Hope, faith and June hog prices
must be kept ever uppermost in the
mind of the man whose pens, this
year, are filled with fall pigs. With
the corn crop estimated by the crop
reporters as 10 per cent short of last
year's, it will be a big temptation to
let the little porkers worry along
through the winter on very light
luncheons. This will be all right if
you can see any profit in having the
survivors come out in the spring look
ing like the shadow of a doubt, but if
they are to bring top prices in June
they must have plenty of food and
good care.
Making a Hog of the Fall Pig
Nature has not provided the little
pig with much protection against the
cold, so dry, comfortable sleeping
quarters are a necessity. A bed un
der the racks in the cattle shed in a
steaming pile of hogs and manure is
quite likely to produce pneumonia, but
not profitable pork. The hog shed
need not be an expensive structure.
The roof and walls should be proof
against the weather. A dry dirt
floor with plenty of straw or shedded
fodder is all that is needed for beds.
The hogs should be kept in small
enough bunches so they will not pile
up at night and come out into the
cold morning air wet with steam.
In feeding the pigs begin by feed
ing the sow well while the pigs are
still with her. Experiments have
proved that pigs never make cheaper
gains than when grain is turned into
milk for them by their mothers. At
the Wisconsin experiment station it
was found that the grain required to
produce 100 pounds gain on the pigs,
when fed through their mothers, cost
$2.21 in the first month and $2.70 in
the second. After weaning, in the
third month, it took $3.44 worth of
grain to produce the same gain. In
the fourth month it took $3.50 worth
and the cost kept on increasing as the
pigs grew older. To get the most ad
vantage, then, of the cheapest gains,
the sows should be fed about all they
will clean up of some good milk-pro
ducing ration.
If skim milk is available, It would
be hard to beat a ration-of one pound
corn to six pounds skim milk for
economy and results. When skim milk
is not at hand a ration of corn and
shorts in the proportion of two
pounds corn to three pounds shorts
has been recommended by the Iowa
experiment station and proved satis
factory by many feeders. The shorts
should be mixed with water in a slop
Apple Rust
Orchards have been unusually free
from blights or rust this year, but not
a little complaint has come to the hor
ticultural department of Iowa State
college concerning what is commonly
known as apple rust. To one com
plaining orchardist, Prof. S. A. Bead
head of the department, wrote the fol
lowing letter:
"Apple rust is a fungus growth
which forms irregular, brownish
patches on the upper surface of (lie
leaf. Commonly these patches have
a yellowish border sometimes tinged
with autumnal red. On the under
side of the leaf may be found clusters
of liny fringed 'cups,' which may be
seen with the naked eye. This fun
gus lives in another form on red ce
dfir trees in the gall which are
called 'cedar apples,' and it is this
red cedar parasite which is respon
sible for the apple rust. After the
foliage has come out in the spring
the 'cedar apples' develop masses of
large, soft gelatinous threads of a
dark orange color, which are imbed
ded in the spores of the fungus. After
the threads become dry, the spores
are easily scattered by the winds and
thus they are spread to the apple
t'ees, where they 'rust' the leaves
and sometimes spot the fruit.
"In view of these facts, it is not sur
prising to learn that good results in
preventing apple rust are often se
cured by cutting down all red cedar
trees near an orchard. The common
experience Is that spraying is of little
effect, although the Nebraska experi
ment station shows that by covering
apple foliage with a spray of Uor
deaux mixture just before the cedar
apple spores become scattered and
again about ten days later, some ben
eficial results were secured in check
ing the disease.
"The Wealthy is one of the varieties
which seems especially susceptible to
this fungus and thereby betrays its
crab parentage."

