That is the Hog I am Going to Raise From Now On . Culleoka , Tenn , The Berkshire World , Springfield , 111 . Gentlemen : —The present outlook for the Berkshire hog in my communtiy is better than ever before . 1 have had a number of good farmers to come and look at my Berkshires . Some would buy and others would say That is the hog that I am going to raise from this on . I received an order over the telephone this morning from a Mr . S . A . Appelby of Lewisburg , Tenn ., my own county , one of the oldest and best breeders of Jersey cattle in our county . He was over about ten days ago and looked at my hogs . I priced him a Lee s Artful Belle 80 th boar pig , the last I have of that litter , for $ 350 . 00 . That makes five pigs sold from that litter , February 18 , 1909 farrow , and they have all been bought by my neighbors except one sent to the South Carolina Experiment Station .

"It Looks Pretty Good Over Here in Ohio . " [Newspaper Article] — Berkshire World and Cornbelt Stockman — 1 January 1910
It Looks Pretty Good Over Here in Ohio . Wapakoneta , Ohio . Editors Berkshire World : The future Berkshire outlook did you say ? Well boys it looks pretty good over here in Ohio . We ve been asleep to a great many good things over here , and when you fellows get us properly aroused , you ve started something here in the way of Berkshire swine . Why ,, this year we started at least half a hundred new men who will breed them for market , then we sent out a lot of high class stuff to breeders . Men are looking for quality these days , quality—quality with breeding quality , with size ; it s an age when quality is the slogan . Today the question is , who is the best doctor , the best lawyer , which is the best hotel , the best store , the best automobile ; men are looking for the best , the quality , and right here is why the Berkshire is moving so rapidly to the front . Men are tired of the just as good kind . Show me a Berkshire man and Ill show you a man that is winning persona ! fa...
Who ' s Who In Berkshires [Newspaper Article] — Berkshire World and Cornbelt Stockman — 1 January 1910
Who s Who In Berkshires From a Peddlers Wagon to the Pinnacle of Fame . One day forty odd years ago a farmer said to his son , Andy , you ve got to get out and hike for yourself . Beginning with a job with a wholesale notion house in Rockford , 111 . at . $ 25 per month and continuing peddling goods with a horse and wagon down in Egypt , Andy stayed for four years with the same firm enjoying an increase of salary each year . He then was employed by a St . Louis firm and after five years in the service , purchased an excellent team and wagon and toured that southern country his own boss . The longing for the farm and for the hogs was strong within him , however , and in 1875 Mr . Lovejoy bought from M . F . Dunlap of Jacksonville , 111 ., a pair of pigs for which he paid the ridiculously exorbitant price of $ 100 . The following year he bought the home farm—now Riverside —from his father . When the young man returned home with his pigs his father asked if he were crazy to pay such a ...
Only Regret is He Cannot Supply the Demand . [Newspaper Article] — Berkshire World and Cornbelt Stockman — 1 January 1910
Only Regret is He Cannot Supply the Demand . Obion , Tenn . The Berkshire World , Springfield , 111 . We consider the future outlook for Berkshires indeed flattering . The present demand was never better and ha * been extra good throughout this year . Taking this into consideration , and also that money is plentiful in most sections , we cannot see anything to prevent the demand continuing to prevent the demand continuing good . While there are many good breeds of hogs , it is very evident to me that the people at large are each year becoming more impressed with the superiority of the Berkshire hog . And as this sentiment is bound to grow as time moves on we are sure the demand for the Berkshire , best of all breeds , will continue to grow as they prove their superiority whenever an opportunity is offered . Our only regret is that we will not be able to supply the demand that we are confident the near future will bring forth , for with the present demands our supply will soon be exh...

