The Feeding Value of Rumen Content-Maggot Meal Mixture in the Diets of Early Weaned Piglets

A.A. Adeniji

Abstract:
Forty five piglets weaned at 28 days of age were used in this experiment to investigate the effect of Rumen Content-Maggot Meal Mixture (RCMM) in their diet. RCMM was included at 0, 5, 10, 15 and 20%. Increasing the level of RCMM in the diets of weaned pigs had no significant effect (p>0.05) on weight gain and feed to gain ratio. However, the treatment had a significant effect (p>0.05) on feed intake. There was also no treatment effect (p>0.05) on nitrogen intake, urinary and feacal nitrogen and nitrogen digestibility. Feed cost slightly decreased from N22.87 at 0 to N22.56 at 20%. The results of this feeding trial showed that early weaned pigs could tolerate 10% RCMM in diet without any adverse effect on performance.
