Abstract—This study was conducted to evaluate comparative effect of Colistin and Liquid methionine (LMA) with Capsaicin supplementation in diets on growth performances and intestinal morphology of nursery pigs. Seventy-two crossbred pigs (Duroc x Large White x Landrace; initial weight 6.76±0.22 kg) were divided into three groups with six replications of eighteen piglets each. There were three dietary treatment: 1) basal diet (control) 2) basal diet with anitibiotic (Colistin 40 ppm of diet) and 3) basal diet with 0.2% LMA with Capsaicin. The result show that the supplemental of 0.2% LMA with Capsaicin significantly improve feed conversion ratio of pigs during pre-starter period (p<0.01). Adding Colistin and LMA with Capsaicin to diets can increase villous in the duodenum and ileum (p<0.01) and the villous height:crypt depth ratio in duodenum and jejunum. The supplement of LMA with Capsaicin significantly increase villous height and may lead to absorb nutrient for growth in pigs. In conclusion, this study indicates that adding LMA with capsaicin in diets can reduce antibiotic in diets of nursery pigs.
