Different slaughter weights and feeding levels for growing-finishing pigs



Different slaughter weights and feeding levels for growing-finishing pigs



Melding, Institutt for Husdyrernaering, Norges Landbrukshogskole (212): 24



During 1975 to 1978 in 3 trials pigs were fed according to B or M standards (Berg, N. (1976) Energibehoved hos slaktegriser. Melding Institutt for Hustyrernaering, NLH No. 180) and slaughtered at 90, 100, 110 or 120 kg liveweight. Pigs fed according to the M standard gained 40 g more daily than those fed according to the B standard. Carcasses had a higher fat content when the M standard was used; the increase in backfat thickness was on average 0.8 mm.
