FALL PIGS ARE PROFiTAlIE
IF WELL FED AND CARED FOR
Feed Sow Sparingly at First, but
Bring to Full Feed In Ten Days
Young Pigs Must Have Plenty of
Fxercise-Good Pasture is Impor
Two litters of pigs a year from one
sow is usually practicable, and adds
materially to the success of the farm
project, the United States Department
of Agriculture has demonstrated.
Spring pigs should be farrowed early
in March in order to finish for market
in the early winter. Fall pigs usually
are timed to arrive in September
which gives them a chance to get welf
started before 'cold weather arrives.
After farrowing and before placing
the pigs with the sow to nurse, cut out
the eight small tusklike teeth at the
sides of the mouth. These are very
sharp and might tear the sow's ud
der or cause pigs to hurt each other
at nursing time. They can be broken
with bone forceps, wire nippers, or a
knife, but should never be pulled out.
Give Sow Water but no Food
As a rule the sow should not be fed
for the first 24 hours after farrowing'
but should be given a liberal drink of
water. If the woather is cold the wat
er should be slightly warmed. A thin
slop of bran and middlings may be
given if she shows actual signs of
hunger. The feeding for the first
three or four days should be light and
the time consumed in getting the sow
on full feed should b- from a week to
Great c.re shoild be taken to feed
the sow properly, or the little pigs
will show it. If they follow the sow,
around and pull at the terts constant
ly, it shows she is not giving enough
milk and more f ed should be given
her to btimulate its flow. On the
other hand, overfeeding is bad, as it
tends to congest the utler, which will
cause scouring in the young pigs.
It is best for the sow and litter to
be in the open, where exercise, sun
light, and fresh air act beneficially for
all of them. Even in cold weather
tl.cy may be able to get exercise in a
lot sheltered by a building and at the
snie time be in the sunshine. Do not
ellow the little pigs to be .out in a
cold rain, and always provide clean
and dry floors in the pens. If the pigs
do not get exercise they may become
fat and lazy. The best way to avoid
this is not to overfeed and to compel
the young pigs to take pienty of exer
It is of the greatest importance in
raising pigs for the market that they
gaim weight *as rapidly as possible.
The first opportunity to force the pigs
comes when they are a few weeks old.
Up to this time they have been livingr
solely on their dam's milk, for which
no Ierfect substitute has been found.
A fter about three weeks the young
pigs begin to develop an appetite for
some accessory feed to supplement
the sow's milk, and they should be
given some additional food. 'The pigs
will eat from the sow's trough, but it,
is better that a pen or "creep" be ar
ranged adjoining that of the sow, al
lowinw the pigs to have access to a
self-teeder in which shelled corn alone
is fed for a couple of weeks an1d
afterwards shorts or wheat middlings.
Excellent feeds for pigs of this age
are dairy by-products, such as skim
milk or buttermilk. These, together
with Imnill feeds, as middli ings, shorts,
and even a cheap grade (if flour, or
with ground oats Iroilm which the hulls

Pigs should be castrated while ther
are young, preferably when (i to 8
