Two trials with finishing pigs were conducted to evaluate wheat bran added to a basal milo-soybean meal diet to provide more crude fiber. Pigs fed added wheat bran (5-10-15-20%) and those fed the basal diet gained similarly, but 40% wheat bran (5.8% crude fiber) signigicant1y reduced rate of gain. Feed per pound of gain was improved approximately 4 to 5% with the addition of 10 or 15% wheat bran; however, cost per pound of gain was the same. Wheat bran usually costing more than milo would not merit its use in swine finishing diets.; Swine Day, Manhattan, KS, November 13, 1980
