Abstract

Pigs housed in hoop structures may have an increased amount of fecal fiber compared with pigs housed in confinement because the hoop pigs have access to bedding and may consume bedding. The objective of this study was to determine whether the pigs housed in hoop structures consume the cornstalks that are used for bedding
