Effect of various levels of bird-resistant grain sorghum on the live performance and carcass characteristics of meat type swine



Effect of various levels of bird-resistant grain sorghum on the live performance and carcass characteristics of meat type swine



Tennessee Farm and Home Science (July/September): 24-27



Duroc pigs in 10 groups each of 2 barrows and 2 gilts were given diets in which a bird-resistant variety of grain sorghum, McNair 546, replaced no maize or 25, 50, 75% or all of it. The pigs were killed at about 220 lb liveweight. Digestibility was estimated in 6 other Duroc and 6 crossbred pigs given maize or grain sorghum or equal proportions of these.
