Pigs on Cowpeat at
(Ily W. II. DODHON totilslana Experi-
ment Htntlon )
Ono of tlio most frequent questions
asked In regard to grazing Is "How
many hogs will on ucro carry?" It Is
ImpoHslbla to nnswor such n general
question lu a very definite way. It
can bo niuwercd opiroxlmatcly In the
Hogs from eight to twelve months
old ought to nvcrago a pound and a
half to two pounds of grain per day
during the fattening period. Wo know
approximately the amount of food re-
quired to mako this amount of grain
and If wo make a guess of tlio yield
wo can mnko an appropriate guess of
Uk number of hogB required to con-
autio tlio crop In n given time. A
crop of 25 bUBhcls of corn with the ac-
companying cowpcas ought to mako
400 pounds of pork or bu tbo equiva-
lent of feed for ono hog tor "00 days.
It wo want to consumo that amount In
30 days it would require seven hogs.
If tho hogs are of mixed ages Includ-
ing pigs. It will carry an averago of
ten to twelve hogs per aero. Peanuts
would mako a little moro pork por
aero than corn but when tho carbohy-
drates aro added to moro nearly bal-
ance tho ration tho pigs will bo main
tained for as long a tlmo on peauuta
as tho corn will carry them. The same
acreago In sweet potatoes will carry
the hogs from ono and one-half to two

ONE-CROP SYSTEM NOT SAFE
Objections Given by Bradford Knapp
at Conference of Bankers Diver
sification Is Remedy.
Seven objections to a one-crop sys-
tem of agriculture aro set forth In Cir-
cular No. G of tho ofllco of tho sec-
retary which Is n reprint of an ad-
dress delivered by Ilradford Knapp at
a confcrctico of southern bankers.
Tho reasons why a one-crop Bystem Is
unsata are stated by Mr. Knapp to ho

KEEP HENS FREE FROM LICE
Fowls Should Ba Examined and Dust-
ed Ylioroughly With Good Pow-
der or Blue Ointment.
Examlno the pullets nnd hens for
lice nnd dust thoroughly with n good
Inaect powder or npply a mixture of
two parts vaseline and ono part mer-
curial or bluo ointment about tho slzo
of a pea one Inch below tho vent
of tho bird rubbing the mixture light-
ly on the skin.
An application ot this ointment two
or thrco times a year will keep the
fowls freo from llco. Whero Insect
powder Is used it nhould ho applied

abundanco of favorable growing
weather cattle may bo required to
help keep tho pasturo grazing down.
It will therefore bu seen that with
this system of cropping there Is a
pretty good balunca of tho carrying
capacity of tho land with tho avail-
aLlo supply of twigs for grazing.
VALUE OF CREAM SEPARATOR
As Much Milk Obtained From Four
Cows Where Machine Is Used aa
From Five Ordlnirlly.
Tho farmer who uses a cream sepa-
rator obtains as much milk from four
cows ob is obtained from flvo cowb
whero cream Is raised in a pan. Tho
separator method gets 25 per cent
more cream from tho milk and thlB
will pay fur a separator In n year In a
dairy Jiord of ten or moro cows. As
tho cream Is separated whllo fresh and
sweet rlpcutng can bo controlled and
butter of much bettor grndo can bo
secured than If tho crenm Is raised by
Tho uro of a separator lightens tho
work for tho housowlfo. Tho machine
Is kept In a small room adjoining the
barn nml only tho separator parts aro
brought from tho houso. Theso In-
Btcad of numerous pans and crocks
nro returned to tho kitchen for wash-
ing after tho fresh skim milk has been
fed to tho cahes and pigs.
A well matlo separator will last for
yenrB In spite of the fact thnt It Ib put
Into service twlco a day. Tho sepa-
rator should run for from four to six
years without repairs if reasonable
enro Is used.
BIRDS SPREAD HOG CHOLERA
Pigeons Flying From One Farm to An.

Unconllned pigeons flying from

SILAGE IS CHEAP ROUGHAGE
Three Tons Will Feed Dairy Cow
Thirty Pounds a Day for 81
Months Cost Variea.
Sllago Is tho cheapest rough teed
thnt can ho produced. Its cost varies
somo in different sections and nn dif-
ferent farms but farmers who have
silos find that nfter charging up tho
rental ot tho land the cost of grow-
ing tho corn the filling ot tho alio and
wear of machinery their sllago costs
them from two dollars to two dollars
and a half per ton. When we figure
that thrco tons of sllago will' foed a
dairy cow 30 pounds a day for all
months It Is easily seen that no othar
roughage con ba produced so cheaply.
