Partially omitting (up to 66 %) the supplemental inorganic phosphorus (P) source from a late-finishing (190 to 250 lb) diet resulted in slightly greater ADG and backfat thickness, which probably resulted from the greater feed (energy) intake. Meat quality was unaffected by treatment. Thus, during late-finishing, a total P concentration of .40% can be used to decrease diet cost without decreasing performance or meat quality of high-lean pigs.; Swine Day, Manhattan, KS, November 16, 1995
