dc.description.abstract We conducted two studies to determine the effects of increasing L-lysine HCI in finishing pig diets. Experiment 1 used sorghum-soybean meal-based diets, and Exp. 2 used corn-soybean meal-based diets. Treatments included a control diet (no L-lysine HCl) or .15, .225, and .30% L-lysine HCI replacing the lysine provided by soybean meal. In Exp. 1, increasing L-lysine HCI from 0 to .150/0 had no effect on ADG, F/G, and percentage lean; however, pigs fed .225 and .30% L-Iysine HCI had poorer ADG, F/G, and percentage lean. In Exp. 2, ADG and FfG were poorer for pigs fed .225 or .30% L-lysine HCI compared with those fed the control diet or .15% L-lysine. Carcass charactistics were not affected by dietary treatnlent but tended to become poorer in pigs fed .225 or .30% L-lysine HCl. Unless diets are fortified with other amino acids, no more than .15% (3 lbfton) L-lysine HCI should be added to sorghum- and corn-soybean lneal finishing diets. en_US
