Abstract
In a feeding trial 18 Large White pigs were fed from 100 lb. to slaughter weight (200 lb.) on rations containing 15, 30, 45, 60, 75, and 90 per cent maize, the total crude protein content of the rations being kept fairly constant. While there was a tendency for the carcass fat to become softer, with a higher iodine value, as the percentage of maize in the ration increased, all the fats were suitable for bacon Curing. The factory grading of the carcasses tended to be lower the higher the maize content of the ration, but none was below second grade.
