Abstract: The study describes the use of tripoli as a feed additive in the rations of sows and suckling pigs at the dosages of 0.5, 1.0 and 1.5% in dry matter. The research showed that the dosages studied do not produce a significant effect on the dynamics of the live weight of animals during the gestation period. With the introduction of tripoli as a feed additive at the amount of 0.5, 1.0 and 1.5% of the dry matter into the ration, the best results in increasing the digestibility of crude protein, crude fiber, raw fat and nitrogen deposition in the body were reached with the use of tripoli at 1% in dry matter. The use of tripoli at 0.5% in dry matter increased the multiple births 10.8%, at 1.0% by 25.0% and at 1.5% by 13.0%. The optimal dose of tripoli in the rations of sows and piglets (1.0% in dry matter) ensured an increase in the safety of young animals during the suckling period by 17.1% and in the live weight of piglets by 9.3%. At the same time, the feed costs per piglet of the weaning age when using tripoli at a dose of 1.0% in dry matter decreased by 6.5-20.0% and the payments for food by the produce increased by 25.1-26.7%. The article was prepared within the framework of the state agreement of the Ministry of Education and Science of Russia of 3.10.2017 No. 14.610.21.0018 ‘development and implementation of the latest competitive domestic technologies in the field of genetics and animal breeding for intensive production of pig farming.
