Abstract

The study evaluated two levels of distillers dried grain derivative (DDGD) (2 and 4% of the total diet) compared with a control diet (0%) on pig growth performances. Thirty-two nursery pigs (22 days of age) were individually housed in stainless steel pens. The pens were located in a clean, environmentally controlled room. The pigs were allowed to consume one of the three diets ad libitum during the 28-day trial. The pigs were fed a phase I diet for the first 14 days of the trial and phase II diet for the remaining 14 days. There were no major positive or negative cumulative effects on ADG, ADFI, and G:F when feeding DDGD at 2 and 4% during a 28-day trial. Additional Performance trials would help elucidate the optimal role of DDGD in nursery pig diets.
