The histological changes in the central nervous system and presence of porcine teschovirus detected in spinal cord by the RT-PCR, while the brain sample was assessed negative, confirmed previous Teschen/Talfan infection, explaining the clinical symptoms, for which the finishing pig
had been originally presented to the Division of Swine Medicine of the Vetsuisse Faculty, University of Zurich.
In the A previous study, we found that dietary different CP levels treatment had no effect on the growth performance in finishing pig
, such as final body weight, average daily feed intake and the ration of feed and gain (He et al.).
The finishing pig
MP was based on the assumption that the barn was 50% barrows and 50% gilts, which is a close approximation.
The inclusion of 0.5% clinoptilolite in growing and finishing pig
diets reduced the ammonia concentration (ppm) within the facility with a slatted floor.

Although the ractopamine inclusion in finishing pig
diets increases nitrogen utilization (ROSS et al., 2011), some researches registered that the ractopamine effect on muscle deposition of pigs is not constant during the supply of this additive in diets, and observed an immediate response, followed by a plateau then a decrease on muscle growth (DUNSHEA et al., 1993; WILLIANS et al., 1994).

The influence of various levels of milk by-products in weaning pig diet on growth performance during weaning to finishing pig
period are presented in Table 4 and 5.
The impact of ractopamine, energy intake, and dietary fat on finishing pig
