Growing and Fattening of Hogs During Summer [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Weekly Review — 11 September 1929
Growing and Fattening of Hogs During Summer The growing and fattening of hogs in the summer time without the use-of some good pasture crop is usually an uneconomical practice . A saving of from 15 to 25 per cent of the total amount of grain and supplements may be expected through the use of forage . It may even be possible in some cases with an abundance of legume forage to obtain fairly satisfactory gains for a time on forage alone , but the greatest returns will be obtained when grain is fed in addition to the . forage at the rate of three or four pounds per day for each 100 pounds live weight . When the grain feed is very much limited on pasture , naturally less grain will be used in making the early gains , but as in the experiment cited above , eventually a total of more grain may be required to finish the hogs and the time required will be longer .
