PORK GROWN MOST CHEAPLY BY FEEDING
SOME GRAIN TOGETHER WITH FORAGE
It Has Been Shown at Different
Rnct Pnronn Ornno Ana I iffln
UV-'l I Ul Uljl, UIUiJ MIC L.IUII,
tion Alfalfa Excels.
Results of Investigations at tho Mis
souri experiment station Indicate
clearly that pork can bo produced
most choaply by feeding grain In com
bination with forage.
Tho kind of grain depends, of course,
upon tho forage crop. In the work
done at this station, In general, when
tho forago waB a legumo, such as al
falfa, clover, cowpoas or soy beans,
straight corn was tho grain fed. With
non-leguminous forages, such as blue
grass, rapo and oats, sorghum or ryo,
tho corn was supplemented with lin
seed oil meal, tho ration being made
up of six parts corn to ono part of oil
While tho kind of grain to feed Is
Excellent Berkshire Type.
Important, tho amount of grain Is of
equal, If not greater, Importance In de
termining the economy of grains. It
has been shown at different stations
that the best forage crops aro l(ttle
moro than a maintenance ration.
If gains are to bo made, then, It is
necessary to feed somo grain in addi
tion to tho forage. Experiments Indi
cate that tho greatest economy of
grain through the uso of forago is ob
tained when one and one-half to two
pounds of grain are fed dally for each
100 pounds of llvo weight. Tho best
general rulo Is to feed enough grain
to cause the hogs to mako a dally
grain of three-fourths of a pound for
each 100 pounds of llvo weight.
Where alfalfa can be grown success
fully there Is probably no crop that
will gtvo better results for swlno feed
ing. An aero of alfalfa will pasture,
during the grazing Bcason, from ten
to twenty shoats. The iraportunt point
to bo observed Is not to pasturo too
closely. Best results are obtained by
so pasturing that ono or two cuttings
of liay may bo tuken oil the field dur

HOE IS MOST HANDY
OF FARM IMPLEMENTS
Most Useful Tool in Equipment of
Gardener or Farmer Should
Be Kept Sharp.
(By It. Q. WEATHCnSTONE.)
So many people havo a horror of
rising a hoe. It is tho most comfort
able Implement to be found in tho
equipment of a gardener or farmer,
and It Is handy to uso for so many
purposes that ono cannot get along
Probably ono reason that peoplo do
not llko the hoo is that most hoes ox
plain at onco how "dull as a hoo"
came into proverbial use.
A dulUhoo Is certainly not a ploas
ant Implement with which to work.
The good gardener will Ireop his fa
vorite hoo filed to a sharp edge all tho
time It Is impossible to grind a hoo
on a grindstone because tho bevel
must bo on tho upper sldo of tho blndo
when It Is In uso in order to make
tho hoo "bite" Into the soli. .
File your hoe, making tho uevol
about twico as wide as tho thtcknera
of the blade. Then keep It bright and
when you go out after weeds tho hoe
slips through tho soil so easily that
hoeing Is not much llko hard work.
In hoeing n long slow movement
should bo mado, If tho soil Is In good
condition. Simply "scuffling" half an
Inch of tho top soil Is enough to kill
woods and ono can go over a lot of
ground In one day If the hoo Is sharp
and bright and tho strokes long and
With -n- 6harp hoo ono can cut
thistles, doclt, dandelions and other
noxious weeds with quickness, dis
patch and ease. It Is light to handlo,
easy to uso and moro effective than
any other implement for many pur
poses. In choosing a hoo aeloct one tho
blade of which lies not qulto fiat on
tho floor when you are Btandlng erect
with tho hoe handlo extending from
your hand when In working position to
tho floor. Tho hel of tne hoc snouia
not qulto touch tho floor from this
Such n hoo will bite Into the soil
easily, when it is bright and sharp
and will work smoothly and effectively.
Sharpen the hoe as soon as It gets
noticeably dull. This will bo hard on
the hoe, but it saves muscle and hoes
aro cheap. Carry a small flat file In
your hip pocket and do nbt allow a
nick to stay In tho hoo a minute
after It Is made.

thin station, with halt food of grain
alfalfa was found to carry twelve
head for 1G8 days.
Whllo It took five or bIx pounds ol
grain to ,the pound of gain, In dry lot
feeding, only a trlflo over three
pounds was roqulred when tho hogB
ran on alfalfar
Red clover ranks next to alfalfa aa
a forago crop for swlno. It will not
carry so many head per aero, nor fur
nish pasturo for so long a period as
will alfalfa. In two dlfforont trials
It was found that tho value of an acre
of clover for hog feed Is moro than
$34. Core should be taken with clover
not to pasturo It too closoly, nnd to
lot it reach, a helcht of 10 to 12
Inches before turning onto It.
Tho best results with nnnual forago
crops at this station havo been ob
tained with rape in which have boon
sown a few oats. Tho Dwarf Essex 1b
tho variety of rapo used. If Jt Is not
pastured too closely It will come up
again aftor tho first growth, In favor
able seasons. Tho data In this series
of experiments with rapo Bhowed that
an acre of it 1b worth $ 22.81 for pork
making. At tho Wisconsin station
better resultB wore obtained with it,
surpassing oven tho clover.
Bluegrass requires tho feeding of
moro grain than do theso other crops,
and It is only available in tho early
summer and after the fall rains. In a
number of trials at the Missouri sta
tion tho averaee return was found to
bo $lb,18 per aero.
In general tho mount of grain re
quired to mate a pound of pork In
tho dry lot was E.ll pounds, and tho
amount required on forago waB 3.49
pounds. Thus thero was a saving of
about 30 per ccui. of grain,, which U
replaced by tho cheaper forago.
EFFECT OF PLOWING
ON YIELD OF WHEAT
Results Given of Experiments at
An experiment was conducted at
the Oklahoma station for tho purposo
of determining tho effect of early me
dium and late plowing upon tho yield
of wheat. As an averago for flvo sea
sons, July plowing gave a return ol
27.1 bushels per aero; August plowing
yielded 24.2 bushels per acre; whllo
land which had turned about tho mid
dlo of September brought only 22 bush,
els per aero as an average.
If tho wheat fields aro plowed In
July and aro then worked down with
tillage Implements so that they do not
present a rough, open curfaco, anj
rain which may fall throughout tha
summer will bo absorbed and subse
quent culturo will enable tho grower
to save this supply for his crop. The
same plan can bo followed in prepar
Jng fields fpr alfalfa seeding.
Where It Is Intended to preparo tb
soil early In September, officials ol
tho station recommend that speclaj ef
fort should bo made to pulverlzo the
seed bed thoroughly after plowing so
that In tho event of autumn rains be
ing abundant, tho crop will coma
through In good condition.
Cause of Spoiled Eggs.
A. B. Lee, a spoclal agent of tha
government, Is going to establish an
egg oxperimont station at Frankfort
to see why eggs apoll so quickly, and
to work out plans whereby eggs may
bo kopt In hotter condition on tho
farms than at present. It- Is estimated
that about 10 per cent, of all tho oggs
recolved by tho egg dealers aro bad,
and tho government Is doing all pos
sible to find tho cauou. "
