MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 10 · 1937 THIRTEEN NEWS AND VIEWS OF INTEREST TO FARMERS Sanitation Would Cut Pig Losses Most of Troubles Can Be Stopped, Says Idaho Expert. Have you lost pigs with scours, thumps, or worms? Do your early pigs get too fat'.' Have ' you had other troubles w i t h your little pigs? Most troubles with little pigs can be eliminated by adoption of .ia simple program which has been thoroughly tested . a n d proved under Idaho conditions, according to Dr. E. M. Gildow, veterinarian with the University o[ Idaho agricultural experiment station. The program involves only lour points: First, a clean sow; second, a clean farrowing pen; third, prevent the pigs from gelling in old hog lols; 'and fourth, place the pigs on clean paslure. Use Soap, Water. "Wash the sow, with warm, soapy water and stiff brush to get the dirt and worm eggs off her body," Dr. Gildow advises. "Place her in a clean house and keep her clean, which means the house must be as clean as the sow. Keep the pigs in the clean farrowing quarters until they are old enough to move to a 'clean ·pasture, and then haul them there so they cannot pick up any contaminated material on the way. After the pigs are four months old they can be placed in old hog lots to be fattened without' danger of serious setback from parasitic infection. "Quite often early pigs get too fat, are short winded, and develop thumps. These conditions are caused by a deficiency of iron in the milk', and indicate a disease known as anemia. Supply a little clean dirt in the pens, starling when the pigs are about five days old and continue until they are moved outside. There is enough iron in most soils to prevent these conditions. Be sure, however, to get the dirt from some source free from parasitic eggs Wll Save Pigs. "This sanitary system not only will save two or three more pigs a litter but will, in addition, practically eliminate the runts. As most hog producers realize from experience, a dead pig is more economical -than a runt. "Sanitation in producing pigs also will increase the rate of gain so that the pigs are ready to market on the average about seven weeks earlier. Pigs raised under these conditions should he made to weigh about 200 pounds at six months of age without difficulty." PULSE OF THE FARM By ARTHUR PICKFORD By FARM EDITOR Last week I traveled a dozen miles east of Manly on No. 9. I had a pleasant surprise. There was snow all the way. In some places there were long drifts that had been five or six feet deep and rods long. But tile surprise came in seeing how the rotary plow had thrown the snow over into the ditch and there was a path as wide as the grade and in many places, [he center of the grade was dry and dusty. The car rolled along smoothly. One fan imagine what thai grade would have been like if all that snow had been allowed to seep into the road bed. Seen Through a Windshield --By A.

Fifteen years ago it could not have been imagined. In earlier days our roads were orphans from November until May. A great snowbank at the lop of a grade,, would be melting every warm day and the water was allowed to run down the wheel track for a 40 rods 'or more and no one diverted it; and it finally spread itself over the roadway starting a mud hole. We are finding that it-is cheaper to preserve a grade and a gravel surface than it is lo make it again. GET ACQUAINTED WITH YOUR NEIGHBOR Now that the incoming renters have all'got moved and have had time to get partially adjusted to their new homes the Farm Editor suggests that the neighborhood call on them. I have used this before but T am going to repeat that motto of the club in Missouri: "Get ac- o.uainted with your neighbor. You may like him." but I hadn't yet cared to get on to it. "Just the same, I felt I could ride it if I made up my mind to |it; so, one day I took it out'into the pasture, where no one could see me from the house, and I wrestled with that thing 'till I was all ot a ssveat; but I finally got the knack of it and I came riding into the front gate from the road feeling pretty big and at noon 1 told the boys 1 was going to ride the wheel back and forth to Mason City, and they laughed. "Well, come Monday morning, I laid out the work for them and my wife watched me get on to the thing and ride off. I didn't make it the first time 1 tried, but 1 rode out of the yard leeling rather proud. I got along fine and ·1 found a place to leave the thing till jury adjourned for the day. "Then is when my trouble began. There was a smart shower and I knew very well that I couldn't ride that wheel on such a slippery road; so I made arrangements to leave it and went to the Cerro Gordo hotel and got a room for the night. "Well, 1 was kinda tired and I went to bed early, and I had hard- IMPORTANCE OF FARM STRESSED IN RADIO TALK Fostering of Better Neighbor Policy Urged by Father LaValette.
