Sex Hormone« May Reduce
8wine Production Problems
Skilled uee of sex hormones In
hugs offers a possibility of bring
ing more pork to American dinner
tables and of easing the multiple
problems of swine production at
the same time, according to a re
port in a national veterinary jour
Dr. L. M. Hutchings of Purdue
university, writing In the Journal
of the American Veterinary Medi
cal association, said this hormone
technique was developed by Pro
fessors H. H. Cole and E. H.
Hughes of the University of Cali
Injection of the hormone, equine
gonadotropin, into sows after the
fortieth day of lactation shortened
as much as two to four weeks the
period between successive farrow-
lngs, Dr. Hutchins stated.
In addition to shortening the far
rowing season, use of the hormone
would allow greater lifetime pro
duction per breeding animal—at
least one extra litter per sow—pro
vided farmers could adjust their
feeding and management schedules
to meet the stepped-up production
Effectiveness of the hormone is
attributed to its marked stimulat
ing action on the ovaries. In the
hands of experts, ft was over 95 per
cent efficient in bringing about de
sired results, the writer said.

New Animal Repellent
Will Lessen Free Meals
Animal wildlife will find free
lunches fewer and farther between
next year. A new product developed
by the B. F. Goodrich chemical
company and tested by the state of
Maine fish and game department
at its Swan Island wildlife refuge,
ntay be just what farmers have
At Swan Island, the new material
has been sprayed on leafy crops by
biologists who observe that it will
not wash off and that a deer, after
nipping at the treated leaves, will
turn up his nose at future free
meals. Certain types of insects also
are discouraged by the action of
the repellent, researchers revealed.
Crop damage by raiding wild
deer runs in excess of $150,000 an
nually in some districts of Maine
and amounts to millions nationally.
The search for satisfactory repel
lents has been a major project.
