A SYSTEMATIC HOO ROTATION
There is nothing that gives thi
farmer more clear profit than hogs, if
i they are cared for in the right way
The rotation plots not only furnish
oil feed for the hogs at a small cost, but
a the land on which these crops grow is
it made better each day, and soon we
th find that the crop yield is more than
ws doubled. This, of course, is due to the
his fact that all the crops grown on the
m land is returned to the soil in the shape
of manure, and if the crops are sys
aen, tematically arranged, legumes have
all. been planted that filled the soil with
edy nitrogen, the most expensive fertil
in izer that we have to buy.
hen During the past few months we have
rel sold cooperatively three/light cars of
and hogs that netted the farmers more
than $4,000.00. Had the cars been full
de the return would have been at least
agi $6,000.00. The cooperative plan gives
dise the pan with one hog the same ad.
vantage as the fellow with 50 head.
1\' It is now time to plan definitely fo
Ihel the spring crops. Each farmer should
twe plan his on crops, but a few general
ane points will apply to all. Oats, Rye,
and Rape will always do well as graz
Jin ing crops. Rape will furnish as mud
grazing as any thing that could be
tee planted in roh's, or some broadcast
the Rape will furnish excellent grazing un
til it gets too warm, and then the plot
lock can Ie planted to some other crop.
dagc Corn, peas, soybeans, peanuts, vel
vet beans, potatoes, sorghum etc., will
icted furnish the summer and fall grazing
loral if they are arranged right. Early corn
tiful and New Era peas will furnish graz
it of lug early in July, and will greatly re
lov duce the feed bill. A patch of Squashes
1 un- planted near the pasture, can be easily
thrown to the hogs with profit.