"I Can't Raise Them Fast Enough . " [Newspaper Article] — Berkshire World and Cornbelt Stockman — 1 January 1910
I Cant Raise Them Fast Enough . Shreveport , La ., Dec . 18 , 1909 . The Berkshire World , ¦ Springfield , 111 . Gentlemen : —The number of inquiries coming to me beginning with I saw your ad in The Berkshire World , makes me believe it must be a good paper to- reach people who want Berkshires , and on that account you can at least count on me for a regular advertiser . My hogs seem to be doing their best , but even at that the old sows cant quite raise enough pigs to fill mail orders , especially those calling for bred gilts . For this reason I was forced to buy some gilts , and have just gotten them home . They arrived safely from Mr . G . Murrel Middleton of Shelbyville , Ky ., and are all that I . could have hoped for . Havent gotten their papers yet , but any hog of their conformation could not but have a correct sire and dam . I shall breed these gilts to Son of Masterpiece , by old Masterpiece and out of Lee s Artful Belle 101 st and offer them for $ 50 . 00 each , and theyll...
Berkshires Profitable in Ken tucky . [Newspaper Article] — Berkshire World and Cornbelt Stockman — 1 January 1910
Berkshires Profitable in Ken tucky . Shelbyville , Ky ., Dec . 18 , 1909 . Editor Berkshire World , Springfield , 111 . Dear Sir : —The fact that Berkshires are , have been and always will be at the top with the farmer , breeder and packer is well establised . That the trade survives through panics and low market prices is encouraging to all of us who have chosen this great breed to promote its interests and to improve its excellence . When we have a crop of pigs ready for market all that is necessary to sell them is to make mention that we have them for sale through some leading Stock paper and we are flooded with orders as a result . To our Kentucky Breeders Berkshires have been very profitable indeed . Our public and private sales have been very successful so we have reason for our faith in the Berkshire as the leading breed of the future . We have further proof of this in that our customers have been pleased which satisfaction is our advertisement . Canewood herd suffered loss i...
Judging the Future by the Past . [Newspaper Article] — Berkshire World and Cornbelt Stockman — 1 January 1910
Judging the Future by the Past . Harvel , 111 . The Berkshire World , Springfield , 111 . Gentlemen : —We have only one sure guide for the future and that is to judge by the past . Reviewing briefly the herd of Berkshires my father produced as early as 1872 from a large Berkshire boar that developed into a 700 lb . hog ; I see and remember that herd as the beginning of Berkshires in our neighborhood . In 1875 I bought my first sow and six pigs . They were said to be pure bred Berkshires and I paid $ 20 . 00 for the bunch . These I kept and bred from them quite a herd but none were registered . In 1880 my brother bought a Berkshire boar somewhere in Northern Illinois . He developed into a very fine and massive hog and left lasting impressions in our herds and also in the neighbors herds but not until 1907 did I commence to breed registered Berkshires . Knowing the past records as I do , like a story book that unfolds its pages of new and fresh things that the mind enjoys and wants to...
The Last Great Corn Country . [Newspaper Article] — Berkshire World and Cornbelt Stockman — 1 January 1910
The Last Great Corn Country . In another place in this issue Mr . L . J . Campbell , with offices in the State National Bank Bldg ., Springfield , 111 ., is advertising some cheap rand in the last great corn country . We do not hestitate to say that no one can go wrong in taking up with the proposition he is offering . Dozens of business , professional men and farmers from and around Springfield , and the southern part of the state , that we personally know about have thoroughly investigated this proposition and placed their money in it . One of the strongest recommendations that we know is that not one of all who have seen the land has anything but the best to say of it and practically all have invested . The soil is a rich alluvium made by successive overflows but the entire country is now protected by levees and the overflow is a thing of the past . The whole country is thoroughly drained and brought under cultivation The land can be cleared at an expense of $ G to $ 10 per acre ...

Hog Notes—By a Practical Hog Man [Newspaper Article] — Berkshire World and Cornbelt Stockman — 1 January 1910
Hog Notes—By a Practical Hog Man A . J . Lovejoy , Roscoe , 111 With 12 to 18 inches of snow , and the thermometer around zero and lower , Wyman thinks the feeding of a large herd of Berkshires is a question of physical ability . He is doing this . He thinks a warm hog house with whole herd under one cover , trolly track , etc ., would look good these days . A little later he will think the individual houses are better as he always has . It is time like December that tries a man s nerve . If he can cook the feed for 150 hogs and pigs , feed them twice a day , bed them fresh twice each week , attend to the breeding , etc ., he will not have the necessity of waiting for his mouth to water before attempting to eat , for he will 1 be ready to do justice to three meals a day at least , and need have no fear of indigestion . Give the pigs warm feed and warm , dry beds these days ,, and at night you can listen to the howling snow storms and not worry . Could you sleep well if the sow and h...

Helmuth Buys One-Half Interest [Newspaper Article] — Berkshire World and Cornbelt Stockman — 1 January 1910
Helmuth Buys One-Half Interest Our readers will remember that we reported the August sale of Schlabach &amp; Helmuth , Millersburg , Ohio , and in that sale the great boar Longfellow Premier C . was purchased by Mr . A . E . Fisher , Orient , for $ 2700 . Mr . G . B . Helmuth , owned at the time of the sale a half interest in Longfellow Premier C , and had no desire to dispose of the boar but it was thought best by both . Messrs . Helmuth and Schlabach to offer the boar at public sale so as to allow these gentlemen to settl e all of their partnership affairs . After the sale to Mr . Fisher , Mr . Helmuth was fortunate in having a number of sows to farrow fall litters that were sired by Longfellow Premier C , and the pigs were so uniformly good that he was constrained to open negotiations with Mr . Fisher for a half interest . Mr . Fisher had the boar in his possession and had no desire to part with him but was prevailed upon to sell a half interest to Mr . Helmuth . The boar...
Mr . Pickens Gets Missouri ' s Best . [Newspaper Article] — Berkshire World and Cornbelt Stockman — 1 January 1910
Mr . Pickens Gets Missouri s Best . The Berkshire World , Springfield , 111 . Gentlemen : —I have just shipped Lady Premier C . 4 th 88269 to Mr . W . K . Pickens , Livingston , Ala . I have owned many good Berkshires but never a better one than this splendid daughter of Lord Premier . She has size with extreme quality , an ideal head and a ham that would delight any breeder . Perhaps no better sow ever left Missouri , and when Mr . Pickens mates this magnificent animal with his great son of Masterpiece , Livingston Masterpiece , he certainly will raise one of the greatest litters ever heard of . Lady Premier C . 4 th was purchased for me by your Mr . L . E . Frost when about a year old at one of Mr . G . G . Councils public sales . Since then , she has developed into the magnificent animal that I have tried to describe above , and as a brood sow there are few her equal , and certainly none her superior . I am glad that this sow goes into such good hands , as I have been told that M...
