A brood sow that Is fed one pound of
tankage with each peck of com. while
on pasture, will produce healthy, vig­
orous pigs.
A year ago last spring farrowing
records were kept on 5'1 Kansas farms
by the experiment btatlon of that
From thesy records It was
found that 283 sows that were fed
com properly balaaced with tankage,
skim milk, oil meal or alfalfa, far­
rowed i.flflO pig«. <»r an average of
10.1 pigs per litter. These anws also
had good surroundings and were well
cared for. Of these pigs 84 per cent
were raised to weaning time. In other
words 8Ui pigs per litter were thrifty
when old enough to wean.
Another lot of ldd sow* on 11
farm* farrowed an average of 7.2 pigs
per sow snd rglsed 3.8 pigs per litter.
These sows had received practically
nothing but com. The unbalanced ra­
tion decreased the size of the weaned
litters by 40 per cent. Much results
are not uncommon; on the contrary. I

Minerals Fed to Steers

kflnerels for steers were tried at
the Iowa station during the past win­
ter. A mixture of 50 pounds ground
limestone, 50 jniunds spent bone-black
and one-third ounce of i>otassitiiu Io­

of one ounce per head per day. The
steers In this experiment got shell«!
