From: Effects of dietary lysine levels on plasma free amino acid profile in late-stage finishing pigs

Parameters1 Treatment group SE2 P value3

  1. 1The total calculated lysine contents in Diets I, II, and III were 0.43, 0.71, and 0.98 % (as-fed basis), respectively
  2. 2SE = pooled standard error of mean (n = 6)
  3. 3 P value was obtained from the ANOVA F test
  4. 4ADG, average daily gain
  5. a,bMeans within a row that do not share a same superscript differ (P < 0.05 or 0.01)
