* The ,Hog Problem as Viewed by *
Ono of Limited! Means. *
In view of the wide ntitest .now
displayed in the raising of hogs, I will
give a few observations as a result of
my own experience. TAking first the
breed of hog to 'be selected, I will say
that the individual taste. will govorn
largely in' this, though personally I
prefer the Essex breed. . The Berk
shire, the Durock-Jersey, the Poland
China and the Essex a'ro all good.
breeds and will thrive- well in this
country If given proper attention. The
reason I am partial to the Essex Is be
cause of some special characteristics
which I think make them very valua
ble to a small farmer. They are fine
mothers, good hustlers for their own
living, have good fattening qualities
at any age and.with me have never
turned out to be chicken eaters. Il
fact the only drawback to the Essex
is its low breeding qualities. You
nted not expect more than one litter
of pigs a year. However, I had a gilt
one year old to farrow ten pigs and
raise them all.
I know that the danger of cholera
always enters into the question of
raising hogs. I think that cholera is
du1e largely to improper care, and can
1be avoided. With dry, warm shelter
in winter, clean of dust, with oats, rye
or something to graze upon, then 1er
niuda grass with running water in the
summer time to pasture upon I see no
reason why our county should not
raise all the pork that is needed with
in its bounds and then have some to.
spare. The idea that many I'ossess
that a hog thrives mgct in fllth and
dirt is all wrong. The cleaner his
surroundings the healthier he will be
and consequently the more flesh he
will put on.
I have written this in the holie that
it will be of some benefit to my broth
er farmers. Please do not take it as
being boastful or even critical. I
would like to hear from others, those
wlw. 'believe that I am on the right
track and those who might differ with
My next contribution, if I write
again, will be on feed or grazing
Yours for success,
W. P. Todd,
Barksdale, S. C.
