Excerpt from Illustrated Lecture on Swine in the United States
Considering the relative economy of the different kinds of live stock, the pig takes a place among the most economical. For the whole fattening period the ox requires pounds of dry feed to produce 100 pounds gain; the sheep, 912 pounds; and the pig, 420 pounds.
Among the classes of farm animals the pig ranks second as a producer of human food from a given amount of digestible matter consumed. The milch cow leads in her power to con vert crops of the field into human food, with the pig second, poultry following, and the steer and sheep coming lowest.
