Evaluation of a feed flavor in lactation and starter diets to stimulate feed intake of weaned pigs






Nutrition Reports International 20(4): 455-460

Evaluation of a feed flavor in lactation and starter diets to stimulate feed intake of weaned pigs

A feed flavor previously fed in the lactation diet was incorporated into the starter diet to evaluate its effects on postweaning performance. Two series of experiments (each 5 wk) were conducted. In the 1st series, 3 experiments were conducted using 180 pigs from sows fed a flavored diet and 180 pigs from sows fed an unflavored diet. All pigs were fed ad lib a starter diet containing the same feed flavor. There was no difference (P > 0.10) in daily gain, feed intake and feed/gain between pigs from the sows fed flavored and unflavored lactation diets. In the 2nd series 3 experiments were conducted using 96 pigs from sows fed flavored and unflavored lactation diets. Half of the pigs from each of the sow groups was fed a flavored starter diet and half was fed an unflavored starter diet. Daily gain, feed intake and feed/gain was similar for pigs fed flavored and unflavored diets regardless of whether their dams were fed the flavored or the unflavored lactation diet.
