Abstract. The aim of the present work was to determine fattening and slaughter results of pigs as well as physical properties of meat Pulawska breed fed mixtures containing faba beans and corn distillers dried grains with soubles (DDGS). Thirty animals were divided into three equal groups: control (I) and two experimental (II and III). Pigs were kept in pens and fed collective ad libitum, the same mixtures throughout fattening. In the mixture of the control animals group only raw material for high-protein soybean meal was, while in mixtures experimental groups 1/3 of extracted soybean meal protein by faba bean (group II) or DDGS (group III) was replaced. Introduction of 10% low-tannin faba bean in the mixtures for pigs did not effect the daily weight gains, while the use of the same amount of corn distillers dried grains with soubles in the diet significantly (P ≤ 0.05) reduced daily gains and, consequently, the final body weight of the fatteners. No effects of the nutrition on fleshiness and fatness carcasses were notice. Longissimus muscle of pigs fed DDGS characterized by the highest drip loss after 48 and 72 hours from slaughter (P ≤ 0.05) and the lowest saturation yellow b* (P ≤ 0.05).
