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
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

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.

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.
