Studies conducted at this Station and at other experiment stations have demonstrated the beneficial effects of antibiotics in swine rations. Aureomycin (chlortetracycline), terramycin (oxytetracycline) and penicillin have all given good results in swine feeding trials. Recently zinc bacitracin has been shown to be of benefit in some swine trials and erythromycin has been reported to increase gains in poultry more than other antibiotics. This experiment was conducted to determine the value of some of the newer antibiotics in comparison with terramycin when fed to growing pigs.
