  1. a - ETEC K88 = infusing the phosphate buffer saline; + ETEC K88 = infusing the ETEC K88; - FSBM = control diet with 24% soybean meal; + FSBM = test diet with 6% FSBM added at the expense of soybean meal
  2. b Premix supplied per kg diet: vitamin A, 12,000 IU; vitamin D3, 2,500 IU; vitamin E, 30 IU; vitamin K3, 3 mg; vitamin B12, 0.012 mg; niacin, 40 mg; pantothenic acid, 15.0 mg; choline chloride, 400 mg; Zn, 80 mg; Mn, 30 mg; Fe, 90 mg; Cu, 10 mg; I, 0.35 mg; Se, 0.30 mg
  3. c Crude protein, calcium, and phosphorus were analyzed values, digestible energy and SID of amino acids were calculated values. The SID of amino acids and digestible energy values used for SBM and FSBM were obtained from Wang et al. (2014b), whereas those values for fishmeal and whey powder were obtained from the National Research Council (2012)
  4. SID Standardized ileal digestibility
