Response of boars, barrows and gilts to supplemental lysine and problems relating to the use of boars for meat production



Response of boars, barrows and gilts to supplemental lysine and problems relating to the use of boars for meat production



Dissertation Abstracts International, B 37(7): 3167



Following an experiment on the effect of lysine on meat production, the potential of boars for meat production was investigated. Late castration, approx. 16 days prior to slaughter, effectively reduced sexual odour, with only a slight effect on performance and carcass composition. Cyproterone acetate, a synthetic steroidal anti-androgen, also reduced sexual odour to low levels, and did not influence performance or carcass composition.
