|Abstract: ||Diets containing 0, 15, 20, 25 and 30% oil palm slurry (OPS) were
fed, ad libitum, to 120 growing pigs which had been randomly allotted
to the various treatments on the basis of sex and weight. There were four replications of each treatment and the experiment was terminated when pigs weighed 70 kg. Feed intake (dry matter basis), feed efficiency and weight gains were not significantly (P>0.05) affected by the
inclusion of OPS in the diets. With the exception of loin eye area measurements which were higher in pigs fed the OPS-containing diets, all other carcass traits were similar.|
