|Abstract: ||The effects of diets containing 0,5,10 and 15% sheanut cake (SNC) fed ad libitum to 20 growing gilts duringa 10 week feeding trial were studied. Growth and reproductive performances were observed after the withdrawal of SNC from the diets over a period of 22 weeks and one parity respectively.
The inclusion of SNC significantly (P<0.05)depressed growth rate and feed conversion efficiency but not feed in take,owever,feed cost (cedis/kg) reduced with increasing levels of SNC.
The post withdrawal growth and reproductive performances for all the pigs were not significant different ( P>O.05)|
