BACKGROUND Recent research related to phase-feeding programmes for pig nutrition do not always account for the variation among individuals, and feeds are usually formulated to optimise the performance of the whole pig population. This study aimed at measuring the effects of a daily three-meal pattern with different dietary protein contents on pig growth performance, carcass and muscle quality traits.
