Abstract

One-hundred and ninety-two crossbred weanling gilts (7.25 kg) were assigned to one of two treatments - (A) .65% Ca, .50% P or (B) .975% Ca, .75% P - and fed to an average weight of 92.8 kilograms. Average daily gain (.65 and .67 kg, respectively) and feed/gain were not affected by dietary treatment, but average daily feed intake was lower (P<.05) for gilts on treatment A (1.87 vs 1.95 kg).
