dc.description.abstract There is relatively little information on the utilization of vitamin A of different sources by weanling pigs. In this test, three sources of vitamin A were used: (1) a gelatin-stabilized vitamin A product, (2) carotene as supplied by high-quality alfalfa meal, and (3) carotene and cryptoxanthin as supplied by yellow corn. Alfalfa and yellow corn were analyzed for carotene and crude cryptoxanthin and units of vitamin A calculated by multiplying micrograms of these carotenoid pigments by 1.6 and 0.8, respectively. en_US
