Effect of space allowance and antibiotic feeding on performance of nursery pigs


, : Effect of space allowance and antibiotic feeding on performance of nursery pigs. Journal of Animal Science 58(4): 801-804

Pigs weaned at 3-6 wk of age at 9 experiment stations in the USA were fed 110 mg chlortetracycline, 110 mg sulphamethazine and 55 mg penicillin/kg of diet, or were given no antibiotics (controls) and were allowed 0.14 or 0.23 msuperscript 2 of floor space/pig. Treatments were replicated 45 times, using 1724 pigs. Pigs allowed 0.23 msuperscript 2, compared with 0.14 msuperscript 2, had 10.6% greater (P less than 0.01) rate of gain and 3.6% improved (P less than 0.05) feed conversion.

The objective of this study was to compare the economic performance of nursery systems based on large (100 pigs) or small (20 pigs) group sizes and two floor space allowances (adequate, 0.17 m2/pig or reduced, 0.15 m2/pig). A total of 1920 pigs we...
