Abstract

In pigs growing from 20 to 70 kg live weight, the addition of 40 g sodium bentonite to each kg diet was without significant effect on growth performance under ad libitum and restricted feeding regimes. Sodium bentonite appeared to be indigestible and inert, as dry-matter digestibilities were reduced from 0·87 to 0·85 and 0·83 by the addition of 20 and 40 g sodium bentonite per kg diet respectively.
