The effect of feeding a coarsely ground meal (COARSE) and a finely ground pelleted diet with 1.8% (as-fed basis) added formic acid (ACID) was compared with feeding a standard finely ground pelleted diet (STD) on the gastrointestinal ecology of growing pigs at different intervals after feeding. One hundred five castrated male growing-finishing pigs (initial BW 27 kg) were used. At a BW of 63 kg, 60 pigs were killed 0.5, 2.5, 4.5, 6.5, and 8.5 h after feeding, and samples from the… CONTINUE READING
