Pigs in a commercial environment are consistently exposed to (sub) clinical infections and stressors, and systemic responses to such challenges significantly reduce the growth potential of modern pigs.

Lupins in pig diets: competent alternative to soybean meal (2/2)
Hulls and kernels of Australian sweet lupins are durable and hard to break, which means without reasonable mechanical grinding nutrients in lupins would not be digested and absorbed efficiently.
