Present study demonstrates the effect of enzyme supplementation on performance of weaned pigs. 15 nos of 56 days old Large White Yorkshire piglets with mean body weight of 10.43 ± 0.20 kg were randomly assigned to 3 treatments (Control, T1& T2) with 5 piglets in each group and were fed with iso-nitrogenous and iso-caloric diets containing the enzyme complex product at 0, 5 and 6 kg/ton of feed, respectively for 28 days. The result showed that there was no significant differences (P>0.05) on body weight but enzyme supplementation increases the body weight@7.86% and 7.93% in T1 and T2 groups, respectively compared to control. T2 group showed significant difference (P<0.05) in body length, chest girth and loin girth of pigs whereas no significant effect (P>0.05) was found on average height at wither. Average daily gain (g/day) in T1 and T2 groups was found to be increased (P>0.05) by 25.06% and 21.41%, respectively than the control group. Pigs fed diets supplemented with enzyme complex tended to have increased (P<0.05) digestibility of dry matter (DM) and crude protein (CP). In conclusion, 6 kg/ton of dietary enzyme complex can be supplemented in the diet of weaned pigs for better growth performance.


  • Digestibility of DM & CP increases by supplementation of enzyme complex.
  • Better growth performance in weaned pigs is achievable with 6kg/ton of dietary enzyme complex supplementation.
