In 56 balance trials sows received diets in pregnancy containing (g/kg diet) either 24·7 nitrogen (N) (C) or 16·7 N (L) followed by diets in lactation containing (g/kg dietary dry matter) either 28·5 N and 8·4 lysine (C) or 32·8 N and 10·3 lysine (H). N and energy balance during lactation (day 4 to 25) were made during three successive parities (23, 17 and 16 sows in parities 1,2 and 3, respectively). Retention in piglets was calculated from their body composition at weaning. Mean daily litter… CONTINUE READING
