Abstract

Ulceration in the pars oesophageal region of the stomach of pigs is frequently registered at slaughter. Pigs with gastric lesions are reported to have lowered productivity (Ayles et al., 1996), but other studies have found no significant effects on performance (Guise et al., 1997). The objective of this study was to quantify the correlation between ulcer severity and growth performance in growing-finishing pigs.
