Methods of feeding for heavy pigs



Methods of feeding for heavy pigs



Allattenyesztes. 14: 337-350



Groups of pigs fattened to heavy slaughter weights were fed to appetite or given as much as they would eat for restricted periods. Liveweight gain of the pigs fed to appetite was slightly greater but they required more feed per unit gained. There was no significant difference in dressing percentage. In 4 other trials groups had access to dry meal in self-feeders all the time or during the day only or got wet meal from troughs. There was no significant difference between groups.
