|Abstract||In the Netherlands, AA recommendations for pigs are published by the Centraal Veevoederbureau (CVB, Central Bureau for Livestock Feeding). The CVB recommendations, however, have not been updated since 1996. Because the genetic capacity and therefore daily gain and feed conversion ratio
of the growing and finishing pigs have been improved in the last 20 years and will probably further improve in the next years, the amino acid recommendations from 1996 had to be updated. The updated AA requirements in starter, grower and finisher diets for the current and future growing and finishing pigs (boars, gilts and barrows) are presented in this report.
