Disease relevance of ADG


High impact information on ADG

  • Average daily feed intake and ADG did not differ among all diets in phase I and II and overall (d 0 to 28) [2].
  • Average daily gain was recorded for every individual; mean ADG was .593 +/- .007 kg/d and .619 +/- .009 kg/d in the two families [3].
  • The first 12 increments were .74 g/d, and the last two increments were 1.48 g/d. Average daily gain (ADG), gain/feed, and protein deposition increased curvilinearly (P < .01) with increasing lysine intake [4].
  • Average daily gain, ADF, and ME utilization were unaffected by feeding either zeolite diet, while F/G was increased in pigs fed the diet containing 5% clinoptilolite [5].
  • The results showed pigs treated with 10 mg/kg cadmium significantly decreased average daily gain (ADG) (p<0.05) and increased feed/gain ratio (F/G) (p<0.05) compared to the control [6].
