The correlation of chemical and physical corn kernel traits with growth performance and carcass characteristics in pigs.

Abstract

Corn kernel composition may affect its nutritive value and, thus, pig growth performance and carcass characteristics. The objective of this study was to determine the influence of the chemical and physical traits of corn kernels from different hybrids on the growth performance and carcass characteristics of pigs. A total of 288 crossbred pigs were grown in… (More)
