A.S. Series 75-61
Iron is added to most trace mineral salts and trace mineral mixtures at low levels. However, it has been reported by some swine producers that they obtain better performance of pigs when fed a relatively high level of iron. Therefore, the objective of this experiment was to determine if there was any benefit of adding iron at levels up to 250 ppm on pig growth, feed efficiency or blood parameters.
