Amount of Corn Required.
It Is well enough to lay down the
rule that ten pounds of corn will make
one pound of pork, but rules may not
give the results expected unless ap
plied under certain conditions. Some
breeds of hogs will produce more pork
on the same food than others, and
even with a selected breed there will
be some Individual animals that will
Increase more rapidly than others. In
the winter season, If the hogs are ex
posed, twenty or thirty pounds of corn
may be required to make a pound of
pork. Care and management are lm
portant, as well as breed and food.

The annual protest of seed men
against free distribution of seed by the
Department of Agriculture has been
sent to the President. It Is signed by
twenty-nine seedsmen, embracing the
whole territory between the Rocky
Mountains and the New England coast.
The protest states that the original In
tention of the law was to obtain seeds
unknown in the United States that
might prove valuable, and In this way
Increase our agricultural productions,
but that this statesmanlike proposition
has been grievously distorted, with the
result that In the main the most com

Feed In Cottonseed Meal.
Many mistakes are made In the feed
ing of cottonseed meal, feeders forget
ting for the moment that it is an ex
tremely concentrated food and needs a
pretty strong stomach to handle it;
hence it should be fed sparingly to
young stock. As a food by itself It
will not do for any considerable period,
but as one of n mixture It has great
value even at a price as high as $35 a
ton, provided the other grains used are
not too high in price. A fine mixture
Is corn meal, the grinding of the corn
and the cob together and the cottonseed-meal.
Or, bran may be used when
the corn is ground without the cob but
in the latter case the ratio should be

Michigan Farmer. From a large num

farmers it was found to cost about 50

was as much as 70 cents per ton, while
in others as low as 35. In filling a
Michigan silo this season where the
horn was heavy and had to bo hauled
about 100 rods to the silo It cost 37

with the distance the silage is to be
