Hoenk Motor Service Phone 391 West of Court House If ever there was a year that we should try to raise every pig farrowed it is 1945. Our Armed Forces and laboring people are going to want Pork. If you will notice the market report in all your daily papers you see just how serious this PORK situation stands. Many of you HOG RAISERS know that anemia takes about 33 1/3% of the pigs farrowed. The other 33 1/3% die from some other cause, and the 33 1/3% left we raise, and make a profit on them. Why not try to raise a larger percentage this year? This Formula as a PIG and SOW Ration has proved its results to hundreds of HOG RAISERS and the cost is very low: 1000 Ibs. Ground Corn, $1-00 per bu $18.00 1000 Ibs. Ground Oats, 70c per bu 21.87 20 Ibs. Salt, $1.00 per hundred 20 30 Ibs. Calcium (Lime) $1.25 per hun 39 60 Ibs. Tanvilac Ironized Cultures \ 13.98 60 Ibs. New Improved Tanvilac \ 300 Ibs- Alfalfa Meal, $2.75 per hun 8.25 Grinding 4.00 2470 Ibs. $66.69 This mixture cost ready for the feeder, $54.00 per ton. Alfalfa Meal is not needed when SOWS and PIGS have good green grass. Keep feeder close to your drinking fountains. These are the names of a few of the feeders in this territory that have fed this ration, and are well satisfied. ~,, ConaUl Jenkins Algona Frank Sanford LuVerne Union Construction Co LuVerne E. C.
