A.S. Series 73-50
Milk production of the sow during lactation is influenced by feed consumed, condition of the sow, length of lactation and number of pigs she is nursing. Previous work at this station has shown and economic advantage for feeding sows ad libitum vs. limiting feed during lactation if sale weight of the sow is taken into consideration. The experiment reported herein is an attempt to confirm these fidnings and apply present costs and prices to the data to determine the most economical feeding management during lactation.
