corn as a food for brood sows that
many feeders omit It entirely, substi
tuting more expensive feeds. This is
unnecessary. Corn la one of the best
feeds that can be obtained for the
bnsis of the ration. It fs rich In heat

stuff. The mistake in feeding corn
comes in feeding it exclusively. Some
foodstuff rich in protein should bo
fed with it, as this element is needed
in considerable quantities in tho pro
duction of young.
Feeding the Brood Sow.
Some succulent and loosening feed
should also be given to keep tho bowels
in order when the sows aro not on
grass. There is no feed that will take
the place of grass for brood sows, but
it is ol course impossible to obtain
this In whiter. A little silage may be
fed. although it should not be given
in largo amounts. Pumpkins, squashes
and roots of all klrds are excellent. It

feed can be stored. It the true value.
of this vegetable adjunct were under
stood properly it would be seen at once
how Important it is to provide a way
to keep u Btore of these aids to diges
tion for winter use.
Hogs have small stomachs and are
more adapted to grain than to rough
age, yet the mistake of giving the feed
in too concentrated a form should not
be made. A little bran will dilute the
heavier feeds. Cut clover or alfalfa
hay may be used for the same pur
pose. A hayrack built at one side of
the pen and kept filled with good
clover hay is a good thing. The sows
will cat targe amounts of it and relish
it. The feed of brood sows should
be given dry or slightly moistened,
nevpr In the form of 11 slop. Pigs from
slop fed sows ure overlnrgp. are born
with difficulty and are weak aud flabby.
Where plenty of sklmmllk can be hud
it makes uu excellent addition to the
ration. It is more especially a feed for
young pigs than for brood sows, how
ever. The followlug are a few rations
for brood sows that have given good

at the rate of uiie-hulf to three-quarters

of the sows. If some of the sows tend

a valuable addition to iiu f these r.i
tlons. As farrowing time approaches a
little oil meal, about five pounds to 100
pounds of the other feed, may be add
ed to the ration to advantage.
Plenty of fresh water is essential for
the brood sows and the other hogs ns
well at nil seasous of the year. If the
farm is equipped with a water system.
so that water can be piped directly to
the hog house, it will be a great con
venience. In the summer barrels or
small tanks with automatic wntcrers
attached furnish a constant supply of
Care at Farrowing Time.
A few days before the sow Is due to
farrow she should bo given n pen by
herself, so that she may become ne
rustomed to it nnd feel at home when
farrowing time comes. Bed the pen
with good clean straw, but do not use
Ion much of It. as the ligs will be
more likely to get tangled up nnd lain
on. If the sow is inclined to be rest
less fenders about eight Inches high
around the pen help to prevent her
from lying on the pigs. The feed
should be gradually reduced until the
last day before farrowing, when the

eow should be given nothing but w
brau mash with a little ollmeal added
This will cool her system nnd reduce

With old rows little attention will bo
needed at farrowing time, though It
always pays to lie on hand to see that
everything Is going well. If the weath

warmed ns soon as hnrn. A good wny
to do this Is to hnve 11 basketful of
straw, with n Jug of hot water In
the middle. If the plgM are put mi the
straw nnd the basket covered with 11
suck they will soon lie wnriu. lively
and ready for their tlrst menl If the
sow Is in an Individual lniip, hanging
a lantern in the peak will help to keep
up the temperature. In extremely cold
weather pens Inside a large hog house
should be covered with hoards or blan
kets. The house should he provided
with n stove If many early pigs are
Do not mnke the mistake of feeding
the sow right away after farrowing.
For the first day or two she Is better
off without anything but water. At
tho end of this time u few dry outs
may be given. The feed should be in
creased gradually, using the same ra
tion ns was given before farrowing.
The npppnrance of the pigs will be the
best guide as to the feed that should
bo given the sow. If they begin to
scour give the sow u tablespoonful of
blood meal with her uext feed or half
a dozen eggs, if the pigs are consti
pated add 11 little ollmeal to the sow's
ration or give her. more sloppy food.
The pigs should be given considera
ble exercise or they are liable to get
too fat. get the thumps and die. There
should bo n place where they cau get
outdoors every pleasant day. Sun
shine is as essential to a little pig as
It is to u corn plant.
Feeding tho Pigs.
The cost of gains on pigs is SO per
cent lower while they nre nursing than
It is afterward. As soon as they are
well started they should be pushed as
rapidly as possible. The sow should
be given all the feed she can use.
Sloppy feed increases the milk flow
and should be given in liberal amounts.
The same may be said of sklmmllk.
The following rations will serve ns a
guide for feeding sows at this time:
Corn, one-sixth; sklmmllk. flve-slxths.
Corn, onp-thlrd; oats, one-third; mid
Corn, eight-ninths; tankage, one
Corn, flve-elghths; oats, one-quarter,
gluten feed, one-eighth.
It will not be long until the pigs are
able to cat a little for themselves.
They should be encouraged by giving
them feed in a pen by themselves,
where the older hogs cannot get to it.
In a few days the pigs will get to eat
ing regularly. For the first three
months It will pny to feed them three
times a day. A pig's stomach is small,
anil It cannot eat'enougti'ln the morn
ing to last until night.
Pasture nnd forage crops arc essen
tial for cheap and rapid gains In
young pigs. They are also much
healthier than when kept In a small
pen with no green feed. At the Wis
consin experiment station It wns found
that from 500 to 1.000 pounds of pork
could be produced from an ncre of
rape. Tests nt the Iowa experiment
station show that uearly 3K) pounds of
pork can be produced from an acre of
timothy. In both these experiments
grain wns fed in addition, but the
gains given nre those produced by the
green feed alone.
The best results are obtained when
grain Is fed on pnsture. The amount
to feed will depend largely upon tbp
relative prices of grnln and pork. A
light ration of grain produces cheaper
gains, as the pigs will cut more grass,
The gnlns produced In this way are
not so rapid as where more grain Is
fed. When grnln Is not too high and
pork a good price it pays to feed 11

rculv liberal ration of grain and get
i'u pigs on the market us souu ns pos
sible. Alfalfa or clover makes Ihe best
pnsture. Rape nnd peas are good for
temporary pastures. For a permanent
pasture blue grass nnd white clover
ure very good. A mixture of clover
and rape sown with oats In the spring
makes the best kind of fall pasture
when the other pastures are liable to
be scanty picking.
When com Is not worth over 30
cents a bushel the cheapest gains will
be made by feeding corn alone or In
connection with sklmmllk, provided
that plenty of green food Is given. As
the price of corn advances the use of
supplementary feeds high In protein
becomes more profitable. With corn at
50 cents n bushel the use of one part
of meat meal or tankage to nine parts
of corn will reduce the cost of gains
nearly a dollar a hundred pounds. The
difference Is even more marked when
eorn Is fed In a dry lot.
There Is .usually little to be gained
In grinding corn for hogs, but It will
be an advantage to shell It and soak It
from one feed to the next. Experl
ments show that this reduces the cost
of gains by about 8 per cent.
