Abstract

In this study we hypothesised that the tissue distribution in growing pigs would differ between pigs housed on deep litter and pigs housed conventionally. We also expected the impact of housing type on fat deposition and distribution would be more pronounced during the finishing period because the proportion of fat deposited in the total gain increases with age.
