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


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