The objective of this study was to determine what level of canola meal can replace soybean meal as a plant protein source for nursery pigs. Two experiments on weanling pigs were performed to evaluate growth performance, thyroid hormone status and digestibility of the diets with varying levels of canola meal in the diet. Results indicate that canola meal is an acceptable partial soybean meal replacement at no greater than 13% in nursery pig diets.
