Abstract

Various botanical products have been suggested to have beneficial effects as a replacement for manmade chemotherapeutic and antibacterial agents. This study evaluated four levels of goldenseal (0.0 to 1.0%) compared with a control diet control diet containing Mecadox for nursery pigs. Although not performing to the level of the Mecadox control, pigs on the 0.25 and 1.00% goldenseal diets generally performed better than ones on the 0.00 and 0.05% goldenseal diets and were often not statistically different from the Mecadox control pigs. Increasing levels of goldenseal did not influence the muscle characteristics evaluated.
