AbstractFull Text

A total of 2,204 pigs (PIC 327 sired) were used to evaluate the effects of piglet birth weight and litter size on preweaning piglet performance. At a commercial sow farm, all pigs born alive for 22 consecutive days were identified individually at birth with a numbered ear tag. Each sow was assigned ...

AbstractFull Text

Two experiments were performed to determine the effects of adding an enhanced feed flavor to the creep feed on the proportion of piglets consuming creep feed within litters and preweaning performance (Exp. 1) and the interactive effects of preweaning exposure to the flavor, nursery diet complexity, ...

AbstractFull Text

A total of 54 sows (PIC Line 1050) and their litters were used in this study to determine the effects of varying durations of creep feeding on the rate of pigs consuming creep feed (eaters) and pre-weaning performance. Two groups of sows were blocked according to parity and date of farrowing and...

AbstractFull Text

The objective of this experiment was to determine the effects of different creep feeder designs and increased feed accessibility on creep feed consumption and pre-weaning performance. A total of 54 sows (PIC Line 1050) and their litters were used in this study. Two groups of sows were blocked...

AbstractFull Text

Three experiments were conducted to evaluate the effects of supplementing different concentrations and sources of vitamin D3 on pig performance, feed preference, and serum 25(OH)D3. In Exp. 1, a total of 398 barrows from 80 litters (PIC 1050, initially 7 d of age) were used in a 38-d study in a 2×2 ...

AbstractFull Text

A total of 239 sows (PIC C-22) were used in this experiment. Sows were randomly allotted to one of the two experimental treatments approximately 5 days before their expected farrowing date. Control sows did not receive any topdress; sows on the WEANMOR+® treatment received a single daily topdress...
