This experiment was conducted to investigate the effect of feed provision level during days 0 to 30 postmating and day 91 to farrowing on the reproductive performance of sows and growth of piglets. A total of 78 second parity sows were used in the experiment. Sows were allocated into 2 feed provision groups, 2.0 or 3.0 kg/day during days 0 to 30 postmating. From days 31 to 90 postmating, all the sows were provided daily with 2.0 kg of pregnant diet.
