MENT. . For many years past the Whites
and Blacks have reigned in peace in
the United States, but about thrcc
quartcis of a century ago the Red
Skins became noticeable, and today
they arc becoming very numerous
and their fame is fast spreading over
the .West, especially is our state
awakening to the fact that these
creatures merit all that is claimed for
These Red Skins arc the. famous
Duroc Jersey swine, which arc fast
becoming the butchers' favorite. Ever
since ioo.j, butchers have paid con
siderable more for this breed, or even
grades, than any other class of pork.
There are now five families of red
pigs; namely, Red Berkshire, Thm
worth, Duroc, Jersey Reds, and Duroc
Jerseys. The Duroc Jersey is a
cross upon the Duroc and the Jersey
The Durocs onigtmatcd in New York
State many years ago, and arc a fat,
blocky pig, while the Jersey Reds arc
more rangy and came from New Jer
sey about fifty years ago. In 1877
breeders cf Duroc and Jersey Reds
met and adopted! a standard for their
breeds and this standard is now used
by the National Duroc Jersey Record
Association, and is as follows:

Among Utah's most prominent
breeders is Mr. Is R. Peart, Cornish,
Utah, who, upon request, kindly gives
some of his experience with the Dur
oc Jerseys.
"I have been breeding Duroj: Jer
sey swine for more than five years
and find themi to do better under my
treatment than any pthcr breed I
have tried. They excel all others as
mothers', farrowing not less than sev
en and up to sixteen, arc very kind !
and gentle generally saving all their
litter, and arc splendid foragers. They
arc very deep, good length, extra
good hams and shoulders, and for
quality of meat they have no equal
(so say the butchers.) Under good
care, my pigs haivc weighed at 6
iiuonths, 250 pounds-, at one year 400
pounds, at 18 months, 600 pounds."
