The purpose of this study was to collect data from swine fattening enterprises in the State of Texas, and to analyze the standards of efficiency achieved by students of vocational agriculture in the swine fattening enterprise and determine the relationship of these to some selected approved practices set up by state colleges. It is hoped that this analysis will be a valuable aid to the teachers of vocational agriculture in Texas, in teaching swine fattening, and that it will enable students to achieve production goals through the use of approved practices, and thereby help students produce pork more efficiently.
