A bried description is given of swine-feeding trials using different forms of cassava, soybean soap stock and dehydrated chicken manure as substitutes for maize. It has been found than 30 and 60 percent dehydrated cassava ampas (by-product of starch extraction) can be used satisfactorily to replace maize in diets for growing-finishing pigs. One of the problems of using fresh cassava roots is their conservation for long periods of time. Promising results have been obtained with growing-finishing pigs fed roots that had been stored in plastic bags for 30-40 days. (CIAT)
