Abstract

During recent years some encouraging reports have been received from overseas concerning the feeding of antibiotic supplements in pig rations. In order to test these methods under West Australian conditions a pig feeding trial was conducted at Muresk Agricultural College during the early summer months of 1952-53. The purpose of the tests was to ascertain the effects of feeding antibiotic tablets to pigs from the weaner to the heavy porker stage.
