1. The results of this series of tests indicate that if pigs are badly infested with worms, worming them once by an efficient method as soon as possible after weaning will reduce feed costs during the subsequent feeding period.
2. Worming the pigs a second time resulted in increased rather than decreased feed costs as compared with pigs wormed only once.
3. The results of two tests indicate that chenopodium plants may be used as a forage crop to eliminate worms and reduce grain and supplements required to produce 100 pounds of gain.
4. Cultural methods for development of chenopodium are now in progress, and as soon as completed specific recommendations as to its practical value as a forage crop for worming pigs will be made.
