Abstract

The question of holding diets came about when the flow of market-ready animals was disrupted by the novel coronavirus earlier this year. At that time, recommendations were made on what producers could do to slow the growth of their pigs until the opportunity arose to send them to harvest. Nick Gabler, an Iowa State University Animal Science professor, quickly initiated a study to evaluate various dietary options to reduce growth rates.
