Secretary. Use Rabbit Meat. The following use of rabbit meat might be of interest to Curry county farmers as rab bits in many sections are becom ing numerous. A rancher living near Dem ing has made a discovery and put it into practise whereby a 100 pound pig is made to pro duce 200 pounds of excellent sausage, according to a report by way of Belen. The farmer had been overrun by jack rabbits which were so numerous that tight wire fencing would only keep them out for a few days at a time. Finally, he decided to try rabbit meat as an adul terant for pork sausage and the idea proved successfully. Half pork and half rabbit makes a sausage that cannot be told from all pork, and if anything. has an improved flavor. . The ranchman says that he is able to gather a hundred pounds of rabbit meat in two hours with a shotgun.
