Abstract

Diets with more fiber, or a lower energy density, may offset the increased feed intake of pigs in hoops and result in leaner pigs. Oats have more fiber and less energy than corn. The objective of this study was to determine the effect of oats in diets on the performance of finishing pigs in deep-bedded hoop barns.
