Inclusion of dietary multi-mineral-vitamin (â€œPignoxâ€) on growth performance in weaned piglet
Ida Bagus Gaga Partama
"Pignox" is a mixture of several kinds of vitamins and minerals, as a supplement in feed to stimulate the growth of piglets. This study evaluated the effects of multi vitamin-mineral-mix supplementation on the growth performance of weaned piglet. A total of 96 weaned piglets were randomly allocated to four treatments in a 60-day experiment with four levels of vitamin-mineral-mix (0%; 0.10%; 0.20%; and 0.30%, repspectively) supplementation in rice bran based diets. The results showed that â€œPignoxâ€ supplementation increased significantly different (p<.05) in the average daily gain and feed digestibility. Piglets fed with the diets containing 0.1%-0.30% of Pignox showed lower feed conversion ratio than the unsupplemented group (p<.05). In addition, multi vitamin-mineral-mix supplementation increased feed consumption compared to the unsupplemented group (p<.05). In conclusion, the administration of multi vitamin-mineral-mix was effective in improving growth performance of weaned piglets.
