Abstract:This research was conducted to evaluate the effect of adding enzymatic complex (EC) containing carbohydrases to diets for lactating sows and their litters.

They were blocked by farrowing order and randomly allotted to four treatments, in a 2 x 2 factorial arrangement (lactating diet (LD) x pre-starter diet (PD)), with two levels per factor (with or without EC). The following variables were measured in EC (74.6 vs 72.9kg and 6.32 vs 6.47kg, respec… Show more
