Abstract

The food consumed by pigs during their transition from weaners to marketable porkers or baconers is the biggest single item on the pig-raiser's list of costs, so it naturally follows that if we can reduce food costs while still maintaining carcass weight and quality there will be bigger margins of profit when the pigs are sold.
