MASTERPIECE STANDARD 128943 IgAND ^ - I LONGFELLOW PERMIER C , 2 d 138000 Divide Honors Equally Masterpiece Standard is the most intensely bred Black Robinhood boar living and in my opinion is as good a boar as I have ever owned . Longfellow Premier C 2 d is a son of the $ 2700 Lungfellow Premier C out of a daughter of Masterpiece , and has been selected to take the place of Longfellow Premier C . He is an extremely uniform breeder and with these two grand boars to mate with the magnificent sows that are now in my herd , a large number of them being . daughters of Longfellow Premier C and other daughters of Masterpiece , Baron Duke 50 th , Invincible Masterpiece , Rival s Last , etc ., I believe I will produce better Berkshires than I ever have done in the past . Only the very best sent out on mail orders . About 50 extremely choice sows will be bred to Masterpiece Standard and Longfellow Premier C 2 d for my February 9 th , 1911 , public sale . Before catalogue is issued , I will b...
Mississippi State Fair and Swine Exhibit . [Newspaper Article] — Berkshire World and Cornbelt Stockman — 1 December 1910
Mississippi State Fair and Swine Exhibit . In n 06 I attended the Mississippi State Fair purposely to see the Swine exhibit . After a fruitless search for Swine sheds , I began to make enquiries , and after at least one-half hour s work , I succeeded in getting directions , and , on diligent search , I succeeded in finding three pens ( if I remember correctly . ) There was not a person in sight . The pens were in the most secluded part of the grounds under the friendly shelter of some willow trees . These pens contained a few inferior , apparently grade , Poland China hogs . The owner was evidently ashamed of them for there was no sign to indicate who he was . I was so thoroughly disgusted that I left the grounds at once and took no more interest in this Fair until the American Berkshire Association sent out their cup offer in 1909 . I then enrolled my name as a member of the Mississippi Berkshire Association , bought stamps with the enrollment fee and began writing Berkshire Breede...
Premier C ' s Lad . [Newspaper Article] — Berkshire World and Cornbelt Stockman — 1 December 1910
Premier C s Lad . To The Berkshire World : — Premier C s Lad 128000 , the subject of the above sketch , like his sire Longfellow Premier C . 98700 , is proving himself a great sire . His pigs are very typey , with good heads , good bodies , good bone and plenty of size . Have had this boar at the head of our herd until recently when we sold him to Mr . A . E . Fisher , Orient , Ohio to take the place of Longfellow Premier C , formerly at the head of his herd . While Mr . Fisher paid a good , price for him if he lives he will prove a great investment . Have purchased another son of Longfellow Premier C . 9 S 700 , a hog bred by us but sold when a pig to Mr . C . P . Dickerman of Mallet Creek , Ohio . We are confident that Pine Knoll Longfellow , mated with the good sows in our herd , will produce some splendid specimens of Berkshires . Very truly , John F . Myers , Mlllersburg , Ohio .
The Dietrich System [Newspaper Article] — Berkshire World and Cornbelt Stockman — 1 December 1910
The Dietrich System Regarding the Dietrich System of swine feeding , will say that I think it the coming system of hog feeding . While we have fed but five head of hogs by this system and these not to the letter , as we were not equipped to weigh them each week , yet never had hogs do better nor lock healthier . The five were Fall gilts—three being farrowed September 16 , 1909 and two September 29 , 1909 . They were fed from weaning time up until April 1 st as has been our custom heretofore , feeding a rather heavy middling slop with a small amount of oil meal or tankage added and some ear corn . Having access to fresh water and given a warm place to sleep . April 1 st , not having scales to weigh them , we estimated their weight to be not more than 130 pounds each ; turned them into an acre clover patch ; gave them an A shaped house for shelter and began feeding by the Dietrich System . The ration given was composed of corn meal , middlings , tankage , clover pasture and water . Th...

UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Berkshire World and Cornbelt Stockman — 1 December 1910
Mind vs . Muscle . Rev . W . N . Tobie . Mind is always superior to muscle . A fairy once came to three boys and offered to fulfil any three wishes each might make . One wished for health , wealth and many friends ; another for health , fame and a beautiful wife . The third wished for health , friends and three more wishes . This boy got more than the others , because he used his brains . He used his mind to multiply his life . Look about you : are men of brains or men of brawn at the top ? I know a boy likes to feel his muscle ; but tell me—what kind of people are at the head of things—men of mind or men of muscle ? Who are the presidents of the railroads ? Men of mind . Who work with pick and shovel on the tracks ? Men of muscle . Who commands the navy ? A man of mind . Who stokes at the furnaces ? A man of muscle . Who designed the finest building in your town ? A man of mind . Who hauled the stone ? A man of muscle . Who draws the big salary and the fat fee ? Who holds the highe...

Think This Over [Newspaper Article] — Berkshire World and Cornbelt Stockman — 1 December 1910
Think This Over Madison , S . D . The Berkshire World , Springfield , 111 . Gentlemen : —In answering your favors will say that our herd was not fitted a day before we showed at our State Fair , 1910 . We won two firsts , nine seconds , six thirds and two fourths premiums . Our herd boar was the oldest animal we showed , being a Senior Yearling . Two of the sows shown were mothers of eight of the pigs shown . We find it helps sales and it is not beneficial to fit breeding stock as the modern show ring requires . We do not wish to discredit the finished product showing but when a herd is shown it should mean animals in breeding condition and their offspring before the judge . Our Fairs are supposed to be an educational affair . When a man buys a winner , takes him home and handles him as the average man does , it puts a different light on our Fairs . What benefit is blackening ? Farther , how many Berkshire sows , with their wonderful nursing trait , can raise a litter of six pigs fa...
What He Did in 1910 [Newspaper Article] — Berkshire World and Cornbelt Stockman — 1 December 1910
What He Did in 1910 Editor Berkshire World : — With this issue ( December ) we close the year of 1910 , and as I look back over the year I cant help but say it has been a good one . Good in more ways than one . First of all , it was good to raise Berkshires and then it was good to sell them . During the year we have raised and sold over one hundred head leaving us with about one hundred head for our 1911 campaign . The year was extraordinarily good in that we had no disease of any kind in our herd and lost only one sow , Charmers Violet 21 st 114742 , with heat ; and some pigs at farrowing time . While we have sold our stuff cheap , considering quality and breeding , during the past year , as we look back we congratulate ourselves and thank you , ( The Berkshire World ) who hunted up our trade and rounded up our cus tomers and sent them here to buy our stock . We also want to thank you , our customers , who are scattered all the way from New Hampshire to Oregon and from Michigan to ...

These sows are all bred now , and I am expecting the best lot ¦ of Spring pigs I have ever raised . These are a good lot of sows , and have been raising some good ones by Berry s Choice .
