These cuts include brisket, Plate, rump, and chuck. Hours jaKe up too much space, and arc better utilized when used for soup slock. _ (2) Cut the chunks or meat Into s-or G-poimd roasLs or similar pieces. The meat should be cut into loaves (similar to bread) Instead of squares, and the Brntn should run lengthwise of the leaf. <3) Be sure the meat has chilled put to from 33 to 38 dcyrecs F Frozen beef should never bo corned, because It may spoil before it thaws put or cures. (4) Cure In crock Jars or wooden containers, (5) The curing formula for each 100 pounds of beef Is: 8 pounds of clean salt, 2 or 3 pounds of granulated or brown sugar, 3 or 4 ounces of saltpeter, and 5 gallons of water. • <6> It is important ivliile prcunr- nig and mixing Hie curing inijre- dients- to use one gallon of warm water to dissolve the mixture- then add the other 4 gallons of water. m Boil the curing mixture so •Ihat bacteria will be killed, and skim the top when foam appears ; (8) Cooltthc mixture to 38 dc- •grees Fahrenheit before placlnc it on the meat. , • .

Their view is thai demand for pork and lard will probably be strong enough to keep lioK prices In a strong position. And they believe Iliac position can be held until October of nest year. There may be periods of depressed hog prices, but the Purdue men don't expect them lo extend over so long a period as they were last winter. They base their optimistic survey on the shnrp decline In hog production which occurred since last winter In , lh c western part of the corn belt. Whether they op- crate in the western part of the corn belt, or elsewhere, hog growers unhappily recall that results from growing too many piggs, and so itmay take considerable "doing" Published By The Delta Implement Co., BIytheville Vol.3 Friday, l>cc. 8 No. 15 will UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE: We close each afternoon at 5:30 - DI - .
