The effects of increasing cadmium doses on the performance of fattening pigs and carry over of cadmium in several tissues 1. performance of animals and slaughter results



The effects of increasing cadmium doses on the performance of fattening pigs and carry over of cadmium in several tissues 1. performance of animals and slaughter results



Landwirtschaftliche Forschung 32(3): 292-302



In a feeding experiment with 100 fattening pigs (German Landrace barrows) the effect of increasing Cd doses on feed intake, growth, feed per gain, carcass characteristics and mass of several organs was investigated. The Cd doses cover the range up to 123 mg Cd/kg feed in 20 steps (5 pigs per step). The basic Cd content of the feed mixture was 0.11 mg Cd/kg; 123 mg Cd/kg feed (group 20) resulted in a massive depression of feed intake and growth; 61.5 mg Cd/kg feed (group 19) during the whole experimental period of 15 wk was without effect on the performance of the animals. There were no Cd-related effects on the carcass characteristics; 30.8 mg Cd/kg feed (group 18) and the higher Cd doses gave a significant enlargement of kidneys and heart; 123 mg Cd/kd feed (group 20) gave a strong tendency for heavier livers. The masses of spleen and thyroid gland were not affected by the Cd doses.
