A.S. Series 67-29
This experiment was a continuation of a project covering several aspects of the nutrition of young pigs. The results of previous work reported at the 1966 Swine Field Day ( A.S. Series 66-21) showed that a simple corn-soybean meal fortified ration was equal to a more complex diet that also contained rolled oats, dried skim milk and sugar. Therefore, the current experiment was designed to compare a basal corn-soybean meal type ration with a similar ration containing 3% fish solubles. Fish solubles are a good source of high quality protein and also may contain an identified growth factor(s). The experiment was designed to study the effect of fish solubles on palatability of the ration as well as its effect on growth and feed conversion.
