Effect of the feeding level during rearing on performance of Large White gilts. Part 1: Growth, reproductive performance and feed intake during the first lactation



Effect of the feeding level during rearing on performance of Large White gilts. Part 1: Growth, reproductive performance and feed intake during the first lactation



Reproduction, Nutrition, Development 38(4): 363-375



50 pure-bred Large White gilts were allocated to 2 feeding levels from 28 kg until service. They were fed on a standard growing diet (DE 13.4 MJ/kg, 18.1% CP, 0.96% lysine) to appetite (AP) or at 80% of the AP level (R). Growth rate was reduced by 20% in R gilts, while feed conversion ratio was unaffected by rearing treatment. First oestrus was detected earlier in AP gilts (234 vs. 247 days of age).
