Danish producers using pelleted feed and experiencing problems with gastric ulcers in their herd are sometimes advised to use diets containing alfalfa hay meal or diets that have greater mean particle size. However the effects of such interventions have not fully been investigated. These experiments investigated the effect of alfalfa hay meal and coarser milling in pelleted diets on growth performance and occurrence of gastric ulcers in growing-finishing pigs.
