The effect of high environmental temperature on the protein and energy requirement of growing-finishing pigs. 1. The effect of dietary levels of protein and energy on the performance of pigs under ad lib. feeding



The effect of high environmental temperature on the protein and energy requirement of growing-finishing pigs. 1. The effect of dietary levels of protein and energy on the performance of pigs under ad lib. feeding



Journal of the Chinese Society of Animal Science 16(1/2): 1-9



Two groups of 12 female pigs (mean liveweight 16.9 kg) were housed at 30 degrees or 20 degrees C. Pigs in both groups were fed ad libitum with diets containing energy 3390 or 3730 kcal/kg, and 12.68, 15.67 or 18.69% crude protein (CP). The main ingredients of the diets were maize and soyabean meal. In the growing period (liveweight 16.91 to 41.28 kg) daily weight gain (LWG) was higher at 20 degrees than at 30 degrees.
