In this paper, results relating to pig performance, cost of production, environmental impact and meat quality from large-scale production studies under a 3-year multidisciplinary research programme on finishing pigs, coordinated by the Meat and Livestock Commission, are presented. The main conclusion is that liquid feeding technology offers considerable potential for improving growth performance and feed conversion in the production of finishing pigs.
