The Response of Weaner Pigs to the Replacement Value of Cassava Peel Meal for Maize

G.S. Bawa and M.A. Damisa

Abstract:
The excess demand on cereal grains has led to an unprecedented increase in the cost of livestock feeds. This has therefore necessitated the need to scout for cheaper and readily available sources. The study therefore examined the response of weaner pigs to diet levels in which Cassava Peel Meal (CPM) replaces maize up to 100% in the conventional livestock diet. A trial was carried out in which 20 weaner pigs were fed isonitrogenous diets that contained different levels of CPM. The study revealed that it is quite economical to substitute CPM for maize in pig diets.
