Abstract

The rising price of corn has created increased interest in alternative feedstuffs by livestock producers, and niche market pork producers are no exception. Unfortunately, there is currently no single replacement for corn in Midwest pig diets, even at today’s market prices. Thus, managing factors that you can more easily control is critical for continued success in pork production.
