Three experiments involving a total of 606 pigs weaned at 23 +/- 2 d of age were used to evaluate the effects of added dietary Na or Cl or both in combination (NaCl) on postweaning performance responses. A basal diet without added NaCl was formulated to 1.20% lysine using a corn-soybean protein mixture with 20% dried whey (C-SBP-DW) and was used in all experiments. The analyzed content of the basal diet for the three experiments averaged .19% Na, .37% Cl, and 1.37% K. In Exp. 1, NaCl was added… CONTINUE READING
