Abstract
The studies were performed using breeding young pigs in the conditions of the enterprise “Moldsuingibrid” specialized in pig selection and hybridization. To carry out the scientific and economic trial on the principle of analogy, taking into account the breed, age, sex, body weight, and growth energy, 40 breeding pigs were selected, which were then divided into four groups (LC- control and LE1, LE2, LE3-experimental groups). The aim of the trial was to study the effectiveness of the introduction into the main piglets feed of additives with different levels of the Mycofix+ preparate (1.0, 1.5, 2.0 kg/t). It was found out that the addition of the Micofix+ to the mixed fodder for growing pigs had, in general, a positive effect on the dynamics of the live weight of the piglets. Nevertheless the more effective was the level of introduction of 1.5 kg/t. It was also revealed, that under the influence of Micofix+ the cost of the feed intake on live weight gain of piglets decreased.
