One of their studies was to determine the difference in cost of pork production in summer and win •ft Keeping Cl ter. In these trials all of the various feeding stuffs available in the country were used, and when such feeds as skimmllk, whey, roots,- etc., were em ployed they were reduced to their grain equivalent in calculating the re suits in order that the data could be easily compared. To throw further light on the matter the animals were separated into three groups according to their live weight In all at least 2,500 pigs were fed in these experi ments, so that we may place full reli ance on the average secured. The re sults summarized are shown in the fol lowing table, which is condensed from "Feeds and Feeding:" Feed consumed for 100 pounds in crease with pigs in winter and in sum mer, Copenhagen station. 397 Period of growth Feed (grain equivalent) for 100 lb. grain. Winter. and average weight of pigs— Summer. 240 371 35 to 75 lb.. I 75 to 115 lb. ns to 155 lb | . | Averages ] From the above we learn that where ■ 400 pounds of feed made 100 pounds of ! gain in summer 444 pounds were re quired for the same gain in winter. The difference is forty-four pounds, or ! 11 per cent. These ligures art* for Dan i ish conditions. In that country the ! winters art* less severe than in the 446 457 516 400 444 ! northern United States, and the sum I mers are cooler. Under the circum stances we may reasonably conclude i that It requires more than 11 per cent I more feed for a given gain with pigs i in winter than in summer in this coun try. says Professor Henry in American I Swineherd. Skimmllk For Plgn. Oats, bran and shorts are good mus cle making foods, but for weaning pigs there is nothing equal to skim ! milk. Many farmers seem of the opin j ion that it is not profitable to raise two I litters, the principal reason being tliat they cannot be made to grow material ly during cold weather. Up to date dairymen have learned of the impor tance of taking good cure of their cows j in winter, and if an equal amount of j care and attention is given the pigs : they cannot help but grow from No i vember till April. I Corn and Hogn. Although the pig will eat almost any 1 thing, his favorite food is Indian com. This is the « reatest corn country in the world and is acC0 rdingiy the best i country for raising pork. In wbat is 1 known as the great corn belt more ! farmers have become wealthy by rais ! ing hogs than by any other branch of ^ industry. I Keep Them Dry. . Are the hogs kept dry at this season? I If they are running out they must ! have protection. I have never before ! been so Impressed with the necessity and effect of vitality in a service boar, says H. E. Look in National Stockman. We are using a large Yorkshire, not an i ideal prize winner, just one of those •j hogs that would pass as a "good bog." Such vitality and vigor I have never before seen. An ordinary fence ls a plaything for him. In working form he can jump and run. him until his get began to develop. From both old and young sows ten is an average litter, nearly every pig "strong, active and hearty from birth to slaughter. No weak points. These hogs are using more food per 100 pounds of weight than the quiet Berk shire, but the size of litter and freedom from indisposition more than stand as an offset. Vitality and vigor are the foundation of profit in animal breed I did not like iior Stek Piff®. A writer to an English exchange says: "While a pick Pte ls generally hard to cure there lire many remedies prescribed for hog ailments. I have only one remedy for a sick hog. and it Jg R very simple one. Rheumatism, p ara lysis, blind staggers, thumps, scours, etc.. I treat all alike, though in varying proportions. My cure a or panacea is nothing n 10ie a " new milk and turpent ne. o pig, say six weeks old. 1 administer a teaspoonful of turpentine in a half Unless the pig is very If too invUClu*»* pint of milk. sick it will readily drink this. to drink it must be adminis Au older pig. how ever, will seldom refuse new milk, even when a tablespoonful of the turpentine I always far gone tered with a spoon. is given in a quart or more, keep a supply of turpentine on hand, and when there is anything wrong with the pigs at once give a dose of turpentine and new milk. It is the best remedy I know of for all the ills that piga are heir to. from a teaspoonful for six weeks old to a tablespoouful or more for a The milk may be given ad Grade the dose ma ture hog. libitum or as much as the pig will take to drink freely.' Pasture For OreetHnjç Swine. Swine, mule and female, intended for breeding purposes should be given good grain pasture with plenty of room for exercise, but should have very lit tie fattening food, says an exchange. There is nothing bettor than growing alfalfa. If they can be turned into a field of cowpeas and fed a little wheat or shorts they will do just what is wanted. That is. they will grow rap idly and be healthy and strong. If with such treatment they take on too much fat shorten the feed a little. You don't want fat hogs for breeders, but large frames, with plenty of muscle and a digestive system that will take on fat rapidly, provided you conclude to make pork of any of them. A urcat r,rch,ron stallion. Onaugiste (gray), whose picture is here reproduced, was foaled in 1899. He was winner of first at Nogent-le j i wwm km 41« m H m m n 1 Rotrou and Nantes, France, in 1901; first at Montagne, France, in 1902; grand championship at Ohio State fair of 1902 and first at International in 1902. He was imported by McLaughlin Bros, and sold for $5.000. Sheey In Montana. About twenty-five years ago the first band of sheep was taken Into Montana, and this small flock has increased til now, according to the department of agriculture's figures, 6,290.000 sheep in the state, than one-seventh of the whole number In the United States. In the year 1901 there were 8.000.000 lambs added to tbe fiocks of Montana, and 14,000.000 pounds of wool un there are over or more were produced at an average of 13.48 cents per pound. The state board of sheep commissioner Wyoming has just published a report showing the total number of sheep the state on July 1 last to be 6.724,476, which is a large increase over the pre vious year. The wool clip for the year amounted to 32,963.130 pounds, an in crease of 3.000,000 pounds over 1901 From these figures it will be seen that Wyoming now ranks first states and territories iu tlon. of in among tin wool produe-
