Individual pig weights were recorded at the beginning of the experiment and every two weeks thereafter. The amount of feed dumped in each feed was recorded on a daily basis and feed in the feeders was recorded each time the pigs were weighed. At slaughter, indvidual live wights, the dressed weights, fat depth, loin depth, and the lean meant percentage were measured for each pig. At the end of the experiment, feed disapearance for each pen was calculated for each period. Likewise, average daily weight gain and average gain to feed ratios were calculated for each pen.
