Sixty pigs from nine 1itters were allotted, 24 hours after birth, by litter, sex, and birth weight to three treatments: A) sow reared, B) artificially reared and fed milk replacer ad libitum twice daily (artificially reared-unrestricted), and C) artificially reared and restricted to 50% of the nutrient intake of treatment B (artificially reared-restricted). Artificially reared pigs were housed in individual cages during the 20 day treatment period. After 21 days of age, pigs were fed corn-soybean meal diets ad libitum to slaughter at 220 pounds. Average daily gains and pig weights at 21 days differed significantly (P<.0l) different among all treatments.; Swine Day, Manhattan, KS, November 13, 1980
