AbstractData gathered at the Lajas Substation from October 1953 to July 1955, using 222 pigs in individual feeding trials, showed that feed can be mixed at the farm with economic advantage to the farmer. There are some locally produced ingredients which can be used in the rations. Among them are molasses and royal palm nuts. Probably some others could be secured in the near future. Other ingredients still could be bought from Continental United States. Small farmers can work cooperatively in order to take advantage of the system. The rations used and their approximate costs are given in this paper.
