AMES, Feb. ll.--The first step in an experiment to develop a more satisfactory system of selecting swine breeding stock has been completed by the animal husbandry experiment station at Iowa State col- A report of the first Z\« years of the swine record of performance comprising records of 44 litters Uirmshed by Iowa breeders has been made public by C. C. Culbertson and other members of the staff. The results show widely varyin" ability of different bloodlines to prcT- duce large litters which gain rapidly, economically and have a high carcass cut-out value. Weich 53.G Pounds The fastest gaining litter, Duroc Jerseys, furnished by McKee Brothers, Creston, weighed 53.6 pounds at 65 days of age when they went on test and gained the weight of 225 pounds in 102 days, averaging 1.68 pounds a day. The average gam of all 44 litters was 1.38 pounds a day. ' The litter requiring the least feed, Poland Chinas furnished by O. J. Hess, Worthington, used 358.' pounds gain as compared to .an av erage of 397 pounds for the 44 litters in the 2/ years' tests. This litter barely ranked among the high 15 in rapidity of gain and carcass cut-out value but ranked third when the'litters were rated on the difference between feed cost and the cutout values. The litter ranking highest in cutout value yielded S12.46 worth of roducts a 100 pounds liveweight. It was made up of Tamworths furnished by Harold Eckermann, Dav- noort.

Price of butterfat .for 1930 averaged 40.8 cents which wa a lower than at any time for more than 10 years previous. However it is likely that the grain fed to the cows brot a better price than if it had been sold as grain and the land is richer because of the stock kept. HAMPSHIRE BRINGS 9205 A buyer came all the way from Texas to Tama county Thursday to offer the top price for the leading animal in the purebred Hampshire sale held by R. L. Pemberton, well- known hog raiser and manager of the Toledo reload station, and the Big- Four farms of Brooklyn. The prize animal, a 4 months old boar, "Inspiration," sired by the $1 000 boar Pemberton sold last fall was sold to Valley Farms, Alma Texas, for 5205. -The 60 head sold at the sale averaged $73 and the top sow. furnished by the Big Four Town Date ot Sale No More Gas In Stomach and Bowels the season. rr MIGHT BE WORSE The Ackley Wor4d says: "Seldom, in February, are eggs as low as 13 cents a dozen, retail- butter, the best creamery, sells in Ackley at 32 cents a pound at tue present time; flour, meat, everything that goes on the man's table is down in price." ' But the Rockford Register of 50 years ago, 1881, quotes wheat 55 to 70c; hogs, ?4.50 per cwt; butter, 14 to 20c per pound; eggs, 20c per dozen; potatoes, 35c per bushel; corn, 21c, and adds "now is the time for farmers to smile." WHEN is A DOCTOR NOT A DOCTOR? ' \ Three men were arrested and brot to Forest .City charged with administering medicine to animals without a veterinarian's license but the charge aaginst them was dismissed. The three men are employed by the Fairview Chemical company at Humboldt, S. Dak., and were represented by an attorney from this firm. They have been selling capsules to dispel bots from the stomach of horses, charging a fixed price for the capsules hut making no additional charge for assisting the farmers in treating the horses where this service is desired. It is claimed that had the men charged additional for this service those who brot the action against them would have had grounds upon which to base their case. WILL GRADE CREAM The F a r m e r s Co-Operative Creamery association at Greene Iowa, has decided by a vote of its members, 102 for and 23 against, to grade cream into two grades. · R. A. Bartlett of the Iowa Dairy extension service addressed tuo meeting. Mr. Bartlett's talk was very interesting and educational to the Litters Are Rated The litters were also rated according to the difference, or margin between feed cost and carcass cutout value. The largest margin was $5.25 and the smallest $2.39. The litter ranking first in feed requirements ranked third in margin, and the Utter ranking first in cut-out value ranked thirteenth in margin These tests indicate that many breeding herds are producing far from the most economical and profitable type of hog. In Denmark where a similar system has been used for about 20 years, the feed requirement a 100 pounds has been reduced from about 400 pounds to 320. Danish bacon also commands a premium on the English market because of the increase in quality.

There would ba only two. grades, a first and secomi, if the creamery adopted the grad-' ing method. One of the outstanding features of his remarks was thi. simplicity in the care of milk am: cream in order to produce a firsf grade of butterfat. At the close of this address the chairman put the question directly .up to the patrons and when tho ballots were counted it was evident tnat this community was ready to have the officers take steps to adopt cream grading in the local creamery.
