This study was conducted to investigate effects of different levels of seleniferous whole crop barley (WCB) supplementation on performance, and blood characteristics as physiological responses in growing pigs. A total of 20 cross-bred pigs ((Landrace ${\times}$ Yorkshire) ${\times}$ Duroc) were divided into 4 treatments of 5 pigs each and experimental period lasted for 6 weeks. They were fed diets containing 0.1 (non-seleniferous WCB as controls), 0.2, 0.4, and 0.6 mg/kg levels of selenium (Se) by supplementing seleniferous WCB, and non-seleniferous or seleniferous WCB was formulated to 5% level in total ration. The diets were isonitrogenous (18% crude protein) and isocaloric (3,500 kcal/kg digestible energy) across treatments. Increasing levels of seleniferous WCB supplements did not affect feed intake and BW gain, and blood total protein concentration was (p<0.05) significantly higher for 0.2 mg/kg Se treatments than for controls. On d 14, blood albumin concentration was higher (p<0.05) for seleniferous WCB supplemented groups than for control group. Contrarily, blood glucose concentration was tended to be higher for controls than for seleniferous WCB groups. Blood total lipid concentration was significantly (p<0.05) lowered with increasing levels of seleniferous WCB. Serum glutamic-oxaloacetic transaminase and glutamic-pyruvic transaminase did not have any difference among treatments. It was tended that blood total cholesterol and triglyceride were lowered with increasing levels of seleniferous WCB. Blood Se concentration was significantly (p<0.05) increased with increasing levels of seleniferous WCB. The results indicate that Se present in seleniferous WCB had favorable effects on blood characteristics and blood Se increased by supplementing seleniferous WCB implies not only a good intestinal absorption of Se present in WCB but also the possibility of Se transfer into tissues.

연구는 다양한 배합수준의 셀레늄 함유 청보리 사료를 육성돈에 급여 시 육성돈의 성장특성 및 혈액성상에 미치는 영향을 조사하였다. 시험은 육성돈 20두를 공시하였고, 처리구는 셀레늄수준에 따라 4처리구(0.1 ppm (대조구), 0.2 ppm, 0.4 ppm, 0.6 ppm)로 나누어 처리구당 5두씩 배치하여, 6주간 사양시험을 실시하였다. 각 시험사료는 셀레늄 함유 및 일반 청보리를 조합하여 배합비의 5%를 첨가하였고, 조단백질 및 대사에너지 함량은 각 18% 및 3,500 kcal/kg을 함유하도록 배합하였다. 실험 사료 내에 셀레늄의 함유 수준을 증가하였을 때 사료섭취량과 증체에 영향을 미치지 않았고, 혈중 총단백질 농도는 0.2 ppm 급여구가 대조구보다 유의하게 높았다(p<0.05). 사양 연구 14일에 혈중 알부민농도는 셀레늄 함유청보리 급여구가 대조구보다 유의하게 높았다(p<0.05). 혈중 포도당 농도는 대조구가 셀레늄함유 청보리 급여구보다 높은 경향이었다. 혈중 총지질 농도는 사료 내 셀레늄 함량이 증가함에 따라 유의하게 낮았다(p<0.05). SGOT 및 SGPT는 대조구와 셀레늄 함유 청보리 급여구간에 차이가 없었다. 혈중 총콜레스테롤과 중성지방은 셀레늄 청보리 급여로 낮아지는 경향이었다. 혈중 셀레늄 농도는 셀레늄 함유 청보리 급여수준이 증가함에 따라 유의하게 증가하였다(p<0.05). 이상의 결과에서 청보리 내 존재하는 셀레늄은 육성돈의 혈액성상을 개선시키고, 셀레늄 함유 청보리의 급여로 증가된 혈중셀레늄 농도는 돼지 장관 내 청보리 내 셀레늄 이용효율이 우수할 뿐만 아니라 조직 내 셀레늄 전이 가능성을 시사한다.
