A.S. Series 71-31
Experiments conducted during the past few years have shown opaque-2 corn to have a higher nutritional value than normal corn. It is known that a higher content of the essential amino acid lysine is one of the reasons for the increased value of opaque-2 corn when fed to swine. Certain other essential amino acids are also present in higher amounts than in normal corn. It was reported at the corn could be fed free-choice to growing swine. The experiment reported herein was conducted to obtain further information on feed consumption and performance of growing-finishing pigs fed opaque-2 or normal corn free-choice with two different protein supplements.
