Growing/finishing gilts were fed two-, three-, four-, or five-phase diet regimens from 77 to 276 lb. The diets were mixed in either a conventional, horizontal ribbon mixer or a 9 ft auger. No interactions occurred among the mixer type and phase-feeding treatments. Pigs fed diets blended with the auger had similar ADG but slightly (4%) worse F/G compared to those fed diets mixed in the mixer. Finally, the three-phase regimen gave the lowest F/G and the lowest cost of gain.; Swine Day, Manhattan, KS, November 16, 1995
