In Natural State,
' "Where stock eat the grain in its
satnral and unbroken state, it is very
seldom masticated as thoroughly as it
should be. Most animals are natur

consume grain they swallow much oi

in their efforts to convert this coarse
.feed into substance that will build up
the tissues of the body.
Aside from these two detriments we

?anses a waste by passing whole and
practically unchanged through the
animal; or, if the stock do eat an
amount large enough from which suf
ficient nourishment can be extracted,
lt means about twice as much must

muscular tissue.
The failure of the stock to masti
cate unground grain will also cause
a lack of digestive secretions or juices

order to supply this deficiency, the
animals have a craving for water and

On the other hand, where the grain
is ground before feeding, it is fine and

Nothing of Moro Importance Than
Feeding at Least Cost-Excellent
for All Live Stock.
While the hog is a debt payer, it ls
necessary for the breeder, farmer or
feeder to manage so as to make the
greatest amount of money at the least
cost in the quickest time, says the
American Swineherd. To do this there
is nothing of more importance than
feeding alfalfa. The Illinois Farmer's
institute states that alfalfa is the most
important single product of the soil, a
product that has been neglected to
the detriment of every community.
Alfalfa as a storage plant for general
use has no equal. It is easily grown,
it is hardy under trying circumstances,
and while it is an excellent food for
all kinds of stock, and especially the
hog, it at the same time through natur
al process improves the soil by draw
ing from the atmosphere nitrogen.
Alfalfa is a gold mine which can be
worked most successfully by the use of
swine feeding.
