COMPLETE SYSTEM OF
(Prop-trod by tho United Stntoa Depart
ment of AKrlenlturc.)
Tho familiar prnctlno of hogging off
crops has been developed by experts
In tho United States department of
ngriculturo Into a scientific system of
farm management which, It is said,
will minimize, in tlioso sections ami
those farms to which It Is ndnpted,
tho cost of harvest labor.
Reduced to its Rlmplost terms this
system, which Is described In full in
Farmers' Uulletln No. CI 4, "A Corn
Uelt System of Farming Which Save3
Harvest Labor by Hogging Down
Crops." consists of a four or live-year
rotation of corn, corn, rye and n mix
turo of clover und timothy ono or two
years. A farm manuged on this 'sys
tem should consist of four or llvo
fields of from 20 to 10 ncrea each,
nnd it Is dcslrnblo that all tho fields
should be of approximately tho same
size. Farms should be laid out in ac
cordance with the following plan:
1. Corn Klrst year to bo hoKRCit off.
2. Corn Second year to tiu cut nnd rye
3. Rye and Young Clover HogBod off
4. Clover and Timothy Hot; pastured
6. Timothy and Clover Kor hay or pas
ture. Above Is plan of a fnrm run on a flvo
In field No. 1 the first year corn is
grown nnd hogged off as soon as it is
ripe. This Is generally from Septem
ber 1 to September 10. When the corn
Is cultivated for the last time, it Is
usually desirable to sow soy beans or
Tape, in order that tho hogs may have
pasturago while gathering tho corn,
and also because such a crop supplies
valuable humus which can bo turned
back Into the soil. In tho following
spring this field Is prepared for second-year
corn and becomes field No. 2
in the Illustration.
Fold No. 2 1b, as wo havo seen, tie
. voted to second year corn, which Is
not hogged off but hnrvested by hnnd.
Here rye is sown in tho fall. Under
fovornblo conditions this can bo done
whllo tho corn is still standing, but If
necessary It is not too lato after tho
corn hns been cut nnd shocked. Hyo
mny ho sown much Inter than whent,
' and tills is ono of Its great advantages
I in n rotation Riich ns is now being de
scribed. Field No. 3 is devoted to ryo
throughout tho entire season. In tho
spring it is pastured by tho hogs as
long ns it is palatable, affording excel
lent pnsturage. especially for young
hogs nnd brood sows. When tho ryo
j becomes tough and tho hogs censo to
relish It, they should uo removed anu
not returned to tho field until two
TIME FOR SELLING PIG CROP
Much Depends Upon Price of Feeding
Materials and Development of
Bone, Muscle and Vigor.
Tho best tlmo to sell tho pigs de
pends upon tho price of feeding ma
terials that may bo utilized in growing
them nnd developing their bone, mus
clo and vigor, and preparing thorn for
tho fattening period. When wo havo
plenty of forage, skim milk and other
home-grown foods, wo often find it ad
vantageous to allow them a longer
period of growth than when wo feed
an exclusive grain diet. Market de
mands uro for a medium-sized hog,
with plenty of lean meat; strong, but
not too coarse bono; plenty of activity
and strength to stand up well during
Fall pigs, as a rulo, are less profit

would otherwise bo wasto feed in keep
ing them through tho winter. I'igs
that mako good gains during tho win

spring, und then fattened In tho fall,
often mako good gains during tho
longer periods, and cnBh In lino profits
in tho fall. On account of coming to
maturity at tho best time to breed for
spring litters, wo havo found fall far
rowed sows very desirable for breed
ing purposes. Tho second season gives
them the bono and musclo develop

Warm drinking water, light, warm
nnd dry quarters, succulent food with
frequent chnngo of breeding and diet,

entire crop and to grnzo upon the
young clover that has come up with
Floltl No. 4 Is devoted entirely to
hog pasture. When clover and tim
othy aro planted together, the hogs
graze principally on tho clover and
leavo most of tho timothy to bo cut
for hay. In tho live-year rotntlon, how
ever, field No, T Is depended upon to
furnish the principal supply of hay for
tho horses and cows. There should bo
bomo surplus nnd this, of courso, can
bo sold. Lato In tho fall the field Is
plowed for first year corn, and In tho
following spring it takes Its place in
tho rotation ns field No. 1.
Under such a system hogs furnish
tho principal lncomo. Thoy nro turned
in on tho ryo a early as posslblo In
tho spring nnd thoro thoy remnln ns
long as tho pasturo Is tender, al
though tho brood sows should be
taken to other inclosures as soon as
the spring pigs can be weaned, nnd
there bred for fall litters. Karly In
May when tho ryo probably ceases tc
afford good pasturo tho hogs are
turned into field No. 4, devoted tc
first-year clover and timothy. With
tho addition of a reasonably liberal
corn ration they feed on this until the
middle of July, or two weeks after tho
rye has ripened, when they are turned
back into the rye field and nllowed to
hog it nil down without other feed. Uy1
tho time tho rye Is harvested the corn
in field No. 1 is ready for the hogs.
If none of the stock is sold before, tho
hogs will gather all tho corn by No
vember 1. In this way with practical
ly no labor and very llttlo attention
tho entire herd is furnished with pas
turo and grain feed throughout tho
entire spring, summer nnd fall. In
addition, there is tho corn from field
No. 2, which is harvested and not
hogged down, nnd tho surplus hay
from fields No. 4 and 5.
Under this system, tho only tlmo
when outsldo labor Is ludlspcnsnblo is
during tho liny harvest. On a farm of
a hundred acres it is not probable thnt
this will nmount to moro than ten
days' hired labor, which is certainly
much less than Is required by tho sys
tems of farm management in moro
genernl use. As for tho cash Income,
it may bo said that roughly speaking
ryo ultimately brings tho snmo re
turns, whether It la hogged down or
cut nnd threshed nnd sold. In tile
lattor case, however, there Is nil the
cost of labor to bo considered, To
navo this, is tho main object of the
MIDDLINGS FOR YOUNG PIGS
If Rye Can Be Purchased for Less
Money Than Wheat It Will Be to
Advantage to Feed Them.
Chemical analyses indicate that
there is nearly 75 por cent moro fat
and slightly moro protein in wheat
middlings than In rye middlings, al
though feeding tests show that wheat
middlings aro but very little better
than ryo middlings. Feeding tests
have shown that pigs fed on ryo mid
dlings aro quite likely to go off feed,
which Is not so common an occur
rence with wheat middlings. With
prices tho same, wheat middlings
would bo tho better feed, but if ryo
middlings can bo purchased for some
what less than tho other, it will bo
to tho feeder's advantago to use them.

All this talk about tho exploitation
of labor by capital, class distinction,
living wage, high cost of living, and
so forth, doesn't hold tho slightest
interest for tho Canadian farmer.
Why? Ilccauso ho has proved that
you can't begin too poor to becomo
rich In Canada; thnt free homesteads
prccludo tho possibility of being
robbed of freedom and Independence;
that tho high cost of living can't hurt
tho man who grows most of his own
necessities; that his labor brings ro
