The effect of feeding system at weaning on performance, health and feeding behaviour of pigs of different sizes


The effect of feeding system at weaning on performance, health and feeding behaviour of pigs of different sizes



Acta Agriculturae Scandinavicaon A, Animal Science: 2, 78-83



DOI: 10.1080/09064700802294792

Pigs weaned at 31 to 34 days of age (n=280) were mixed into groups of 10 and fed from either feeders (2 feeding places per pen) or troughs (10 feeding places per pen). Analyses on performance, diarrhoea scores and feeding behaviour were made separately on small-, medium- and large-sized pigs, defined as their relative size in the group. During the second week after weaning, feed conversion ratio (FCR) was lower for pigs fed from feeders.
