A feed barley variety that allows hogs to use dietary phosphorus rather than lose it to manure will now need enough hog producers to use it so as to encourage more seed production.

CDC Lophy-I, developed at the University of Saskatchewan's Crop Development Centre, contains low levels of phytate. In other feed grains, phytate locks up dietary P, calcium and iron, among other minerals, rendering them unavailable for the animal's use and undigested in manure.
