We all know that in every little ofI
pigs, if that little contains an average
number or more, that at least one of
these pigs will almost surely be of
small size and very likely of poor
qualities. It is very evident that such
a pig should not be used -as a breed
er, but why not go much farther than
this and select only the very best to
be the mothers of future generations
of all domestic animals, and this se
lection should not only include ques-i
tions of size but oth-ers as follows:
First, poor feeders and producers.
How many farmers know just how!
much milk or butter their cows give
each year? They may possibly bel
able to give a fair guess as to the
amount of milk, but almost never do:
they know anything about the amount
of butter they are capable of making,
unless they have -but one cow and
therefore churn the cream from that
A cow capable of making only 150i
pounds of butter each year is of no
value in a dairy, for the butter could
be bought for -the value of her feed,i
but if the same cow could make 300
pounds of butter, she would then be
a valuable animal both as a butter!
producer and as a breeder.
Again, we want to be careful to
keep only the good breeders. We all;
know that many of the animals we!
possess are shy breeders, as seen by~
the small little o~f pigs, or the small
number of lambs in a flock, etc.
If we keep the small pigs from such
litters or lambs from such flocks, wei
shall increase this difiiculty, for all~
future generations are likely to have:
this fault to a still greater degree.
In like manner, let us use males that
are in .full vigor, not the very young
or old, for while their young r'ay be'
good and profitable animals, yet we
should :thereby reduce the ch'anbes of
getting the most desirable.
Yet another item -to keep in mind -
is to use as breeders the normal ani
mals, those that have no peculiarities
that should not be expected in thatj
bi'ged, for even if they are not ob-,
jectionable in themselves, they show
a tendency toward abnormal develop
ment and in future generations we!
should expeat other qualities -might
appear and the breedirng become very
To sum up, select for breeding the
animals fhat are normal of the~ breed,
neither too large nor too small and
with the qualities of that particulari
breed strongly developed. Animals!
that are old enough butt not too old sto
be in full vigor. Those that have
proven 'their powers to produce wdll,
as the c ow in giving milk or butter,
the hog in producing pork, the sheep
for wool and mutton.
Good feeders. If they cannot con-!
sumo and digest a large amount of,
food, we cannot get a large return
i-n products, hence -such must be chos
en. Discard ,any with undesiraDle
ualities, of whate ver nature. Some.
uniformity of color is desirable, not!
because it is essential, but it is easy
to attain, and herds and fic'cks that
are similar in this respect are a.
pleasure to the breeder.
