DRY FEEDING [1 record]

Record 1 2003-07-16


Subject field(s)
  • Animal Feed (Agric.)
  • Pig Raising

Wet vs dry feeding. Within the water-to-feed ratios of 1.5:1 and 4:1 (optimum 2.5:1), performance of pigs will not likely vary. Any advantage shown for wet feed over dry feed is probably a reflection of the greater degree of food wastage with dry feed and the greater degree of lung irritation caused by dry, dusty diets.


  • Alimentation des animaux (Agric.)
  • Élevage des porcs

La ration [en période d'engraissement des porcs] peut être distribuée sèche ou humide (l'alimentation humide est préférable, surtout à partir de 40 kg). En cas d'alimentation sèche, l'aliment peut être sous forme de farine ou de granulés, distribués au sol, à l'auge ou en nourrisseur (dans le cas d'une distribution à volonté).
