COLUMBIA, Mo,, — Feeder pig snlcs during (he last two years are having their effect on hog production In Southern Missouri. Fann- ers nre now producing for a definite mnrkol — that of the commercial feeder from the top grain producing areas of Missouri, Town, Illinois nnd ncljncent states. Farmers who can use improved pasture find purebred meat-type bonrs along with good management nrc finding that buyers will pay them five to $15 per hundred more than the going top for fat marketable hogs. At the recent West Plains sale in Howell County, 649 feeder pigs sold lo commercial buyers for an nvernge of $31, per hundred — nine dollars more than the top for finished hogs thnt day, But tlint wns the average for the sale. The top soiling pigs brought $42.50 per hundred. They were n pen of light but quality pigs. This pen of pigs WAS trim and unfit. They hiul been fed right and showed a lot of thrift. bloom nnd were ready to go ahead In the feedlot nnd make Iho buyer money. To contrast this another group of pigs, similar in weight sold for $21.50, just over half much as the top pen. They were chuffy, rough haired Inrrty type pigs which wore not loo well bred. They showed Inck of mnntipfement. A purebred boar coupled with good pnslun;, some protein nnd corn nubbins would hnve paid the own er of these pigs top dividends. Both groups of pigs mentioned were srnnll, weighing about 30 probably made their owners more net per head. For 'example. Lloyd Everett Summers. Jr., sold 41 head of light p*K s in the West E'Jains sale which brought $40. per hundred. But the head of 70 pound piss which brought him $30. per hundred actually made the largest net. These returns bear out observations mndfi by James Reynolds, University of Missouri marketing specialist, nt consignor meetings following the sales. PiK$ with more stretch which were; neat and trim sold up to $2.50 per hundred better than groups of similar quality which lacked stretch. Chuffy, lardy type hofjs sold down the* scale by as much ns five to eight dollars per hundred. The fanner who supplies feeder pigs needs especially to shoot, for biff litters, Reynolds says. Then with good mnniigenin-nt he can mnkc n Rood net on his pig crop For the spring sales, he believe,s that pige should weigh 86 to IOC pounds, These heavier pigs out best, although they won't bring as much per hundred as the 3< pound proups. Buyers also can finish them lor a good sum me market. r Fall sales are slightly different Reynolds says:-:.* Buyers will bu 30 to 100 poimrFpigs.

There is little question but tha bnlh the light and heavy pig.s wt Cottonseed -eed Is Topic Of Bulletin The possibilities of cottonseed hulls nnd meal as farm feeds have i definite, though limited place .nrve.v of 2!)0 farmers and 13 cotton j mill operators lina revenled. The study was made In the mill areas of Tennessee, with most, of the mills serving other slates, Including Missouri. It was a Southern Regional Cotton Marketing Project. Farmers feed cottonseed products largely to dairy and beef cattle, the survey showed, and most of the feed is obtained direct from the mills. Potential local supply, avail- bility.. pricing policlefi. prospects for increasing the number of animals fed these products, type of livestock fed and specific weeding practices, attitudes and opinions of farmers, potential market outlets in other arens were found to influence market possibilities for cottonseed Bullet-Proof Vest* Will Go to Planters JOHORB BAHRU, Malaya 'AP> —American carbines and bulletproof, vests will soon be protecting Malayan' rubber planters against Red terrorist attacks.

Malaya's rubber planters, who have lost 64 colleagues in the past three years in terrorist ambushes, have been demanding better protection. products. Farmers feed cottonseed products because they were cheap, supplemented homegrown feeds in short supply, were convenient to feed, and sometimes prevented bloat and diarrhrea, the survey revealed.
