The effect of weaning weight and age on the post-weaning growth performance of piglets fed fermented liquid diets

The effect of weaning weight and age on the post-weaning growth performance of piglets fed fermented liquid diets

Pig Journal 42: 10-23

Data derived from 224 pigs weaned at 18-32 days of age and weighing 5.7-9.7 kg at weaning are presented. Pigs weaned at 18-24 days (group 1) were 0.53+or-0.20 kg lighter at weaning than pigs weaned at 25-32 days (group 2). However, at the same chronological age (28 days post-weaning for group 1 pigs and 21 days post-weaning for group 2 pigs) the earlier weaned pigs were 1.46+or-0.48 kg heavier.
