At the close of the experiment, December 15th, pigs No. 3, 4 and 5, were killed. The live weight, the dressed weight, and the shrinkage of each, was found to be as follows:

Pigs Nos. 1 and 2 were not killed, as they were only in fair store condition.

The following measurements, taken on the morning of the 15th, will show that they had made a fair growth of carcass, without fattening:

In the remarks on Table No. 4, in the report on sheep feeding, the method of obtaining the amount of feed consumed for each 100 lbs. of live weight, is fully explained.

The amount of feed required to produce one pound of increase per week in each pen, is obtained by dividing the feed consumed each week, by the gain in live weight for each week. The average amount of feed required to produce one pound of increase for each week, is obtained by dividing the amount of feed consumed in both pens for the week by the gain in both pens for the week.
