Tin * Bublxr Co. profit Farming P* >-% /T—>" Good pasture can save 10 to 20% of the grain and concentrate needed to* produce a market hog. Usually a single acre of hog pasture is said to save 1,000 pounds of corn and 500 pounds of tankage, or their equivalent. An acre of good pasture will carry from 10 to 20 pigs for the season. If the pasture becomes too crowded it will soon kill out and have no more value. A billion blades of grass help to slow this water down. A billion tiny roots hold the .soil at the banks. This picture illustrates how grassland farming is conservation farming. Where water is controlled, more land can be used for farming. How does this truck unloading system compare with the way you feed beef cattle? More and more the trend is toward making one man's time handle more animals. No gates are needed with a system like the one shown here. The truck drives down one side and back on the other side if the feeding center is U-shaped.
