Effect of feed particle size on performance and digestibility in pigs from 33 to 61 days old


Ciencia y Tecnica en la Agricultura, Ganado Porcino 13(3): 37-45
Effect of feed particle size on performance and digestibility in pigs from 33 to 61 days old
In a randomized block experiment with 2 treatments and 6 replicates 144 Yorkshire x Landrace x Duroc barrows and gilts were given mixed feeds based on wheat, soyabean and fish meal and torula yeast differing in particle size (6.35 and 3.10 mm screen) from 33 to 61 days old. Final liveweight, mean daily gain and feed conversion indices did not differ significantly between treatments (15.33 and 14.81 kg, 290 and 271 g and 2.81 and 2.96 kg/kg gain, respectively).
