We conducted two experiments to determine the optimum ratio of total sulfur amino acids (TSAA) to Lys for late finishing pigs. In Exp. 1, 50 barrows and 50 gilts were allotted to treatments with three replicates of three or four pigs per replicate in a randomized complete block (RCB) design within a split-plot arrangement of treatments. Sex was the whole plot and TSAA:Lys ratio was the subplot. Average initial and final BW were 77 and 111 kg. Barrows and gilts were fed diets formulated to… CONTINUE READING
