Performance of Growing Male Pigs Exposed To Quantitative Feed Restriction
Eighteen growing pigs weighing 32.4 ± 1.4 were assigned in a completely randomized design to three levels of dietary rearmaments to know the effect of quantitative fed restriction on them. Each treatment had three replicates of two growing pigs per replicate. Each of the treatment was fed one of the 3 dietary levels as follows: 10% of the body weight as feed given to the control group (T1), 7.5% for T2 and 5.5% for T3. Analysis of variance at the end revealed that though the total feed intake value for T1 differed slightly numerically than those of T2 and T3; there were no significant differences (P> 0.05) in feed gain and body weight gain in all the treatments. Economic analysis was also determined. Result shows that subjecting growing pigs to feed restriction made higher profit than the control.
