Tried Sows Found Most Profitable as Breeders [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Weekly Review — 2 October 1929
Tried Sows Found Most Profitable as Breeders Old sows may be more profitable than gilts for next spring s crop of pigs , says E . F . Ferrin of the animal husbandry department at University Farm . The spring pigs grown this year have had . very , scanty grain allowances , consequently most of the gilts are small and undersized , he ? says . These gilts are more miniature and undeveloped than . during ordinary seasons . The litters from gilts such as these are apt to be disappointing next spring . JOn some farms there are thin sows still in the prime of breeding efficiency that have not yet been fattened for market because of the scarcity of grain during the summer . These sows will yield a good profit if bred to farrow . next spring , providing they take the place of the undersized gilts . The sows can be bred to farrow earlier than the gilts and . . accordingly late farrowing of next . year s , crop can be avoided . - - : ¦•¦¦ , • A yearling or two-year-old sow will farrow and rais...

FALL PIGS EXACT BEST MANAGEMENT Q UITE STOCKS Should Run on Forage After Weaning to Get Start . Fall pigs should be given a chance to run on forage crops for a time after weaning , says . the animal husbandry department of the Ohio State university . This practice will give them a better start for the long winter mouths . Fall pigs demand the best of attention to feeding and handling if they are to be profitable to the grower .

Corn probably Is the best feed from the point of energy value , but must be balanced with higU protein foods . Skim milk and buttermilk , both of them high in protein and mineral matter , are good to balance grains . Two and one-half to three pounds of milk should be fed with one pound of corn for 50-pound pigs . As . the animals grow the proportion of milk may be decreased . Tankage , fi...
Frequent Attention Is Needed by Self-Feeder [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Weekly Review — 2 October 1929
Frequent Attention Is Needed by Self-Feeder One advantage of the self-feeder is that it will probably save some labor , but the amount of labor saved depends somewhat on the size and type of the feeder . A small feeder requires frequent fllling , and practically all feeders require considerable attention to see that the feed is feeding down properly . Frequent attention should be given to see that feed is not being nosed out and wasted and that , if the feeds are in separate compartments , the hogs are not eating too much of the protein feeds and not enough of the others , or vice versa .
