To investigate the relationship between feeding level during gestation and voluntary feed intake, feeding behavior, and plasma metabolite levels during lactation, 18 crossbred, primiparous sows were assigned to two dietary treatments. From d 60 of gestation until farrowing, sows were fed either a standard level of feed (SL; 1.85 kg/d) or were allowed ad libitum (AL) access to feed. During a 28-d lactation all sows were allowed ad libitum access to feed. Eight SL and seven AL sows completed the… CONTINUE READING
