Effects of Feeder Design And Pellet Quality on Finishing Pigs

Kansas State University Swine Research. Pigs fed from wet/dry feeders had 2.5% greater ADG and used 26% less water compared to pigs fed from conventional dry feeders. Also, as percentage fines was increased from none to 50%, ADG and digestibilities of DM and N decreased. However, the decreased ADG with increased pellet fines occurred only with the conventional dry feeder.
