Table 2 Average daily feed intake (ADFI; kg), average daily gain (ADG; g/d) and feed conversion ratio (FCR; g/g) averaged over treatment period for male grower-finisher pigs (from 14 to 22 wk of age) in the control group (Cont.; n = 15), the 1 % MCT supplement (1 % MCT; n = 15), the 3 % MCT supplement (3 % MCT; n = 15), and the 6 % MCT supplement (6 % MCT; n = 15) dietary treatments of Experiment 2
