Preliminary results of ad libitum feeding of diets containing a high amount of fibrous components on the reproductive performance of sows



Preliminary results of ad libitum feeding of diets containing a high amount of fibrous components on the reproductive performance of sows



Journal of Animal and Feed Sciences 10(Suppl. 2): 243-248



The experiment was carried out on 33 sows fed low energetic feeds ad libitum. Control sows (group I n = 3) were fed restricted with a standard mixture, while up to the 100th day of pregnancy, the sows in groups II (n=10) and III (n=10) received ad libitum low energy diets containing a high amount of sugar beet pulp (50%), wheat bran (20%) and grass meal (10%). Animals in group III received the feed mixture for farrowed and nursing sows between days 28-56 of pregnancy.
