Abstract
The level of feeding bacon pigs can have considerable effects on the ultimate quality of the carcass, particularly in respect of the quality of the fat produced and the deposition of lean during the early stages of growth. The experiment described below was designed primarily to determine the level of restriction which, is required to produce a good average carcass when pigs are fed the Kenya Pig Industry Board protein supplement with a mixed cereal ration. At the same time this ration was compared with a mixed cereal and meat meal ration and one composed of barley meal and skim milk.
