Two feeding trials involving 112 Yorkshire weaned pigs (25 lbs.) were conducted to study the use of oats and fat in grower rations. Adding 3% fat (soy oil) to the fortified corn-soybean control ration reduced daily feed intake, but improved feed efficiency. Incorporating 40% oats in a fortified corn-soybean meal grower ration resulted in similar pig performance for rate of gain, daily feed intake, and feed efficiency even though the ration contained 6.5% fiber. Pigs fed a diet containing 40% oats and 5% fat gained 5% faster and were 10% more efficient than pigs fed the control ration.; Swine Day, Manhattan, KS, November 10, 1977
