Pigs were scheduled to go to market in 2 “cuts.” At 16 wk into the grower-finisher period, the 3 heaviest pigs were removed from each pen, weighed. Explanatory variables examined (including those `ruled out' in the screening) are listed in Appendix multivariable model appears in Table ions where ≥ pigs entered the grower/finisher-production phase during the six-month period prior to the final interview had a better mean feed-conversion ratio than operations where pigs entered the grower/finisher phase.

2 2. Prevalence Studies on Trichinella in U.S. Pigs 1 Historical Data The incidence of Trichinella infection in domestic pigs declined in the United States during the 20th century, but remained present in some areas even in the latter part of the ’s (Table 1).

Prevalence rates of > % at the beginning of the 20th century fell steadily over the years. The pigs will stay here for about six to eight weeks or until the pig weighs upwards of 50 lbs.

During this stage the piglets are fed a corn and soybean meal diet eating as much as 4 lbs a day.
