  1. aC were Control Sows that received 2.3 kg/day food from day 25 to day 110 gestation, E sows consumed 4.6 kg/day food in early gestation (days 25 to 50), M sows received 4.6 kg/day in mid gestation (days 50 to 80), EM sows received 4.6 kg/day in early and mid gestation (days 25 to 80) and L sows received 3.5 kg/day from days 80 to 110 of gestation.
  2. A P value of < 0.05 indicates significance.
