MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE Heads Extension Economics Group S. II. Thompson, marketing specialist and head of the agricultural economics section of the extension service. America Due for Largest Crop of Pigs DBS MOINES--The · coming two months will witness the birth of one of the biggest crops of spring pigs America has produced in years, authorities of the American foundation for animal .health predicted in a forecast made here Wednesday. "The tragedy of this bumper crop, however, is that more than one-third of the pigs will die before farmers can bring them to marketable age," the foundation's experts declared. l; That is the "history of each year's pig crop and there are no signs that 1939 will be any different from previous years in this respect;" Warned Farmers Farmers are being especially warned to be on the lookout for pig anemia, scours and early spring diseases which may be due to vitamin deficiencies. "External symptoms of anemia are thumping of the side:, paleness of the skin and roughness of the hair," says the foundation's bulletin. "Pigs so affected generally die in a few days, unless veterinary treatment has been instituted in time. A good partial preventive of anemia is a piece of clean, fresh sod placed in the pen every few days. Can Be Prevented "White scours are generally caused by unsanitary conditions and can generally be prevented by thoroughly cleansing and disinfecting the pens, seeing that the sow is clean and that plenty of sunshine is let into the pigs' quarters. "Pigs should be moved out to clean, fresh pasture as early as possible, vaccinated against cholera around weaning time and kept away from old lots and sources of disease and internal parasites until they are ready to market. If farmers will follow the simple practices of sanitation and disease prevention, they - will market a much larger share of this year's bumper pig crop." Weed Eradication Meetings Scheduled District conferences for weed eradication will be held April 3 to 14, announces Dr. R. H. Porter, extension plant pathologist. The conferences, which will be for county weed commissioners, county supervisors and county agents, will be handled jointly by the extension service and the state department of agriculture. The department of agriculture authorities 'will inform county weed commissioners and County supervisors of their responsibilities under the Iowa weed law. Dr. Porter and Dr. Sylwestcr of the Extension Service will discuss methods of killing noxious weeds and help those present to plan weed eradication programs for the coming year. v The schedule of conferences is: April 3, Red Oak; April 4, Chariton; April 5, Fairiield; April 6, Cedar Rapids; April 7, West Union; April II, Denison; April 12, Spencer; April 13, Mason City and April 14, Ames. .4 Full Face Collar 20-in.
