Increasing the percentage of the cuts shown in white and decreasing iho proportion of fat and trimmings shown in the shaded area will increase the value of the live hog as well as the carcass. Keep this thought in mind in evaluating animals. BUYING HOGS IS OUR ONLY BUSINESS. A FAIR, SQUARE DEAL ALWAYS! BEST BUY IN MEAT t Pork will make your meat dollar go farther today than any other meat, according to F. Eugenia Whitehead, professor and head of the State University of Iowa home economics department. Pork is not only the best huy in dollars and cents. Professor Whitehead points out, but is an excellent bar- ga>n in terms of nutrition. It is one of the best sources of good quality protein, providing all of the essential amino acids, which are the chemical "building blocks" of which protein is made. While there are some 60 known nutrients needed for health, protein is the most important one, the SUI professor explains. And homemakers today are concerned with the quality as well as the amount of protein served their families, she adds. They know that a good source cf anim&l protein as well as vegetable protein will assura the presence of the essential amino acids in the diet. Three ounces of pork chops contain the same amount jf protein —- 20 grams — as three ounces of sirloin steak. Dr. Whilehead explains. The average serving of meat is from three to four ounces.
