This Sow Has Problem, But There's a Cure MUfCMlNSON, Kan, (UPD ~ Farmer Robert L. frank feared today he has a sow with a psychological, problem that may have started in infancy when its own mother stepped on it. Mrs. Frank took the injured piglet into the home, fed it whisky and aspirin, and nursed it back to health. The pig grew into a normal looking 350-pound sow and— as sows often do — became a mother. But, unlike a good mother, she killed her first nine pigs as soon as they were born. The Franks were disturbed, but decided to give the Hampshire-Yorkshire another chance. The second births occurred Saturday. The traumatic sow killed the first pig, but the Franks quickly grabbed the next nine when they Were born. A half-sister of the mother sow, who had just weaned her own litter, adopted the hungry little pigs. The Franks plan to send the sow to a place that would end her psychological problems. It's called a packing house. Angus Cattle Field Day Held at Avon DEMONSTRATION MODEL — Bo Bradley exhibits a registered Angus out of the herd owned by her father, T. A.
