dc.description.abstract Soaking grain for pigs has been revived and an automatic and self-feeder that soaks grain is on the market. This experiment was to test that system of feeding corn. Two lots of nine pigs each were self-fed, free-choice, shelled corn and a mixed protein supplement as a basal ration. The treatment of the two lots varied only in that corn for lot 2 was soaked in water. The protein supplement fed both lots consisted of 4 parts tankage, 4 parts soybean meal, 1 part cottonseed meal, and 1 part alfalfa meal. en_US
