A.S. Series 75-58
High protein grains have been shown to have greater value than normal protein grains when fed to growing and finishing swine. However, limited research has been conducted using these grains in young pig starter diets. Because cereal grains primarily supply energy in the swine diet, starter diets need to be supplemented with large amounts of protein supplement in order to meet the pig's nutrient requirements. High protein grains have the ability to provide energy and a major portion of protein in the diet. Three separate experiments were conducted to determine the value of high protein grains in pig starter diets and are reported here.
