Dietary protein restriction during pregnancy has an adverse effect on progeny development, although the importance of the time at which the nutritional insult occurs is unclear. The objective in our study was to test the hypothesis that severe protein restriction during the first trimester of swine pregnancy has a greater detrimental effect on fetal development than restriction in late pregnancy. On the day of mating, primiparous swine were assigned to control (C, 13% protein) or protein… CONTINUE READING
