Plant Grazing Crops and Feed
Heavily at All Times.
Clemson College.-"The market hog
that sees his first birthday usually
loses money for the owner." This
statement is made by D. W. Williams,
livestock specialist of the Extension
Service, in discussing profitable hog
production in South Carolina. This
means that the hog must go to the
slaughter at eight to ten inotnhs o? ?
age, weighing two hundred pounds.
This is not an unusual weight for
hogs at eight months. Recently one
feeder averaged over two hundred on
twelve head at five months. To make
profits from hogs it is necessary to
feed heavy at all times. A starving
process is a losing one in growing
The hog raiser's problem, therefore,
is "How can I make the most hog, in
the least time at the lowest cost?"
Plenty of feed provided ahead of time
is the solution. Pigs farrowed in Jan
uary and February should be ready
for the October and November mar
Start now and provide the feeds
that will be needed this fall. We can
not compete with the corn bolt farmer
raising hogs in a dry lot on corn and
purchased supplementary feeds such
as shorts and tankage. While these
are always necessary to make the best
gains, we must use forage crops just
as much as possible. With the wide
use of forage crops cheaper pork can
be produced in South Carolina than in
the corn belt.
Be sure to plant some supplement
ary feed crop with your corn. Cow
peas, soy beans and velvet beans all
furnish good grazing for hogs. In
the fall let the hogs do the harvest
ing and you will find but very little
wasted. Let the hogs you are going
to market gather most of the feed;
then when it gets so scarce that they
must cover a great deal of ground in
getting enough to eat. remove thom
and let sows and smaller pigs finish
cleaning up the field.
A small patch of sweet potatoes will
furnish much succulent feed, which
with a grain ration will make very
Every farmer, whether or not he
raise hogs, should have some alfalfa.
It pays handsomely where it is
grown. As a forage crop for hogs it i
It is questionable whether it is ad
visable to plant very many peanuts for
hogs this fall, says Mr. Williams.
While hogs malie very cheap and
rapid gains on this crop, the carcasses
are greatly discriminated against on
the market Soft drippy pork is not
desirable. South Carolina is now
producing hogs that sell to better ad
vantage than those from other South
ern States, because these hogs kill
hard as a rule. It is to our advantage
to continue marketing a superior prod
uct which sells well toward the top of
the market rather than to get a rep
utation for soft hogs and take a cut
in price which is often three or four
cents per pound.
Hogs will be marketed this fall in
carload lots from practically every
county. Aim to provide a few surplus
hogs for these shipments to help es
tablish a hog market in this state. Be
sure to kill enough to assure your
home supply of meat; then market
the surplus. In the future of diversi
fied farming in South Carolina the
hog is one of the most promising fac
GREEDY HENS AR? GOOD
Clemson College.-It is not gener
ally known that the greedy mother
who eats almost all the food thrown
to the baby chicks is doing her best
to-prevent the loss of her brood. Just
before a chick is hatched it absorbs
the greater part of the yolk of the egg.
This yolk will not be digested for a
week or ten days, and if the chick is
overfed its system becomes clogged,
the yolk decays, and the chick dies.
Many persons raising chickens in
brooders make the fatal mistake of
feeding the biddies too much. The
brooder is not a greedy hen and it
cannot eat the food and thereby pre
vent the chicks obtaining more than
they should have to eat.
Place the brooder on sharp sand,
have the temperature one hundred
degrees when the chicks are removed
from the incubator, and do not feed
the chicks the first day. Give them
buttermilk or sour milk; otherwise
fresh water. A tomato can with a
hole punched near the open end
should be filled with liquid and in
verted over a saucer to prevent the
chicks from becoming wet. ?
On the second and third days scat
ter a little rolled oats on the sand
floor four or Ave times daily. On the
fourth day begin alternating rolled
oats with some coarse hominy or com
mercial chick fei?d. The latter is
preferable because it contains also
millet seed and cracked wheat. Scat
ter these on the fine litter ta make
the chicks exercise.
On the fifth day provide a dry mash
of equal parts hominy, wheat shorts,
rolled oats, for ground oats with the
hulls removed), wheat bran, sifted
beef scraps, and bright yellow cotton
seed meal. Keep this dry mash bp
fore the chicks constantly.
Tf these suggestionp. are followed,
the baby chicks are likely to pass
through the critical period without

TROOPS TO GET OUT OF GER
Coblenz, May 16.-If the Germans
sign the peace terms all the Ameri
can troops, except the third corps and j
three divisions and a few headquar- j
ters units, will be out of the occupied
district of Germany by June 1, or
soon after that date, according to re
ports in circulation in Coblenz.
It is understood that the first, sec
ond and third regular divisions will
be those to remain for the duties in
connection with turning over the area
to French control. If the Germans ac
cept the peace conditions, it is under
stood, preparation will begin imme
diately for the remaining three divi
sions to withdraw to France prepara
tory to embarking for home..
The length of time required to
turn affairs over to the French has
not been determined, but it is esti
mated that it may take perhaps a
month or lonc-er. If the Germans do
not accept, the plans for the with
drawal of the Americans, of course,
will be. changed materially.
General Pershing, when asked by
the correspondent on Monday what
would be the part of the American
army in the event the Germans do
not sign the treaty, said it may be de
pended upon that America will do her
part, whatever that may be.
