Abstract

Objective: To determine effects of an iron dose at weaning on growth and hematology in pigs fed zinc. Materials and methods: Weaned pigs (n=144) were allocated to treatments in a 2×2×2 factorial arrangement (6 pens/treatment, 3 pigs/pen), with factors being pig size (large or small); number of 100...

Abstract

The adrenal hormone dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) in contrast to cortisol is suggested as a chronic stress marker. The aim of the present orientation study was to test whether DHEA was different in 10-wk-old pigs reared with three different housing systems on different farms. Blood and saliva were...

Abstract

Objective: To determine the effects of varying the number of pigs per feeder hole and group size on feed intake onset, growth performance, and lesions in nursery pigs. Materials and methods: A total of 630 pigs were randomly assigned at weaning (mean [SD] age of 20.5 [0.9] d and weight of 5.59...

Abstract

A total of 256 pigs (initially 55.9±4.88 kg) were used in a 71-d study to determine the effects of increasing space allowance and pig removal on pig growth performance. Pens of pigs were blocked by body weight (BW) and allotted to 1 of 4 space allowance treatments, initially with 8 pigs per pen and ...
