Extract

A number of recent experiments have indicated that growing pigs, given the choice between diets of differing protein content, have the ability to select a daily nutrient intake appropriate to their requirements. This experiment was designed to investigate this ability in pigs which are extremely different in their genetic potential for protein deposition rate. European pigs have undergone intensive selection for a high protein deposition rate, whereas the Meishan breed from China is still relatively unimproved and capable of only a low rate of protein deposition.
