SAVE THE SWINE
With Nebraska hogmen “on the
spot” due to drouth conditions and
facing liquidations of breeding
stock, the Nebraska Livestock
Breeders and Feeders association
and authorities at the University
of Nebraska college of agriculture
this week advocated a 7-point pro
gram for the benefit of the swine
Dan M. Hildebrand, of Seward,
president of the livestock associ
ation, and Prof. Wm. J. Loeffel
of the Nebraska college of agricul
ture joined together in putting
forth the program. Both are con
cerned whether sufficient breeding
stock will be retained by Nebras
ka farmers to re-establish their
herds next year.
The 7-point program includes:
1. Planting rye for pasture as
soon as moisture conditions im
prove. It will make fall and win
ter feed and reduce grain require
ments in maintaining breeding
stock. 2. Replace old sows with
gilts. 3. Keep a few of the best
gilts as well as pigs, one or two.
| for home meat supply. 4. Mar
ket pigs at lighter weights. Well
finished light-weighty pigs are sell
ing at very good prices now. 6.
Use protein supplements liberal'y.
6. Farrow 1937 spring pigs as
late as possible. 7. Small grains
