The studies were conducted in the period from 06.02.2011 to 06.07.2011 in the conditions of the State Enterprise "Moldsuinhibrid" for pig breeding and hybridization, using Landrace breed pigs, selected on the basis of analogues . Four groups of pigs of ten heads each were formed. The piglets in the control group were fed the basic feed, and the ration for the experimental groups EG1, EG2 and EG3, was supplemented with the adsorbent Primix-Alfasorb at the level of 0.2, 0.4 and 0.6 kg / t respectively. It was established that the addition of the adsorbent Primix-Alfasorb into the mixed fodder for breeding pigs contributed to the increase of live weight gain during the periods of breeding; after the experiment the body weight was greater in groups EG1, EG2 and EG3 by 8.66, 5.77 and 7.88% compared with the control group. The use of the adsorbent Primix-Alfasorb resulted in the improved fodder conversion; the fodder consumption to increase the body weight decreased in the experimental groups by 6.25 - 9.69% in comparison with the control group. The optimal level of the adsorbent Primix-Alfasorb in the mixed fodder for breeding pigs was 0.2 kg / t.
