The Hog Situation
Nebraska has been for many yeais
one of the great hog producing states,
being surpassod only by Iown, Illinois
and Missouri. There were more hogs
on Nebraska farms January 1, 1012
than on all of the farms in the thirteen
states east of Ohio and north of the
Cnroliuas. Perhaps In no other pari
of the United .States can hogs bo pro
duced more advantageously than h re.
as they furnish an economic wny of
marketing corn and iilfalfa.
At the piesont time in homo of the
localities of the State wheiu corn hits
been injuiod by the drouth there is a
tendency to market the hogs as soon
as posiiblo. Piofossor Bliss of the
Unlveislty of Nebraska does not be
lieve for n man to sacrifice his blood
ing stock because of the short corn
crop. While there may not bo much
profit iu feeding hogs at the present
price of corn, It must bo remembered
that this high price corn will discour
age hog raisin? so that wo may expect
a short pig crop next year, and conse
quently a high price.
We have been raising fewer hogs iu
recent years despite our increasing
population. In lltll there wore nearly
(i.,00O.W) hogs in the-United States
and at tho present timujho estimated
number is a little over 01,000,000. In
Nebraska wo had l,207,0o0 in 1012 and
at tho corresponding time thjs yenr we
had .'1,709,000. According to tho report
of the county assessors more than 11 1,
GOo hogs died of disoase Iu this State
dining the year preceding the first of
April 1012. Cholera is raging now iu
mauy localities and the serum plant at
the University is having troublo to" (111
Its orders. Our exports of cured poik
havo decreased until they were less
than 100,000,000 pounds In 1012, a little
more than half what we exported In
With the present teudoucy to save
corn by marketing hogs, before they
are fed out, ami the decrease in pro
duction, what do you think are the
prospects of cheap pork next year?
Save your breedlug stock.

Many farmers tiro wondering where
they aro to get ne.t year's seed corn.
Many can find it on their own laud, or
can got it of their neighbors, and get
higher yielding corn than by sending
away. Professor T. A. Klessclbach of
tho University of Nebraska bus the
following to say of the present situat
ion: "The Government Crop Boport has
estimated the probable yield of corn
in Nebraska at less than .15 percent of
a normal crop." Tho crop is restricted
more or less to certuin areas, while
large portions of the State will have
almost a total failure. This condition
calls attention to the matter of toed
coin for next spring's planting. Tho
seed corn situation, however, need uot
be so serious as it appears at first
thought. In fact such years as this
may be beneficial by way of eliminat
ing all but the moio haidy strains ot
coin within any ordinary variety. If
only scatteiiug plants produce ears
under tho prevailing hardships, it is
quite leasonable to believe that thc-so
plants aro especially resistant and
should provide the best kind of seed
corn, lOven though tho cars bo small,
it Is to bo lecommemled wherever
possible, that a farmer select seed from
his own or neighbor's Held, Tlio small
size will bo duo to adverse growing
conditions and will uot be transmit
ted to the following crop. At any ruto
au abundance- of seed will bo available
In Nebraska for our own planting and
there will be no need of importing
less adapted seed from other states."
