In the Scandinavian countries for many years past, and in Holland more recently, elaborately organised systems of pig-testing have been developed. The object is to provide the farmer with the type of pig best suited to meet the exacting demands of the British bacon trade. It is considered that it may be of interest at the present time of increasing pig population in Ireland to review production methods in all four countries, and to attempt to assess their value. The figures
and information given in this paper have been obtained from official reports and other publications, and from the directors and staffs of various pig-institutes visited by the author in Denmark, Sweden, and Holland last Autumn.
