Energy and amino acid requirements of gestating and lactating sows

C.M.C. van der Peet-Schwering, P. Bikker

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional


In the Netherlands, energy and amino acid recommendations for pigs are published by the Centraal Veevoederbureau (CVB, Central Bureau for Livestock Feeding). The CVB recommendations for sows, have not been updated since 1995. Because the litter size and milk production of the sows have increased in the last 20 years and sows have become heavier and have less backfat, the energy and amino acid recommendations from 1995 had to be updated. The updated energy and amino acid recommendations for parity 1 to 5 gestating and lactating sows are presented in this report.
