LARD IS WORTH
MORE THAN. LUMBER
It takes more than his bristles to keep a hog warm.
Jf he is not otherwise protected, he will have to absorb
his own fat.
It is cheaper, to use cheap lumber than valuable lard to
keep your hogs comfortable.
Also even a hog responds to the right kind of shelter
. . All of which means
it is PATRIOTIC to raise hogs to supply the much
It is WISE to give hogs the proper shelter and care to
produce the maximum of fat from the minimum of feed.
It is ECONOMICAL to build the RIGHT KIND ot
shelter at first instead of later. ?
' It is PLAIN GOOD BUSINESS to secure designs drawn
by agricultural experts who know and materials from men
who have the right kind at the right price.
Our claims to have both the DESIGNS and the MA
TERIAL best suited for this work can easily be proven by
by your personal investigation.
