The effects of rapeseed meal on the growth, feed intake, feed utilization and carcase characteristics of grower finisher pigs

The effects of rapeseed meal on the growth, feed intake, feed utilization and carcase characteristics of grower finisher pigs

Australian Journal of Experimental Agriculture and Animal Husbandry 13(63): 375-382

In each of 2 experiments 64 female and castrated male pigs were rationed or fed to appetite on diets with no rapeseed meal or with it to replace 25, 50, 75 or 100% of the meat meal on a protein basis, and which had no lysine hydrochloride or 0.3%. On restricted feeding, 50% of the protein as rapeseed meal had no effect on gain but 100% reduced gain between 20 and 80 kg liveweight. With feeding to appetite all amounts of rapeseed meal reduced gain.
