Abstract
A total of 128 crossbred pigs with an average initial weight of 16 lb were fed on diets containing 0, 25, 50 or 100 g of bacitracin methylene disalicylate (BMD). Pig performance during the nursery period was not affected by dietary BMD. There was a slight improvement in performance of pigs fed on BMD during the grower period but the greatest response was during the finishing period when the pigs given BMD at 100 g/ton required significantly less feed per unit of body weight gain.
