The value of the mutant corns has been demonstrated in their ability to support superior performance of animals consuming them and in the need for less supplemental protein in diets containing he corns. Research conducted at South Dakota University showed that oats can constitute 60% of the grain portion of growing and finishing swine diets with less supplemental protein and no reduction in pig performance. The purpose of the research reported herein was to study the value of high protein oats in pig starter diets as well as availability of lysine in the grain. The inclusion of opaque-2, double mutant and waxy corns in starter diets was also evaluated. Rate of gain, feed consumption and feed efficiency were used as response criteria.
