Two experiments were conducted to test whether young pigs were capable of discriminating a feed based on its nutrient balance (or protein value) and/or the presence or absence of anti-nutritional factors, and whether there was an order of preference. In each experiment, 48 Large White x Landrace female pigs weighing 16.5+or-1.50 kg were randomly allocated to one of either 12 dietary treatments (Experiment 1) or 14 dietary treatments (Experiment 2) and kept on the treatment diets for 4 weeks.
