WEAN PIGS AT PROPER TIME
Much Depends Upon Their Thrift,
Season of Year, Accommodation
and Their Feed.
DY W. H. UNDERWOOD.
The age at which pigs can be
weaned is indefinite. The time de
pends largely upon their thrift, the
Beason of the year, the accommoda
tion and the feed one has for them. I
do not consider it advisable to wean
pigs before they are two months old, I
prefer more, to less age.
I generally wean my early pigs In
May, as I like to raise fall litters
from a portion of the sows. Sows
can ordinarily be bred within a week
after the pigs are taken away.
Sows that farrow in June will he
too late to breed for fall farrow. It
has been my custom to let these run
with the sows until they wean them
1 prefer to have iny sows with lit
ters in as small bunches as possible
prefer a house anil small yard with
plenty of grass for each sow. If they
are thus divided, and any of the pigs
get out of order, you at once know
what litter It Is, anil feed accordingly.
Watch the little pigs closely and
if they look thin and hungry see that
their mother is better fed and swilled.
As it Is next to impossible to raise
a litter of pigs without some of them
getting the scours at one time or
another, I will give my treatment for
this ailment, which has proven suc
cessful to me.
I watch them closely, and if any
of them are too loose at the next feed
ing I dissolve a teaspoonful of cop
peras, in a little warm water and feed
It to the sow in her swill. If the first
dose does not prove effective, I give
another the following day.
When the pigs get from two to four
weeks old I fence off a corner In the
nrd, where the i.*m cannot go, and
give the pigs all the shelled corn they
As soon as they are accustomed to
coming for the corn I begin by feeding
a little fresh milk diluted one-half
wit water. I begin with one cupful
and increase the amount as they learn
As the stomach of a little pig Is
as sensitive and delicate as that of a
child It Is very important that no milk
is left in the trough from the previ
ous feed as it tends to sour the trough
and the new milk.
After I have the pigs eating and
drinking, so they will come when
called and their stomach thoroughly
accustomed to the feed they are ready
Armed with alfalfa and corn, the
stockman can simply do anything.
A sheep must produce a variety of
products If it is to he most profitable.
The essential requisites for a work

In proportion to its size, the horse

Grubb flies worry the sheep in hot
weather. Provide a dark, cool shed
or let them run in thick underbrush.
It weakens the horses to keep them

hot nights Turn them out.
Every effort should be made to have
the stock enter the winter In good
flesh and heart.
It does not pay to give water in
dirty vessels to any farm animal.
Hogs are no exception.
Pasture is the cheapest pork pro
ducer and the longer the season of
pasturage may be provided, the better.
A poor appetite in any farm animal
is greatly against its doing its best,
no matter where it is working.
Hog pasture is getting dry and
short? Cut a little green corn and
toss it over, stalks nd all, to the
hogs. It will help them out wonder

CRATE TO FATTEN POULTRY
Some Farmers Follow That Method
for Quick Profits—Some Ex

by some for quick profit. Tty keeping
the chickens in confinement they do
not form sinew and muscle ns they
do when allowed to run at large
Some coops are divided Into partitions
or stalls, each of which will hold two
or three young chicks or one full
grown fowl. They should be fed three
times a day all they will out In 15
or 20 minutes. Here arc some formu
las for fattening poultry In crates:
Equal parts of bran, corn meal and
oat meal or rolled breakfast oats,
mixed with skimmed milk, fed three
times a day.
Buckwheat flour, pulverized oats
and comment. In equal parts, mixed
Equal parts barley meal and oat
meal and half n part of corn meal,
mixed with buttermilk or skimmed
A favorite French combination is
two parts barley meal, one part corn
meal and one part buckwheat Hour.
A little salt and coarse sand should
be added to their food. Three weeks
is the length of time to continue the
feeding. Chickens do not seem able
to stand the confinement for a greater
length of time. During the last week
of tlie fattening process five per
cent, of cotton seed meal and a little
tallow may lie added to any of the
A fattening crate is usually made
0 feet (! inches long, IS to 20 inches
high and 10 Inches wide, it is di
vided into three compartments, each
holding four to five birds, according
to the size of the chickens. It is
made of slats, except the ends and
partitions between the compartments,
which are of solid wood. The slats
on the top, bottom and back run
lengthwise of the coop, while those
on the front run up and down. They
are usually 1 % Inches wide and %

two Inches apart to allow the chick
etis to put ttieir Heads through for
feeding. The slats nil the bottom are
placed about % of uu Inch apart so
as to permit the droppings to pass
through to the ground. Care should
be taken not to have the first bottom
slat at the back tit closely against the
back. An opening at this point pre
vents the droppings collecting and de
composing. The slats on the top and
back are usually 2 inches apart. There
is a small V shaped trough arranged
In front of the coop for feeding nnd
watering the chickens. The trough
Is 2 to U Indies deep and ts generally
made of :’.,-lneh lumber.
Very fair coops are made from old
packing lioxes, b\ taking off the front
and bottom and substituting slats in
their places, as shown in the Illus

the building and keep the birds ns
quiet as possible.
Don’t gorge them one day nnd starve
them the next.
Don’t fall to divide the buttermilk
between biddy and the pigs. She rel
ishes It us much as they.
Remember the lien when laying
needs about twice as much food as
she would when not laying.

to sit, shut them up In a coop where
they ran only roost on an elevated ob

Chicks cannot grow and keep
healthy unless they take proper ex

Greens belong naturally in the
chicken feed list. In the wild state
fowls live on vegetable matter, wild
seeds and inserts. In captivity ttiey
require the same tilings.
