Omitting the vitamin and trace mineral premixes and(or) adding 2/3 less supplemental inorganic phosphorus source (from .55% down to .40% total P) to diets during late finishing (191 to 265 lb) had no effect on growth performance, carcass characteristics, or muscle quality in high-lean pigs. Thus, this concept can be used to decrease the cost of feeding terminal-cross pigs to heavy weights, while decreasing excretion of minerals from intensive swine operations.; Swine Day, Manhattan, KS, November 21, 1996
