"hogging down" farmers fell into dis
favor and dropped the practice to a
Meantime, the labor market was
tightening, and a (lay's work came to
be regarded not so much as something
to be gotten out of the farmer or his
sons or a hired man, but as a period
to be paid for in money that could be
used for other purposes.
The United States Department of
Agriculture and some of the experi
ment stations in corn States have of
late years given careful attention to
the possibilities of feeding stock on
the cafeteria plan. Today it is in use
on hundreds of Corn Belt farms and
in many other localities in all parts of
the country where corn is grown.
logging (lown) corn saves labor,
while causing no more waste than
when the corn is harvested andl hand
fed. Properly managed, it keeps the
hogs in better condition and adds
weight more rapidly. It distributes
manure uniformly. It leaves the
ground in fair condition for the next
crop, and it fits in with a rotation
system admirably adapted to build i)
a run-down farm.

six if you Wish to retain a permanent
pasture. Corn is planted in the first
section and as soon as the kernels
have become hard the hogs are turned
in. As they have been on other feed,
it will take a week or 10 days' feed
ing to get them entirely .on a corn
diet. In the Corn Belt latitude they
may be expected to live entirely in the
corn field from about September 1.0
until the crop is consumed. It is
generally found best not to permit the
hogs range of the entire field, but to
erect temporary fences. These can
easily be built of 25-inch wide wire
mesh, fastened to anchor posts at the
%ids and tied to cornstalks instead of
line posts. If a supplemental crop
such as rape, cowpeas, soy beans, or
even pumpkins, has been sowed among
the corn, it will provide protein feed
which the corn lacks. Pigs easily
leari to pull down the cornstalks for
the ears and waste less than when fed
in the yard.
The following spring the stalks
and trash that remain on the surface
of the field are cut over with a sharp
disk and the ground prepared for a
second crop of corn, which is harvest

Rye Pasture for Hogs in Spring
The rye is used for hog pasture,
from early spring until the stalks be-'
c9me too hard. It will be found
valuable pasture for brood sows with
young pigs. After the pigs cease to
consume the rye they are taken out
and not returned until after'the graip
becomes ripe, when they arte allowed"
to consume the entire croin and graze
on the young clover until time to turn
them into the corn in September.
