Use of Animal Byproducts in Practical Swine Diets for Young Pigs

Purdue University 1999 Swine Research Report. The objective of this study was to evaluate animal byproducts in diets for young pigs with genetics for high lean growth capability in segregated early weaning facilities. The advent of segregated early weaning management in swine production has forced the industry to reevaluate nutritional demands of newly weaned, high herd health pigs. The challenge is to develop nutrient and ingredient programs that allow these pigs weaned at 13-18 days to meet their genetic potential in a minimal disease environment.
