Effects of amino acid and energy intake during late gestation on pigle
Increasing feed intake in late gestation improves very little body weight gain of gilts and sows and increases stillborn rate.
Increasing SID lysine levels in lactation diets may reduce tissue mobilisation of the sow while litter weight gain during lactation is improved.Increase of dietary lysine levels in lactation diets on sow and litter
