Growth curves of pigs in a 3x3 factorial experiment
dietox data frame has 861 rows and 7 columns.
Data contains weight of slaughter pigs measured weekly for 12 weeks. Data also contains the startweight (i.e. the weight at week 1). The treatments are 3 different levels of Evit = vitamin E (dose: 0, 100, 200 mg dl-alpha-tocopheryl acetat /kg feed) in combination with 3 different levels of Cu=copper (dose: 0, 35, 175 mg/kg feed) in the feed. The cumulated feed intake is also recorded. The pigs are littermates.
This data frame contains the following columns:
- Cumulated feed intake
- Time (in weeks) in the experiment
- Id of each pig
- Vitamin E dose
- Copper dose
- Start weight in experiment, i.e. weight at week 1.
- Id of litter of each pig
