High impact information on ADG

  • Average daily gain was recorded for every individual; mean ADG was .593 +/- .007 kg/d and .619 +/- .009 kg/d in the two families [1].
  • A single region on chromosome 3, flanked by markers Sw2429 and Sw251, for the second family had a logarithm of the odds score of 2.9, which is suggestive of linkage with a quantitative trait locus for ADG [1].
  • 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 [2].
