The effects of feeding growing pigs the arsenicals arsanilic acid and 3-nitro- 4-hydroxyphenylarsonic acid have been reported by several research workers. It has also been suggested that these compounds might decrease the back fat of hogs. The purpose of this experiment was to compare the response of pigs to the above two arsenicals and also to another arsenical, arsenosobenzene. The effect of these compounds on carcass value, especially backfat thickness, was also determined.
