N. Palova, R. Nedeva, Y. Marchev, D. Kanev
Abstract: A trial with 92 East Balkan suckling piglets. progeny of 16 farrowed sows from Еxperimental station of agriculture – Sre¬dets was carried out. The sows were divided into 2 groups of 8 sows – 4 sows of second. 3 sows of third and 1 sow of sixth farrowing. The piglets fed with compound feed consisting of 19.7% crude protein. 1.1% lysine and 12.1-12.2 MJ metaboliz¬able energy. and those in group II received 5% Alfalfa meal with increased content of crude fibers with 32% - from 3.17% in I to 4.19% in II group. A trial begins at 25 days after farrowing and continued to the weaning of piglets of 60 days of age.
The increasing of the crude fibers from 3.17 % to 4.19% in compound feeds for East Balkan piglets do not influence negatively on their growth performance.
Including of 5% Alfalfa meal in the compound feed for suckling piglets from East Balkan breed is recommended.
