In 1958 a project was initiated to study the effects of alfalfa meal in rations for growing finishing pigs and sows which were kept in confinement. The pigs and sows used in experiments have been kept in confinement and on concrete from birth . Experiments with growing pigs have been reported in the 1959 and 1962 swine day reports. The results of the first farrowing of an experiment with sows was presented in 1960 (A .H. Swine 2, 1960). This experiment was continued until these sows farrowed 3 litters. A summary of the complete experiment is reported herein.
