SHELTER AND DRY
BEDDING SAVE FEED
Food Used to Maintain Body Tempers.
ture Cannot Add to Weight
of Animal.
Shelter and dry bedding are impor.
tent factors in finishing off hogs for
market, especially during these days of
costly feed, according to E. L. Jordan,
professor of animal industry, Louisiana
State University. If a large percent
age of food has to be used to maintail
the body temperature, thereissomucn
less available for increasing the ani
mal's weight. If the hogs are obliged
to lie in the mud during a period of
cold rains, it will be impossible for
them to consume enough food to main
tain the body temperature, and a loss
of fat already deposited in the body
will be the result. Certainly no think
ing farmer will fail to realize wh: t
this means, nor will he fail to provid
shelter and dry bedding for his hoi a
when he considers that the value ,f
these two factors may easily equ I
one-half that of the feed. In oth,
words, ten barrels of corn fed to fat.
tening hogs in dry, comfortable quarr
ters will produce as much, and fre
quently more, gain than twenty barrels
.fed in mud and filth.
