Excellence in Pig Fattening


As the result of a feeding trial, carried out by an independent station under real life conditions with 3 feed mixtures, fed to three groups of 40 pigs each, the combination

> 2/3 triticale + 1/3 rye

turned out to be superior to the other two mixtures (wheat + barley and barley + triticale) in all essential points as follows:

> amount of feeding costs
> meat quality
> profitability
