R. O. Myer and W. R. Walker2 Nutrients commonly added to grain for swine rations Protein (amino acids) Vitamins: Calcium Vitamin A Phosphorus Vitamin D Salt Vitamin E Trace minerals: Vitamin K Zinc Riboflavin Iron Niacin Manganese Pantothenic acid Copper Choline Iodine Vitamin B12 Selenium (Biotin) ** (Folic Acid) ** **Sometimes added.


Understanding Swine Feeding Programs 2 Major systems of supplying feed nutrients in swine rations. Ground grain + Protein Source + Calcuim and Phosphorus Sources + Salt + Vitamin Premix + Trace mineral premix Ground grain + Protein Source + Mineral and Vitamin Basemix Ground grain + Complete Supplement Complete Mixed Ration (i.e. 16% swine grower) 1.Vitamin and trace mineral premixes may be purchased as one premix. 2.Optional ingredients, (i.e. medications), may be included in the first three systems above be sure to follow label mixing directions. 3.Basemix may include separately packaged vitamins. 4.Booster packs may be required for some ration types, especially for the basemix and complete supplement systems follow manufacturers' directions.
