Diets containing 14, 16, 18 or 20% crude protein (CP) were each given to 4 castrated male and 4 female Large White X Landrace pigs (56 days old, mean liveweight 9.0 kg). Lysine, methionine + cystine and tryptophan contents of all diets were adjusted to 1.10, 0.66 and 0.21% of air dry feed, respectively, by addition of synthetic amino acids. Liveweight gain was affected by CP content and sex.
