ESTEVEZ ALFAYATE, Jorge A. Nutritional Management During Gestation and Lactation on an Integrated Swine Farm. Case study. Rev. prod. anim. [online]. 2016, vol.28, n.2-3, pp.1-11. ISSN 2224-7920.

On the Rescate de Sanguily swine farm, of the Swine Company of Camagüey (Empresa Porcina), whose purpose is to prefatten pigs for pig fattening agreements with producers, the nutrition of breeding sows and the feasibility of using alternative rations or non-conventional products for nutrition, were partially assessed during gestation and lactation. The protein and energy values were higher than the requirements set up for these categories. Replacement of singletype feed for two types of feeds was simulated with the use on non-conventional raw materials during gestation and lactation. The goal was to assess the possibility to cut down on the costs of nutrition, close the gap between the requirements and nutrient contribution (PB and ED), and convenience of its inclusion of bulk feeds on the breeder´s diet. A comparison of the costs per ton of feedstuff showed a difference toward non-conventional products, which may offer some selection criteria to farmers, provided they are willing to implement diversifying strategies on their farms, or agreements with producing farms seeking profits for the two entities.

Keywords : nutrition; pigs; simulation.
