Feeding Rys to Pigs.
I will say that rye Is a xnfc and suit
able feed for pigs, with some excep
tions, writes a Michigan hog grower la
American Agriculturist. In my own
priK-tlce I have fed rye to growing pigs
and fattening hogs with very good re
sults. I always grind It tlnely and
mix witli other feeds. The rye mixed
with cormaeal and bran, equal parts,
makes an excellent grain feet! to mix
In with the swill for ti e trowing pigs.
It seems to be relished by them, as
they will clean the trough as well a
when wheat middlings are used In
I never feed rye meal to pregnant
sows and would not advise any one to
venture to try It with them. Rye meal
for growing pigs Is not quite ns valua
ble as wheat middlings, but for fatten
ing purposes it Is worth a little more.

Mr. Frank C. Hanrahan, a promi

It is a great remedy and one of the

I handle some others for the same
purposes that pay me a larger profit,

him, that I give it t lie preference."

Disk plows have lu recent years
cwiue Into use. writes C. W. lturkett In
American Agriculturist. I tike them
for the light ty.ies of soil wheu free
from stones, gravel and roots and
rather abundantly supplied with vege
table matter. In sticky soils where
the moldlsiard plow will not scour the
disk Is popular, lu soils where the
nioldlM.ird type works well there Is
little to gain by using the disk. The
draft of the latter Is ofteu greater and
the plow Itself Is clumsy. The disk is
better for very dry land and often Is
the only means for plowing such.
