Her popularity as a profitable producer , of cheese has made her a leading favorite wherever tested under favorable conditions . .

Any weakness in the legs Is objectionable in a breeding pig . It is not good economy to feed growing pigs exclusively on corn . It Is possible to regulate the quality of meat to a great extent by the kind of feed . In nearly all cases a mixed ration will make cheaper food than corn alone . It is a good plan to know that every hog comes to his food at every feeding . It is conducive to health to feed the hogs when they have the range of the pasture fields . There is no profit in keeping the pig or any other animal when there is no gains . The pig will give a larger return for food consumed than any other animal . The colder the days grow the more care is required to make a pound of pork . In nearly all cases for early pigs it is much safer to breed the aged sows of the herd . An abundance...
