Some Profitable Crops for Hogs. How to <»et the Most Out of Your Porn Prop ami Make Plteaper Pork. (Yops to Plant, When ami Hon. What Is corn worth In the form of ! pork? That is a question of great j importance to everybody who wishes to grow pork. Much will depend on how* the corn Is fed, whether by Itself or In connection with other feeds, j When corn l*» fed i*l«*ne, forfy-cent j c<»r« will make four-rent |*»rk; fifty rent corn will make flve-cent p»»rk; j «»i*ly-cont corn will make »l\-crnt pork; wont y-cent corn will make *-e%en-cent pork. Those figures are the averages of a number of tests In which a total of 134 pigs were used, and the total number of testa was twenty-one. Two of the test* were at th«* T*'\as Station, three at the Tenn«*sso«\ four at the Alabama, two at the Indiana, one at the Oklahoma, one at the Iowa, and eight at the Wisconsin Station. There were vari ations In the results at the different •stations, but the variations do not fa vor any one section of the country, and the average* given above can be accepted by the farmer as near what he will get In the form of pork by feeding corn alone to hogs 1 Hki \m Pay fr» Fees! (Viro Alo»r If marketed at the right season corn haa for several years heen worth In the South something like seventy cents per bushel It |s evident, then, that It does not pay to feed corn alone to hog* but that In no way prevents the grower from getting a large price for his corn when fed to hl» own hogs If other suitable feeds ac company the corn Bulletin No 143 of the \lahama Station, which waa reviewed In our last Issue shows that when corn alone was fed the results were poor financially and the dally gains were small When corn was supplemented with * partial ration of cottonseed meal, the financial re turns and the dally gains were satis factory: hut four deaths occurred a* the ro«Mj|t of the use of cottonseed meal Tankage, a parking house by product. was evreedlngly satisfactory as a supplement to corn ft was al most a* satisfactory as cottonseed meal, and has the decided advantage over the meal that there Is no danger In feeding It When corn was sup piemen(«*d with a ration of one-half fowpeaa fthe seed), the result was marc satisfactory than when corn waa fed alone, valuing the peat at eighty rent* a bushel. The pea* were* for row pe«*. $25 a ton for cotton* weed meal, and $10 a ton for tnnkage. (•razing Any Crop With |*lgw Im prove* Mml.
