We Pay All Phone Charges DEPT. OF AGRICULTURE LICENSE NO. 42 Hogs Behind Feeder Cattle Saved Corn Hogs following fattening cattle save considerable quantities of feed and convert this would- be waste into pork, tests at the Iowa agricultural experiment station show. Measuring the pick-up of hogs following steers was carried out in conjunction with feeding tests with cattle. The amount of shelled corn saved by the hogs per 100 pounds of gain put on the cattle varied from 57 to 76 pounds per lot. Four pigs followed each group of 7 steers on experiment. Protein saved by the hogs for every 100 pounds of gain made by the cattle varied from 2 to 3 5 pounds for each lot of cattle. It was assumed that all hogs behind the cattle would have ths same ability to produce pork, according to C. S. Culberlson, Iowa State college animal husbandman in charge of the experiments. There is always seme difference in individual hogs and this accounted in part for variation in the amount of feed saved in each lot. The amount fed the cattle is another factor affecting feed saved by hogs. Six-tenths pound of mixed protein supplement, including a mineral mixture, was fed the pigs Mowing steers in addition to what they picked up. Twice daily they were trough-fed as much shelled corn as they would eat, and still pick up grain lost by the steers. A check lot of pigs, similar to those following cattle, provided a basis for determining how much feed equivalent was recovered from the manure. The check lot was self-fed a supplemental mixture, block salt and the same kind of shelled corn as the hogs following cattle. Culbertson points out that if ground corn is fed, hogs won't retrieve as much as if shelled corn is fed. Pigs following heavier cattle will pick up more than those following lighter steers or calves. The main reason that most farmers don't get good gains on hogs following cattle, is that the pigs usually are not fed enough in addition to what ihey are able to pick up from the manure, Culbertson says. CLEAN COMBINE FIRST It's time to make sure the combine is ready to go. First jotf is to clean it. Kerosene will take off rust and dirt. Washing it with a hose will get rid of weed seeds. Don't feed milking cows crops that have been treated with DDT warns Harold Gunderson of Iowa State college. The DDT. may come through in the milk.
