BIDDY THE HEN. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 6 June 1914
BIDDY THE HEN. The lost egg-more plainly., tlio bad egg-costs tlio family circle of the United Slates over £13,^00,(XX) an nually . This . loss is by no means the fault of Biddy, tlis lieu, wlio does her thrifty, part to solve the "high, cost of living," laying yearly over £80,01)0,000 worth of eggs. Not a bad ono does she lay. How then, do we, her btn-iieiaries, manage to despoil ourselves of two in every twelve of iier gifts?

THE MANAGEMENT OF YOUNG PIGS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 6 June 1914
THE MANAGEMENT OF YOUNG PIGS. Our views as to what weight a pig should reach vary enormously. A frienu of my own, once a well-known .Berk shire breeder, made his pigs into ba coners in about thirty weeks or into porkers in, sixteen weeks, but I do not think that in these later days lie would be satisfied with the results, for 7J, | months is a long period to feed a youngster for prime meat, whereas if the meat were too heavy the reduced I price would remove ail the incentive. A porker pig should pay very well in sixteen weeks and not be too fat, as just as in tho case of tho baeoner tins lets down the price. Another once famous breeder friend fed his pigs until l.is lianis scaled 120ib each, but these wi-i'o only seven months old, yet they all'ord an excellent idea as to tho gross weight of tho carea.se. Tiio curer of bacon requires not only lean meat, but small meat, henco tho weight of a bacon pig should not ex ceed 1-10 to l(iO lb., and it is precisely such meat' which obtains tl...
