Corn aad Hogs,
From carefully conducted experi
ments by different persons, it has been
ascertained that one bushel of corn
will make a little moro than ten pounds
of pork, gross. Taking the result as a
basis, the following deductions a.-
made, which all our farmers would do
well to lay by for a convenient refer
When corn slls at 12J cents per
bushel, pork costs 1 v cents par pound.
When corn costs 17 cents per bushel,
pork costs 2 cents per pound.
When corn costs 25 cints per bushel,
pork costs 3 cents ier pound.
When corn costs S3 ceais per bushel,
pork costs 4 cents per pound.
Whdn corn costs CO cents par bush
el, pork costs 5 cents per pound.
The following statement shows what
the farmer realizes on his corn when,'
sold on the terms of pork.
When pork fells at 3 cents per pound,
it brings 25 cents per bashsl in corn.
When po k sells ar 4 cents per pound
it brings 32 cents per b shel in corn.
