The effect of diet during lactation on the reproductive performance of first-litter sows



The effect of diet during lactation on the reproductive performance of first-litter sows



Proceedings of the Australian Society of Animal Production 15: 412-415



Eighty first-litter sows in a commercial piggery were assigned to two feeding treatments during a 26-day lactation. A commercial diet containing an estimated 15% crude protein (CP), 0.65% lysine and 12.5 MJ digestible energy (DE)/kg was offered to sows in the control group which consumed 3.04 kg/day. Sows in the treatment group were given a higher-quality diet containing 16.4% CP, 0.83% lysine and 13.1 MJ DE/kg and they consumed 3.61 kg/day.
