In thes; days when labor la high and also scarce on many farms, the hog may afford “away out.” Hogs utilize refuse and waste grains, dam aged grains, and garbage; garnering grain behind cattle or shattered grain In harvest fields; and utilising slaugh terhouse by-products and dairy by products. They are also largely self feeders. The modern farm "cafeteria" gives a pig a chance to’ make a hog of himself more quickly than be can by the hand-fed route, and It has the added merit of being the cheapest Healthy and Vigorous Porkers. way of producing pork. A sow when she Is not developing a litter or nurs ing pigs, can in summer time be placed In a pasture and given very little grain. In winter, possibly the cheapest maintenance ration Is a com bination of grain and hay, such as corn, wheat, rye or hurley, and alfalfa, clover, cowpeas or soy beau hay. The grain should be limited to one or two pounds j>er hundred pounds live weight per day. Sows should be given all the bay they will clean up. MARKETING OF BROOD SOWS Good Animals Sometimes Sacrificed When Little Forethought Would Cause Retention. At this time the markettng of e flow that can he or hue been bred Is fairly comparable to "killing the goose that laid the golden egf." Although „ tka fecundity of swtaa la well Appre ciated by farmers, at times sows ere nacMflced when a little forethought would cause them to be retained. Breeding sows multiply five or sli times ns rapidly as other meat ani mals. They have an average Utter of five or si* pigs and may be bred twice a year, although three times In two years accords more with current farm practice. The Utters increase In Size, on the average, until eow# nre five or el* years old. However, a large pro portion of the sows ere sold after pro ducing ono or two Utters and before they have reached the period of great eet productivity. VALUE OF SILAGE FOR SHEEP Reduces Coat of Raising Animal and Supplies Suoculenoe, Palatablllty and Variety. The addition of allage to rations for nil classes of sheep reduces their cost and supplies succulence, puiufuhility and variety. Likewise, rotten, moldy, •sour or frozen silage should not be used. Pregnant owes should receive from three to four pounds per head dally during the winter. This should be supplemented with two or three ounces per head dally of cottonseed cake and some bay. After the lambs are born silage Increases the milk flow of the ewea. In the fattening of lambs and yearlings for market the cheapest gains have usually been made when silage constituted a part of the ration. Rums winter well on silage as a pert of their feed. HIGH QUALITY ALFALFA HAY Very Necessary to Lower Coet of Car tying Brood Bow Through Winter; Feed In Rack. Alfalfa hay of a high quality, which may be supplied in a rack, for brood aows Is very necessary to lower the cost of carrying her through the win ter. In the alfalfa hay we not only get a large amount of calcium which Is so essential and which la deficient In wheat bran, shorts and barley, but we get a large amount of protein of the right kind. She must not be ex pected, however, to live on alfalfa alone, as that Is too bulky. It should be supplemented with a small allow ance of concentrates dally. This may be In the form of barley, wheat aborts, etc., qr better than those alone Is a mixture of barley and shorts, for Instance In equal parts.
