The objective of the study was to evaluate the effect of using herbal lysine as a replacement for synthetic lysine (L-lysine HCl) on the growth performance of pigs. Sixty (60) pigs were randomly allotted to two treatments: control (L-lysine HCl) and herbal lysine group using a completely randomized design. Data were analyzed using the Student’s T-test using the SAS software. The ɑ-level used to determine significance and tendencies between means were 0.05 and 0.10, respectively. The results revealed that no significant differences (P<0.05) were observed on the ADG and FCR of pigs supplemented with L-lysine HCl and herbal lysine. However, a better ADFI was observed (P<0.05) in pigs fed diets supplemented with herbal lysine. It is therefore, concluded that herbal lysine can be utilized by the farmers as an alternative for synthetic lysine.
