Effects of Immunological Castration and DDGS on Carcass Cutability and Commercial Bacon Slicing Yields of Barrows

Bacon slicing yield was lower in immunologically castrated male pigs the control diet (without distiller’s dried grains with solubles; DDGS) and 30 per cent DDGS than their counterparts that had been physically castrated, according to a recent study at the University of Illinois. Withdrawal of DDGS improved bacon slicing yields only in the immunologically castrated pigs.
