The effect of graded levels of ‘Greenwich Gold’ on the performance of growing-finishing pigs

  • P.H. Brooks (a1) and P.J. Russell (a1)

Extract

Using food industry liquid co-products can significantly reduce the cost of pig production (Scholten, van der Peet-Schwering, Verstegen, den Hartog, Schrama and Vesseur 1999) as well as reducing environmental pollution (Brooks, Moran and Beal 1999). Greenwich Gold (GG)(Amylum UK Ltd.) is a liquid residue, known in the trade as bottom stills, resulting from alcohol fermentation of wheat starch. Although the product is widely used by UK pig producers there is no published information on which to base a recommendation for maximum inclusion rate in diets for growing-finishing pigs. The objective of the study reported here was to assess the effect on growth performance and carcass quality of feeding pigs diets containing increasing levels of GG.
