Abstract

Two hundred finishing pigs were used to evaluate wet vs. dryad libitum feeding. Growth rate of finishing pigs was significantly improved (5%) by wet feeding. Feed utilization was improved 4.5% by wet feeding. Dry feeder type did not influence performance, since all pigs fed dry diets performed similarly. Likewise, pigs fed wet diets performed equally regardless of wet feeder type.; Swine Day, Manhattan, KS, November 21, 1985
