Post-weaning feed restriction strategies have proved to reduce mortality and morbidity, but result in decreased growth and lower slaughter yield. To compensate for those deleterious effects without negatively impacting the health parameters, we have studied the possibility of increasing the dietary energy level of the feed. Four treatments differing in dietary digestible energy content (“low” energy content, LE1⁄49.08 MJ/kg vs “high” energy content, HE1⁄410.13 MJ/kg), and feeding level (ad… CONTINUE READING