and it would be better if the water
could be warmed. The corn can just
as well be fed on the ear.
The pigs will soon learn to climb
into the sows' troughs and nibble at
the grain. Then a trough should be
fixed for them in a pen where they
can get at it and eat undisturbed by
the old sows. It will pay to feed them
all they will clean up, as they will
make cheaper gains now than when
they get older, and it will give them
a good start for winter. By the time
they are eight weeks old they can be
weaned so the sows can be bred for
the spring litters.
After weaning they should be con
tinued on the same corn and short
ration until they weigh from 80 to 100
pounds. If cattle are on feed they
can get most of the corn needed by
picking up after the cattle after they
get big enough so they will not be In
danger of being stepped on and kill
ed. After they reach this weight the
proportion of shorts can be cut down
to equal the weight of corn. or. at
present prices, it would give more
economical gains to substitute a good
quality of tankage for the shorts. The
tankage fed in the proportion of one
pound to nine pounds of corn will fur
nish the protein required to keep the
pig growing. It can be fed dry in
troughs. On this feed the shoats
should come through the winter In
good thrifty condition and weigh at
least 150 pounds by April first.
As soon as grass gets a good start,
turn the hogs on pasture. The Iowa
experiment station reports that "in
general the cost of gains on pasture
are from one-tenth to one-sixth less
than on dry feed." The grass can be
depended upon to supply the protein
needed in finishing the pigs and the
tankage can be cut out. Corn should
be fed as fast as the pigs will clean it
up from now on. It would be profit
able to shell it and soak it for twelve
hours before feeding. From experi
ments reported in Bulletin 10 of the
Iowa experiment station it was found
that fall pigs carried over to be fat
tered the following spring were han
dled most profitable by feeding the
corn on the ear until the weather be
came warm enough for soaking corn,
and then feeding soaked shelled corn
on pasture until the finish. Five per
cent of the corn was saved by soak
ing It. Fed in this way the hogs
should be ready for June markets
weighing around 250 pounds, a time
when as a rule such weight hogs are
in demand and bring good prices.

The toe nails are invariably well worn

Hand-Fed Calf.
Where the calf is to be raised by
hand, it may be separated from its
mother immediately, or allowed to
stay with her from 24 to 36 hours.
We find it better to allow the young
ster to take nourishment direct from
its mother for a few times and then
separate them permanently. The first
milk direct from the fresh cow is of
the right temperature and possesses
food qualities of the right sort to start
the digestive organs of the infant calf
in good working order. It does not
spoil the young calf to thus allow it to
remain with the cow for one or two
days, as some think. When it is re
moved it can be taught to drink milk
as easily as when it is only a few
hours old.
Pasturing Meadows.
The practice of pasturing meadows
in autumn is far too common and
when once turned on to are almost
always pastured too long, so that the
succeeding crop is injured, therefore
it is best not to turn in, and if the
grass gets sufficient growth, let the
mowing machine be run over it and
the rowen thus cut be made into hay

Of all the methods that have been
tried for lengthening the life of fence
posts, the creosote is both cheapest
and best. It meets practically all the
requirements of a good preservative.
The fungus that destroys the life of a
good post must have air, light, moist
ure and food In order to live. When
creosote is properly used it robs the
fungus of all these necessities. It will
penetrate the wood, it will poison the
food materials of the fungus, and it
will not leach out to any considerable
The method of treating is very sim
ple after the outfit is once obtained,
cost' would not be very much if a num
ber of farmers would co-operate and
put up a plant in the community. The
greatest expense would be the tanks.
The first, or heating tank, ought to be
made of sheet iron at least three-six
teenths of an inch thick. It should be
seven and one-half feet high and four
feet in diameter. The bottom should
be of stronger material while the
top may be the same as the sides. The
tank should be set on rocks or brick
pins so a fire can b'e built under it.
If possible tha location of such a tank
ought to be on a side hill where the
handling of the posts would be made
easier. The second or cooling tank
need not be as strong as the first.
A tank seven feet high and four feet
in diameter will answer the purpose.
When ready to treat about 15 inches
of creasote should be put In each tank,
the fire started and the tank over the
fire charged with posts which should
be peeled and seasoned in all cases.
If the posts are to be set two and one
half feet in the ground then the oil
should come up at least three feet on
the posts. After the posts have been
heated four to five hours in the oil at
200 degrees P., they should be trans
ferred to the cooling tank and left
from six to ten hours, depending on
the hardness of the wood and the
amount of creosote it is desired to nut
