A total of 24 Large White Yorkshire pigs of 2-3 months age were randomly grouped into three treatment (T1, T2, & T3, respectively).In each group there were eight pigs of four replicates. Animals in T1 were kept in deep litter housing system and fed with fermented feeds. Animals of T2 were kept in deep litter housing system and fed with conventional concentrate ration and Animals of the T3 groups were under conventional housing along with conventional concentrate feeding system. Feeds and litter materials were fermented with Lactobacillus acidophilus. The data on growth, feed utilization, carcass characteristics were recorded upto 24 weeks of age in three treatments at every fortnightly (FN) intervals.
