Abstract: The possibility of using the complex silicon-containing preparation Energosil as a new feed additive for replacement gilts has been scientifically substantiated. The influence of various dosages of Energosil on the digestibility and utilization of nutrients, as well as the growth of replacement gilts and the biochemical status of their blood has been studied. The most optimal dosage of the new feed additive in their diets has been determined, which is 5 mg/kg of the live weight of the animal. It has been found that gilts from the first experimental group that received the silicon-containing feed additive in these quantities grew better, and digested all nutrients in the diet, compared to their counterparts from other groups. Young replacement gilts from the first experimental group that in addition to the main diet received Energosil in the amount of 5 mg per kilogram of live weight retained in the organism 17.1% more nitrogen, 55.9 % more calcium, 69.7 % more phosphorus, compared to their counterparts from the reference group. Blood indicators of the gilts in the first group were also more favorable than those in other groups.
