Abstract

High oil corn (HOC) is a good source of both energy and protein. In pigs diets, however, it can have a detrimental effect on quality of the carcass. Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) corrects the fat quality problems that occur from feeding HOC. However, CLA does not consistently act as a growth promotant or as a way to decrease fat when feeding high energy diets.
