In an experiment with 63 female pigs from 25 kg until slaughter at 100 kg liveweight, pelleted diets based on maize and soya bean oilmeal were given to appetite. The addition of 6.5% vermiculite reduced the digestibility of organic matter by 0.25%, energy 0.28% and nitrogen 0.76% for each 1% of dietary vermiculite.
