Ear wounds. Too little protein in the feed

Ear ulcers are caused by too little protein in the feed But after we got optimize our feed, 80 percent of ear wounds and tail bites disappeared. It certainly has something to do with too little protein in the feed. " So try to optimize your feed for the group of pigs where you have the problems . But there can also be other factors who corse the ear wounds.
