The purposes of this experiment were: (1) to compare and evaluate the effect of ear corn, shelled corn and a complete mixed ration when fed to growing and finishing swine; (2) to further determine the effect of each one on rate of gain; (3) to compare the feed efficiency of each type of feed in terms of total pounds required and the total cost of each; and (4) to determine the effect of each type of feed on backfat thickness.
