These trials indicate that high quality oats is a good feed for growing-finishing swine. The results show that you can satisfactorily use it to replace up to 40% of the corn in rations when your pigs are on pasture. When they are in dry lot you can replace up to 50% of the corn in mixed rations. Oats with a test weight of less than 35 pounds a bushel may not be as satisfactory.
