The nutritional effects of varying levels of leguminous leaf meal inclusion were investigated using 40 mixed weaner pigs of average weight 31·4 (s.d. 4·19) kg offered diets which included leguminous leaf meals (Acacia karroo, Acacia nilotica and Colophospermum mopane) over 18 days. The leaf meals were included at 100, 200 and 300 g/kg of dry matter. Leaf meals increased daily live-weight gain ( P > 0·05) at low inclusion levels. They were also shown to increase food intake and food conversion… CONTINUE READING
