THE FEEDING OF PIGS. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 27 March 1914
THE FEEDING OF PIGS. Tho opinion seems to b*v genora. amongst a certain class of pig-keepers, says a writer in "Farmer and Stock breeder," that vegetable food which contains so largo a proportion of water -roots, for instance, contain about 1) per cent, of watur-cannot bo beneficial . l'or pigs, whereas exactly tlio opposite ia the fact, as proved by experiments carried on, ono must confess main! ' id other countries, have dourly prove that pig fed on nine-tenths meal and cue-tenth vegetable matter actually linvo mudo a greater ineroaso than pigs fed solely on meal. TJioro is thus a considerable saving- in the cost of food. It should be added that there exists nmo'.ig certain baoon curers in Ireland a fear that the giving of vegetable matter or roots to pigs during the fattening period, injures tlio quality of the pork and results in soft bacon. Tt is quite possible that the result may bo as stated, but it may also be duo, not to the unsuitability of the other Un-tl fed nt tho same ...
