Abstract

Rate and efficiency of gain were not affected by adding as much as 20% distillers dried grains in isocaloric diets for nursery pigs or 30% in isocaloric diets for finishing pigs. These results demonstrate that the previously suggested maximums of 5% distillers dried grains in nursery diets and 10% distillers dried grains in finishing diets are too conservative. Finally, because the 20% (nursery) and 30% (finishing) treatments were the greatest concentrations used in our experiments, additional growth assays are needed to determine the maximum limits for distillers dried grains in diets for pigs.; Swine Day, Manhattan, KS, November 16, 1995
