Dietary protein is the main source of nitrous oxide and nitrates, harmful pollutants which are produced in pig units. So reducing the level of protein in the diet may be environmentally friendly. But will this compromise performance? This study compared three ‘nutritional strategies’ providing different protein and energy levels as pigs of two breeds grew from 40 to 120kg live weight.
