The Permanent Hog
J No Other Building on the Farm
OOUSe Pays For Itself So Quickly
A Government expert says that "Good hog men
average about seven pigs raised to the litter. Many
do better. But the general average raised on the farm
does not exceed four pigs to the litter."
This big difference is largely in the housing. The
question is not so much a matter of cost as the proper
design of a hog house. Many hog houses cost enough
to be good, but are entirely unfit because the sun
cannot shine into the pens. Sunshine and ventila
tion arc absolutely necessary.
On the other hand, inexpensive houses olten
