Tennessee Pig Club Boys Make Fine Record ' V : -V Davidson County Youth. Wins First Place. Nearly 2000 Enrolled - There were UBT4 boys enrolled In the pig dubs In Tennessee in 1921. Reports showing the results acoon pllshed by 893 boys were collected by the county agricultural agents. They fattened 499 hogs for the market and raised 554 purebred gilts to be used as brood sows. From 169 sows raised the previous yar, a total ol 2,597 pigs were farrowed. This Included a spring and fall litter from each sow making an average of 7 pigs to each litter. Reports of this kind are convincing that the value of the pig club work is Inestimable. A few boys are being given an insight into the work of pro ducing purebred swine for breeding stock. Large numbers are improving the stock kept oiv small farms and are using this Improved stock for greater and more economical pork pro- j duction. j " - i III III II I" EXTRA Pre-Easter Sale 0f51 50 High Grade Hart Schaffner and Marx v $37.50,1 $40.00 and $45.00 Men's Suits MMMMMMMk AT 3T" jv W S"V. Summer Sanders and His Cham pion Pig. He Won First Place in the State Pig Club Contest and Won Free Trip to International Livestock Show at Chicago. Since a great many purebred hogs have been produced the past few years in the pig clubs the general (Trade of hogs in many localities has been materially improved. As a re sult of this, the boys have learned that well bred hogs are niore suitable for pork production In the same way that they are better for breeding stock. It' Is believed now that the greatest opportunity for the pig club boy Is In the production of pork, and their interest is gradually turning in chat direction. ' At practcally every county and dis trict fair last fall there was an in creased number of pork pigs shown by club members. One hundred .club members In Montgomery County fat tened a carload of club pigs and shipped them to the market. It cost $1,412 to produce the hogs and eet them to market, while they sold for ?1,&S, leaving a net profit of $526. j.iie siace pig ciud contest was open only to the boys who raised pork pigB.

MORE: FOR CAS1 91 PRODUCTION OF BEEF CATTLE INCREASING A change Is coming over the busi ness of beef production. The farmers of Tennessee are more and more tak ing up this great Industry that for many years was accorded to the range districts of the west. The conditions influencing this change have been tat tag shape for a number of years and will continue for no brief period. The farmer for the benefit of his farm and the safety of his bank account is rais ing cattle. It is the safest course. It will Increase the fertility of his acres. It will insure "money in band." As yet there are thousands of farms that have not become a part of the expanding effort in beef produc tion, but the tendency is in the right direction. Beef production on the farm iq, on the increase and happily the value of good blood has been "gen erally acknowledged so that the quali ty of the product will make its appeal to the more discriminating buyers. The farmers must be producers rather than speculators. A good many reasons exist for this, not the least of which is that of permanency and the betterment of the soil and the im provement of the farm. The oppor tunities for expansion are found large ly on the home farm or in the home community. The days of alluring opportunities elsewhere have passed. From now on It is constructive effort that will win. Speculative opportuni ties are remote and uncertain but in telligent, persistent effort on the good farms of Tennessee beckons to all who own or operate the land. Beef production plays its fundamen tal part In this permanent farm prosperity.
