WEANING PIGS. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 25 November 1914

} WEANING PIGS. • Almost every breeder or pork pro) dueerhos his own special method on weaning pigs. The most important coi/ sidcration in ail methods is to see than the pigs arc so weaned that they do_not{ cease growing or lose during this critic* al period. Sotuo pigmen prefer to allow tho pigs to run with the sows until they wean themselves; others practice forced weaning at three or four months of age. A method very commonly advised is to wean tho pigs a few at a time, taking out the largest, strongest ones at first and leaving the smallest and runtiest pigs until the last. Whero this method can be conveniently carried out it is undoubtedly a good one, but as a rule circumstances on the average farm are /* such *hat it is not practical to wean tho pigs iu this manner. Pigs should always be eueouraged to "begin eating additional feed as early ; as possible. Wherever swim-milk is ' available this uiiiy be giveu in a pen into which tho pigs only can go.

100 WELL KNOWN TO NEED AN "AD." i This idea that you have lived so Ions in town that everybody knows you and you don't need 'o advertise is a mistake. This very indifference to advertising, indifference to doing business as It is done in this day and age, is what .has enabled the catalogue or mail ordei houses to grow from mere nothing to great concerns. The merchant who can convince the people of his section, and keep them convinced that his store ic, the best place to buy this and that arti cle, will not lose trade to the mail ordei house. Of course he cannot afford to get out a catalogue as thick as a Bible but he can keep an advertisement in his local paper, and see that it is changed, thus keeping new bargains continually befor the public. He should also have a mailing list, and send out a circular letter at least once a month. Don'l look upon your country newspaper as an object of charity.

The numerous inhabitants of the Waitchie South district are at last to have a regular postal ser vice. Arrangements of a very satisfactory nature have been completed, and a bi-weekly mail service will leave the Ultima post office in charge of Mr T. Hamil ton, at whose place on the main road at Waitchie South a receiv ing office has been installed. There is no doubt that the Mallee farmers are gradually receiving the earnest consideration of the Postal department.
