Three experiments were conducted to determine the effects of replacing lactose with sucrose and molasses in simple and complex diets for nursery pigs. In general, complex diets supported greater growth performance than simple diets, and added lactose and sucrose gave greater efficiency of growth than diets without added sugars. Comparisons among sugar sources indicated that lactose, sucrose, and molasses were utilized equally well by weanling pigs.; Swine Day, Manhattan, KS, November 19, 1998
