The aim of this research was to determine the liver amino acid and mineral content of hybrid boars fed by the feed additive betaine in different proportions and to determine the optimal amount of betaine in the diet. Material and methods of research. In order to achieve this goal we have conducted a research experiment. It was conducted on hybrid boars F1 (Big white х Landrace) at the farmnucleus of Servolyuks-Genetik Ltd., Orativ district, Vinnytsia region. The experiment was conducted on four groups of young pigs selected by the principle of analogue groups. Gender, age, origin, living weight and growth intensity during the previous period were taken into account when groups for experiment were formed. Sixty-eight boars were selected; four groups were formed, each group had 12 animals (main period). The control group was fed by the basic diet (BD). It was the mixed fodder produced by Trouw Nutrition International (the Netherlands). Experimental groups were additionally fed by a feed additive betaine in accordance with the experimental scheme. The duration of the equalization period and the main experimental periods was, respectively, 15 and 72 days. Research results. The research results of liver amino acid and mineral content under the action of the feed additive betaine are presented. The positive effect of betaine supplements on the content of macro- and microelements and the amount of amino acids in the liver of experimental boars have been studied. Additional consumption of feed additive betaine by hybrid boars on fattening positively effects on the amino acid composition of the liver. The liver of animals of the third group had the higher content of arginine by 0.96% (P>0.01), methionine by 1.08% (P>0.001), threonine by 0.52% (P>0.001) and phenylalanine by 0.85% (P>0.001) than the control group under the action of the researched feed additive. The liver of animals from the fourth group had the highest level of histidine; it was by 0.13% (P>0.001) more than in the control sample under the action of betaine. It has been established that the consumption of a feed additive caused increasing of calcium in the liver of the second group by 4.3% (P>0.001 than in the control group. The use of the researched feed additive for hybrid boars feeding increases the amount of zinc in the liver of the fourth group by 17.9% (P>0.001) and manganese by 18.2% (P>0.001) than in the control one.
