HOG PASTURES AND FEEDS
By A. P. SPENCER

IMPORTANT FACTS

1. Growing pigs require 11/2 to 2 pounds of grain per day in
addition to green pasture, for each 100 pounds of live weight.
2. Sows with litters require liberal feeding of grain, in addition
to green pasture.
3. Hogs fed on peanuts or velvet beans should be finished on
corn, to give solid meat and firm lard.
4. Close grazing of a pasture crop when it is young permanently
injures it.
5. Dusty sleeping quarters are breeding places for lice and fleas.
6. Mudholes are breeding places for worms.
7. Thirty-six-inch wire hog-fencing, fastened down with strong
stakes, will make a good movable fence for dividing pastures.
