Abstract:In a third experiment graded levels of lysine (.69 to 1.15%) were offered to barrows and gilts raised at either 33 or 26$\sp\circ$C at 23 kg as initial body weight for four weeks. The lysine requirements for daily gain and for feed efficiency were 1.06 and 1.08% for the hot and.93 and 1.12% for the cool conditions respectively. It is concluded that a higher level of lysine is required to enhance daily gain in hot conditions, as compared to cool conditions. However, the requirements of lysine for feed efficiency were similar between both environments.
