The effects of feeding level during both pregnancy and lactation on long-term productivity and body composition of sows

  • P.A. Lee (a1) and W.H. Close (a1)

Extract

Body reserves play an important role in reproduction because they can be used by the sow to buffer against inadequate nutrition when metabolic demands are high, especially in late pregnancy and lactation. There is, however, little available information on the dynamic role of body reserves during reproduction and the present experiments were designed to demonstrate how the body reserves of the sow change in response to different nutritional inputs and to determine whether these influence sow productivity.
