Worm Causes Heavier
Losses Than Cholera
The Boardman Mirror
Biggest Pail of the Damage
Comes From Wasted Feed.
MARK A. CLEVELAND, Publisher
PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY
?2.00 PER YEAR IN ADVANCE-
Swine ralsrs suffer greater loss
from round worms than from hog
cholera, according to the department
of animal husbandry of the New Jer
sey agricultural experiment station,
but they do not attract so much atten
tion because few hogs acti !ly die
from worms. The damage cm uea from
the amount of feed wasted in feeding
the worms and the loss of vitality of
the animals. Many lung diseases, es
pecially pneumonia, occur as the di
rect result of worms.
To combat the round worm success
fully Its life cycle should be thor
oughly understood, six to eight mil
inn eggs a year are laid by the fe
male worm in the bog's Intestines.
The eggs come out with the manure,
Infecting every particle of food on
the surface of the hog lot. They will
survive most conditions for at least a
The eggs are swallowed by the pig
In feeding and hatch In the Intestines.
The young worms then work their way
through the walls of the intestines,
and Into the liver and blood stream,
by which they are carried to the
lungs. While In the lungs they may
cause "thumps" or heavy breathing.
Here they become active, crawl up the
windpipe and Cause coughing. Some
are expelled from the mouth at this
time, hut most are swallowed and then
remain permanently In the Intestines.
Several treatments for worms may
be followed :
Withhold feed from the hog for 21
hours and give a capsule containing
two grains of santonin, three grains
of aloln and eight grains of sodium
bicarbonate. Do not feed for eight or
ten hours after treatment, and then
give one to two taldespoonfuls of ei
som salts or glauber salts In the
feed for every 100 pounds live weight
of the hogs. One capHnle Is sufficient
for a pig weighing up to 78 pounds.
If santonin cannot be procured, oil
eh eno podium, also known as "oil of
worm seed" may he used. Four tea
spoonfuls mixed with one ounce of
castor oil Is the usual dostge. The
resulis will he most satisfactory If
the oil Is given alone rather than with
the feed. Each pig should be fasted
'14 hours before treatment.
If necessary, repeat the treatment
in four to six weeks.
