HOGS DIFFICULT TO CONTROL
When Animal Once Acquires Habit of
Getting Out of Pasture He Is
Hard to Restrain.
When a hog once gets the habit of
getting out of its yard, pasture or
whatever its inclosure may be, it is
one of the most difficult animals to
control. You can step a breachy horse
or cow if you build a fence high
enough, but a hog goes through. If
there is no hole in the fence it makes
one. Of course If the fence was so
tight at first that the hog could not
>get through, it won't bother you the
second and forty-ninth time.
Insufficient or irregular feeding, or
falling to supply something which the
animals crave In the feed makes hogs
restless and ready to take the first
chance of exploring the outside world
'in hopes of finding what they failed
to find in their troughs.
It saves time and patience to keep
ithem contented and at home.
TREATING HOGS WITH WORMS
Prescription Given for Pig Weighing
': About 100 Pounds-Give Salt, Sul
phur and Charcoal.
To expel worms from hogs the fol
lowing prescription is right for a pig
iwelghing about 100 pounds : Santonin,
ifive grains ; calomel, two grains ; areca
nut, two grains; sodium bicarbonate,
one dram. Keep the hogs off feed
for about 12 hours and give the dose
in a rJop of middlings. The evening
of the same day give a mash of wheat
bran. This will flush the bowels.
Gather all worms and burn them.
Worms often are the forerunner of
If a hog or pig has a big appetite
'and thriftless condition, with dry dead
?hair, it ls a good indication of the
?presence of worms.
Salt and sulphur and charcoal should
'be kept in every pigpen and^ pig yard
?so the pigs can help themselves.
This is a corrective and a preven
tive of worms.
COLTS RESPOND TO FEEDING
?Sire of Animal Determined First Wln
! ter After Weaning-Aim to Build
Up Big Frame.
i No farm animal will pay more for
'abundant feeding than the colt. The
'.first winter after weaning, the ulti
mate size of the colt is largely deter
mined. We understand that the French
!Percheron breeders feed as much as
?ten pounds daily of bran and oats to
[their weanling colts.
. The object of feeding the weanling
colt is to induce the formation of a
iblg frame, with heavy muscling. Our
(aim ls not fat Therefore, we prefer
?to feed some bran, oil meal, and oats
in connection with corn. For this rea
son, also, we prefer a good quality of
clover or alfalfa hay to timothy hay.
In connection with timothy or corn
stover, we would feed a mixture of five
parts of com, three parts of oats, three
?parts of bran, and two parts of oil
meal; while in connection with good
iclover er alfalfa hay, we would make
the mixture five parts of corn, three
?parts of oats, two parts of bran, and
.one part of oil meal.
To a colt of draft ancestry, designed
-?OT market, we would feed at least five
?pounds of such a mixture the first
winter, and, as the winter wears on,
we might increase to seven or even
ten pounds.-Wallace's Farmer.
FEEDING ALFALFA TO SWINE
(Some Arrangement Ought to Be Made
to Prevent Hogs From Dragging
Hay Around Underfoot
In feeding alfalfa hay to hogs some
.arrangement must be provided to pre
sent them wasting the feed by drag
ging it around underfoot. A rack with
ends boarded up solid and sides made
.with -upright two-by-fours far enough
apart for the hog to pull the hay
through will prevent waste. It should
be made light enough so lt can be
easily moved by hand to avoid having
the hogs always eat at the same
place. Quite a broad bottom will be
necessary or the rack will get tipped
over too often for the owner's serenity,
