Research conducted at South Dakota State University and reported in the 1983 and 1984 Swine Field Day Proceedings, indicated that the amino acid tryptophan is limiting in a lysine supplemented, 12% protein, corn-sunflower meal diet fed to young weaned pigs. This trial was conducted to further study the effects of tryptophan supplementation of an amino acid fortified, 12% protein, corn-sunflower meal diet and to estimate the dietary tryptophan requirement of the young weaned pig fed that diet.
