A.H. Swine 4
Experiments conducted at this station and reported at Swine Field Day, 1958, indicated that erythromycin increased gains and improved feed efficiency of growing pigs fed complete mixed rations. In 1959 we reported that erythromycin appeared to be unpalatable when fed in protein supplements. This experiment was conducted to study the effect of erythromycin when included in the protein supplement, the ground corn or in the complete mixed ration. Feed consumption, growth rate and feed efficiency were the criteria used to evaluate this antibiotic.
