Experiment has been conducted to investigate the effect of feed additives of Chinese herb on the growing characteristics in piglets through feeding. 81 litter piglets (Duroc×Landrace×Yorkshire) were assigned randomly into control and treatment groups with three replicate pens. The trial group, control group I, control groupⅡfed with Nongda feedstuff (used effective components of Chinese medicinal herbs, ECCMH), Chiatai feedstuff, Shengnong feedstuff respectively. The results showed that comparing with control group I and control groupⅡ, ECCMH increased the average weigh of 35-day-weaning age piglet by 6.52% and 6.87% respectively (P＜0.05). Daily weight gain increased by 9.6% and 10.14% respectively(P＜0.05). The diarrhea ratio of piglets decreased by 42.57% and 27.78% respectively（P＜0.01）and decreased the death ratio of piglets by 45.95% and 36.00% respectively(P＜0.01).The results indicated that the ECCMH had good effect on improving the growing characteristics of piglets.
