Swine day, 1975; Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station contribution; no. 505; Report of progress (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service); 283; Swine; Salt; Finishing pigs; Performance


Two feeding trials involving 118 finishing Pigs were conducted to determine minimum salt needed in finishing diets. Performance of pigs fed 0.2 to 0.5% salt diets did not differ significantly, but pigs fed 0.1% or no salt gained significantly slower and less efficiently. Therefore, 0.2% salt in the finishing ration for swine from 100 lbs. to 215 lbs. should meet finishing pigs' requirements.; Swine Day, Manhattan, KS, November 13, 1975
