Abstract
There are conflicting data on the exact Mn requirements of pigs for proper growth, skeletal development and reproduction (Underwood, 1971). Johnson (1940), reported that 0.3 ppm Mn and :the diet supported satisfactory growth cates hut that the tissue Mn levels were significantly depressed. He Later: showed that pigs grew well from weaning to market weight on rations containing 7 to 10 Ppm Mn (Johnson, 1944). Keith et al. (1942), using a high corn maize nation ,containing 11 to 14 ppm, found that the growth of pigs was not impaired hut skeletal development was poor.
