dc.description.abstract Pigs fed from wet-dry feeders had 4% greater ADG with 50% less water usage than those consuming feed from dry feeders. Pelleting diets improved F/G by 4% compared to meal diets. However, the benefits of pelleting were primarily when a dry feeder was used, with little evidence to support use of both pelleting and wet/dry feeders for finishing pigs. en_US
