Abstract: Garbage is the main feed for swine in the Territory of Hawaii because of the high cost of other concentrates commonly fed to hogs. An extensive study has therefore been made of the value of garbage as a feed for swine. This study has included experiments with weanling pigs, with growing and fattening pigs, with brood sows, and supplementary experiments with rats. Analyses of 622 samples of military garbage and of 50 samples from a civilian cafeteria indicate that military garbage is ordinarily well balanced. at least in respect to nutritive ratio. That from the cafeteria was considerably lower in protein.
