Abstract
Pigs fed on a balanced diet with US No. 2 maize gained about 6% faster and required 15% less feed for unit weight gain than smaller pigs on diets with US No. 5 maize. The increase in feed conversion was worth about $1.65 during the 31-day growing phase of the study. When the US No. 5 was replaced by US No. 2 maize, performance of the 2 groups of pigs was similar which indicated that there was no harmful lasting effect when pigs were given US No. 5 maize for that period.
