i use ACV in my rabbits auto. watering systems. not all the time. but quite regularly. i cant honestly say ive kept written record of it helping the fryers to grow more rapidly, but ACV is known to help digestion, so i figured it can only help.
also with my fowl. ACV goes into their water quite often too. good digestion=happy fowl, happy fowl=good production.
id assume the same would work for pork too.
