Proper environment for young pigs after early weaning and the most desirable floor type for maximum performance of the young pig have not been established . The effectiveness of antibiotics under ideal conditions has been the subject of considerable discussion. The relationship between floor type and pig response to antibiotics at this stage of growth is still unclear. The four trials reported herein were designed to evaluate the effect of antibiotics on pig performance under controlled conditions, to evaluate the effect of several different types of floors on pig performance and, in one trial, to look at the interaction between antibiotics and floor types as measured by pig performance .
