CARE OF COWS AND PIGS [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 August 1899
CARE OF COWS AND PIGS My method of handling brood sows ls as follows : In the first place I select sows from good stock and never breed them before they are a year old . Never part with a good brood sow no matter how old she Is , so long as she does well , as one will generally have better BUCPess with her than with young sows , writes Thos . Van Nice , in the Prairie Farmer . If it is possible breed to a matured hog , as the pigs will be stronger and seem to do better . A brood sow should never be penned up until about a week before farrowing time , then she should be put in a dry pen by herself . She should not be kept too fat , but a week or ten days before farrowing her feed should be increased , as I think a little fat put at this time is a benefit ; making her stronger and also her offspring . Care should be taken in making her bed pre paratory to farrowing to see that the ground is level and not much bedding should be used , as she is more apt to He on her pigs if too much be...

The earlier sheep raising in the states of Tennessee , Louisiana , Mississippi , Georgia , Florida and the two Oarolinas was for wool alone , and this principally for home consumption . The most of the original stock introduced into the territory now included in these states was perhaps of Spanish blood , but from whatever source It came , the sheep had little attention and soon became known as natives or scrubs . Permitted to roam at will and receiving no care except it be an occasional salting , they became a hardy sheep , without much wool , yet sufficiency to make them worthy of collection at annual shearing time for getting this product , after which they were again turned out for another year .
