Details

Data contains weight of slaughter pigs measured weekly for 12 weeks. Data also contains the startweight (i.e. the weight at week 1). The treatments are 3 different levels of Evit = vitamin E (dose: 0, 100, 200 mg dl-alpha-tocopheryl acetat /kg feed) in combination with 3 different levels of Cu=copper (dose: 0, 35, 175 mg/kg feed) in the feed. The cumulated feed intake is also recorded. The pigs are littermates.
