A quick look at one of four important factors shows why some hogmen net three dollars to the average farmer's one. No. 1 — Big Litters Raised A litter of five pigs weaned will do well to pay expenses on the sow and pay their way to market. Just a break even figure with a litter of this size. The average farmer (who weaned about seven pigs per litter last year) has only 2 profit pigs at market time. Many PURINA Hog Program feeders can show records of weaning 9 or more pigs per litter. They market more than TWICE as many "PROFIT PIGS" as the average Hogman. FEED & SUPPLY *<9 *>fko 'JaH^x_ GRINDING £. M/ XING' COMPLETE Peimuzetz SERVICE Frankville News MRS.
