A feeding trial utilizing one-hundred and twelve growing-finishing Duroc pigs was conducted to evaluate the effect of buquinolate (0, 30, 60, or 90g/t) in their diets on growth, efficiency, and carcass quality. Pigs fed 30g/t or 90g/t buquinolate gained four percent faster than did control pigs; however, the feed required per pound of gain was the same. Carcass quality was similar for all treatment groups.; Swine Day, Manhattan, KS, November 10, 1977
