national figure and his lecture en the

ever, to all classes of people, and is
delivered in a manner that appeals
to you. His homely sayings and word
pictures are wonderfully drawn and
holds one from the time he starts
til he closes. He talked two hours
and could have held his audience
other hour easy. It is too bad that
a bigger audience was not present.
An intellectual treat does not seem

Possibilities of the Industry Pointed

on reclamation projects,
where forage and grain crops are the
chief crops are urged by the depart
ment to consider very carefully the
possibilities of raising hogs
means of converting crops into pro
ducts which will bear transportation
charges. An investigation of this
problem on the North Platte reclama
tion project, in western Nebraska and
eastern Wyoming, has led to the con
clusion that the swine industry can be
extended with great profit to the
community. Similar conditions it is
believed prevail on a number of other
On the North Platte, it is stated in
a report on this subject, there ap
pears to be no reason why the annual
exportation of hogs should not be de
veloped to a point where the result
ing revenue will represent an import
ant part of the farmers' receipts from
their crops. The demonstration work
which has already been conducted
with a view to extending and improv
ing the swine industry will, therefore
be continued. In particular, attention
is being bestowed upon arousing the
farmers to the necessity of commun
ity action in controlling hog cholera.
There is also, it is said, room for im
provement in feeding and housing
methods. Better results would be ob
tained if more grain were produced
and fed in connection with alfalfa
In 1913 about 55 per cent of the
crop acreage on the North Platte pro
ject was devoted to alfalfa and about
32 per cent to grain. As in the case
of many of the other reclamation pro
jects, the cost of transportation from
the North Platte region to the large
market centers is so high that the
price paid to farmers for hay and
grain leaves only a small margin
of profit. In 1913 for example, the lo
cal price of alfalfa was from $3 to $5
a ton, and for different grains from 40
cents to 70 cents per bushel. Experi
ments conducted at the experiment
farm that year showed that alfalfa
when pastured by hogs had a value
equivalent to $35 a ton and that when
corn was hogged off its value as a
feed was from 90 cents to $1 a bush
el. These figures made it obvious that
it was, in general, more profitable for
the farmers on the project to convert
their alfalfa and corn into pork than
to attempt to dispose of them directly.
Local conditions also favor the de
velopment of the swine industry. For
age crops and grains can be produced
cheaply and abundantly,
tively little capital Is needed to
a start in the business, the returns
come promptly, and the swine popula
tion increases rapidly. Under these
conditions the four chief factors of
success In hog raising are declared
(1) The standardization of breeds
in the community.
(2) The adoption of satisfactory
methods of breeding, feeding, housing
(3) Adequate control of diseases.
(4) Community co-operation.
In developing these requisites, the
department has worked in co-opera
tion with the University of Nebraska
and the Nebraska State Live Stock
Sanitary Board. This
work has apparently borne good fruit,
for the number of hogs on the pro
ject rose from 14,000 on November 1,
1913, to 22,241 on November 1, 1914,
an increase of approximately 60 per
cent. In addition, a large number of
farmers have expressed their inten
tion of entering the business, and
many of those who now have herds are
planning to increase their size. There
are it is said, ample facilities for
producing all the feed that is nece
sary for four or five times as many
hogs as are now being grown.
About 10 per cent of the hogs on
the project are pure-bred and about
90 per cent grades of a fairly good
type. By far the greatest number are
,Duroc-Jerseys and, under the cir
cumstances, this breed is advocated
for the project because the uniform
adoption of one particular breed will
facilitvte improvements and econo
mies. Poland Chinas hire also been
found to do well but they are in the
great minority at present

It is a common practice to raise two
litters a year, and this proves satis
occur in the fall litters during cold
weather. Fall pigs can be wintered
at comparatively low cost, but they
should be farrowed sufficiently early
to make a good growth before cold
weather. The following year they
can be economically fattened on grain
and alfalfa pasture and marketed soon
after midsummer. Spring pigs can ob
tain most of their growth from al
falfa pasture, with a 2 to 3 per cent
ration of grain increased in the /all.
In this way they can be finished for
market before Christmas.
An acre of alfalfa furnishes ample
grazing for twelve 100-pound shoats,
but with proper methods more can be
carried. The best results are obtain
ed from dividing the pasture into two
parts, using each' alternately. Ex
cessive pasturage -ho'ild be avoided
at all times. It is best to provide

down closely and to Clip the pasture
when the general alfalfa crop is cut.
When a grain ration of 3 pounds a
day for each 100 pounds of live weight
is fed, the most advantageous returns
from an acre of alfalfa are apparent
ly secured. With ordinary prices for
grain a 2 to 3 per cent ration can be
Corn is the principal grain used to
supplement alfalfa pasture and hay.
While the average yield in 1914 on the
project was only 15^ bushels per acre
a large number of farmers secured a
yield of 40 bushels and a few of
than 60 bushelB. Those farmers who
tried hogging down the corn in 1914
report very satisfactory results. This
method is an inexpensive way of har
vesting the corn, and it also adds a
considerable quantity of fertilizer to

lished by the Department of Agricul
ture of the demonstration work on the
project, this method is strongly recom
mended for general adoption. The use
Vt self feeders is also recommended

Denver is the chief market for the
fat hogs raised on the project, about
two-thirds of which are shipped by
the farmers themselves and one-third
sold to local buyers. Co-operative
shipping, It is said, might be profit
ably practiced to a greater extent than
it now is.
The chief problem, however, con
fronting hog raisers on the project
is the control of disease. The natural
conditions are such, it is said that the
health of the animals should be good
and their quarters easily maintained
in a sanitary condition. On the oUier
hand, the universal use of irrigation
water furnishes a ready channel for
disseminating disease and the only
way of overcoming this danger is by
means of community co-poeraUon.
Hog cholera appeared on the project
in 1913 and was widespread early In
1914. The campaign against the dis
ease was directed (1) toward the se
curing and enforcing of a quarantine
order; (2) to securing prompt reports
of all outbreaks in order to treat the
hogs in the infected hedrs; and (3)
to improving sanitary condition. Hogs
which showed visible symptoms of
sickness were either killed or placed
in a quarantine pen in order to pre
vent tjiem from spreading infection.

from July 1 to December 31, 1914, 4,887

which is not treated frequently

estimated at $2,400 and the saving at

alone provides immunity for from 30
to 90 days only, and unless
sanitary measures are taken, reinfec
tion is almost certain to follow. The
simultaneous treatment In which both
virus and serum are Injected Is open
to the objection that in incompetent
hands it may spread the disease. This
treatment should therefore be admin
istered only by experienced persons.
Since a diseased herd is a menace to
all the neighbors, the control of hog
cholera is distinctly a community mat
ter and neighborhood organizations
are recommended as an efficient way
of dealing with the problem. In fact
the swine industry as a whole, it is
said, should be regarded as a commun
ity affair. There are many ways in
which it will be profitable to all
cerned for the farmers on a project to
