A.S. Series 73-47
Recent research has shown that the protein requirement for the brood sow may not be as great as once thought. Some work has indicated that all-corn diets with no supplementary protein may be satisfactory during gestation. Previous results from this station utilizing oats during gestation with no supplementary protein have been encouraging. The research reported herein was conducted to evaluate corn, a feedstuff low in protein and of relatively poor protein quality supplemented only with minerals, as a complete diet for gestating sows.
