Abstract

Feeding trials involving each sex (boars, barrows and gilts) of finishing-weight pigs were conducted to determine the value of adding lysine to the rations. Rations containing 0.55% lysine were adequate for performance (rate of gain and feed/gain ratio) and carcass parameters (loin eye area, backfat thickness, length, and percentage of lean cuts) in all sexes.; Swine Day, Manhattan, KS, November 14, 1974
