In a completely Randomized Design, 8 Sows along with their litter were divided into 4 groups (G1 to G4) such that each group contained about 17 piglets totalling 69. A basal diet (control) was fed to G1 and diets of G2, G3 and G4 were made by adding citric acid, probiotic and a combination of these two, respectively. Growth performance of piglets fed with citric acid and probiotic (G4) recorded higher (P<0.05) ADG (g) followed by G2, G3 and G1. FCR and weight gain were lowest and highest (P<0… CONTINUE READING
