The experiment was conducted to investigate the effects of different inclusion levels of extruded corn on growth performance, nutrient digestibility and short-chain fatty acids profiles in the hindgut of weaned piglets. Ninety weaning piglets (28 d of age; 8.21 +/- 0.69 kg BW) were allotted to one of five dietary treatments only substituted for unprocessed corn at varying levels (0, 1/4, 2/4, 3/4, 4/4) with extruded corn in a 28-d experiment. On day 28, 30 piglets were killed to measure concentrations and molar ratios of short-chain fatty acids in the hindgut. From day 0-14, digestibility of DM, N and GE was increased linearly and diarrhea frequency was decreased due to the increasing inclusion levels of extruded corn. From day 14-28, digestibility of GE and N was enhanced linearly due to the increasing proportion of extruded corn. On day 28, as proportion of extruded corn increased, the level of butyrate in the caecum and colon was increased linearly and the relative proportion of propionate was reduced. Results indicated that increasing proportions of extruded corn had no effect on growth performance, but significantly improved digestibility of N and energy at day 10 of trial and may be advantageous to the intestinal health of piglets.
