One of the most critical times in the nutrition of the pig is during the first few weeks after weaning. This is particularly true if the pigs are weaned at an age of 3 to 4 weeks or younger. During the past two years an experiment has been in progress at this station to study different ration ingredients in rations for pigs weaned at about 3 weeks of age in order to determine if more economical rations can be developed that will be highly palatable and support rate and efficiency of gains comparable or superior to more complex rations. The trials reported here were designed to study certain feed additives as growth promotants, to compare a simple and more complex ration and to study the effect of protein level in rations for early weaned pigs.
