In each of 2 experiments pure and crossbred pigs were grown at high, moderate or low rates of growth from 18 to 57kg liveweight. In the second experiment half carcasses were divided into 4 joints which were each dissected into bone, subcutaneous fat plus skin, and lean meat. Moisture, ether extract and N were estimated in the boneless tissue of each joint.
