This Iowa farmer has piped water to his hogs from his farmstead 40 rods away.- The first cost is high but it certainly saves enough time in hauling water to pay for the pipe and hydrants before long. You may want to run o pipeline to a corner of several fields where water can be supplied in different directions as the hog pasture is rotated. Plastic pipe can simplify this job. This bunch of "spots" have really done all right on their alfalfa pasture, and will soon be on their way to town. Hog farmers should make good profits on butcher hogs sold next summer and early fall. With hog production down this year, prices are expected to be higher than for the past two seasons. Also, the cost of corn should be lower next summer than in 1056. Creep feeding pigs gets them going good right from the beginning. It's not just for early-weaned pigs — all of them will gain faster if you start them on a creep ration after they are a week or two old. There are a lot of good mixtures which are satisfactory; all should be high in protein content. Antibiotics are "worth their weight in gold" if you have a' disease problem. Vaccination for cholera is taken for granted in the program of most big hog producers. Recently there has been a tendency to be careless and some folks have neglected this practice — opens the door for a serious epidemic. You should also vaccinate for erysipelas if there has ever been any trouble with it on your farm. •1000 Bales without a Miss" "I can get good feeding and good-looking bales in alfalfa, grass hay, or straw. I baled about 200 tons this summer and I have gone as high as 1,015 bales without a miss on the knotter." —Len D. Elliott, Washington. New Farm-Size Baler with Sensational Sure-Tie Knotter Here is a brand-new baler that brings big-baler features . . . such as overhead feed ... to the economy-priced class. The new Case 133 has two- inch longer stroke for faster baling in heavy hay ... two added hay dogs for big, firm bales in fewer strokes . . . fenders shielding knotters and other working parts from dirt and trash to guard you from losing time in field delays. Best of all, its super-simple, positively-timed knotters beat any- 10 Tonnage Balers with New More Powerful Air-Cooled Engine thing you ever saw for tying hundreds .. . sometimes thousands ... of bales without a miss. You save time and you save hay! You save more of the protein-rich leaves, too, because the new Case 133 handles hay fewer times from windrow to bale chamber, and handles it gently all the way.
