Housing and feeding systems for sows and their reproductive traits. 4. Feeding level during lactation



Housing and feeding systems for sows and their reproductive traits. 4. Feeding level during lactation



Veterinarski Glasnik 39(11): 1179-1184



On 2 farms 246 sows were given a control feed to appetite or with 4% of maize replacing lard in the diet during lactation. Results were better in the experimental group. Interval between farrowings was 161.1 and 162.3 days in the control and experimental groups, respectively, and percentage of sows farrowing again was 86.1 and 84.7%.
