Abstract

Twenty four castrated weaned (42d, 11.39kg) piglets were used to determine the influence of dietary zinc (0 or 50 ppm/kg) and phytase (0 or 200FTU phytase units/kg) supplementation on the zinc status in blood and bristles of pig. Blood was collected from the anterior vena cava and bristles of all pigs were collected at monthly interval during 180 days of experimental feeding. Growth rate (358g/d) was fastest (P
