, G. Lanz, R. Zijlstra* & E. Beltranena*

TL;DR: Feeding growing-finishing pigs a diet with 300 vs. 200 or 100 g/kg CM with up to 200g/kg of wheat DDGS resulted in decreased weight gain and a minor decrease in carcass weight, dressing and loin depth, but increased feed efficiency. (via Semantic Scholar)

TL;DR: The FFGC was a good source of dietary energy and AA, however, increasing dietary FFGC inclusion for pigs reduced G:F and dressing percentage likely because of the increased dietary fiber content, resulting from increasing FFGC and barley and reducing wheat, soybean meal, and tallow in diets.
