Extra Care for Pregnant Ewe Advised High feed prices, scarcity of sheep throughout -the country and a strong demand for mutton and wool should serve as an incentive for Iowa sheep raisers to take good care of their ewes during the pregnancy period, says C. W. McDonald, extension HOW TO SAVE 1 TO li PIGS PER LITTER... three-quarters of all pig losses occur within two days after farrowing, when pigs are easily sus- ceptible to death from chills. But an up-to-date Pig •M O Brooder, generally operated 24 hours a day for the first 12 days, can cut those losses by half.' In fact, U. S, Department of Agriculture experts say that brooders normally save 1 to l*/2 pigs per litter/ If pigs are lo reach the peak of healthy productivity, it's important that they be protected during thos« vital first f«w days.

Th most important item in a goo< ration is high quality legumi hay. About 1 month to 6 week before lambing time, add a little grain to the hay. Feed one-hal to 1 pound of corn, oats or a mixture of the 2 per head, depending on the condition of the ewe. Good feed,, plenty of water and a moderate amount of exercise will do much to preven pregnancy disease or lambing paralysis in ewes, McDonalc states. Ewes that are carrying twin lambs often have a tendency to become paralyzed anc die a week to 10 "days before they are due to lamb. In case some ewes go down with lambing paralysis, many can be saved by drenching 2 or 3 times per day. McDonald suggests a drench of 3 ounces of molasses diluted by an equal quantity of water. FAST MILKING PAYS By faster milking many dairymen have increased their milk, output from 1,0 to 20 per cent, says Floyd Arnold, extension dairyman at Iowa State College. Weed-c o n t r o 1 recommendations for 1949 will differ little from those of 1948. SELL US YOUR HIDES & FURS Also Your . . . Scrap Iron & Metal CARL STEM Ph. 470 111 6th S. W. Mange Can Cut $4 Off Price of Hog Selling hogs infected with mange may mean a loss of" as much as $4 per head to Iowa farmers, says , Harold Gunderson, extension" entomologist at Iowa State college. Besides slow gains in the feedlot as a result of mange, infected hogs are bought at a discount by packers in winter and early spring. Gunderson advises hog raisers to use benzene hexachloride, which comes in the fowii of a wettable powder, to rid their logs of mange. He says to use the .12 per cent gama isomer concentration on pigs up to 3 months of age and then use stronger concentrations up to .25 3er cent gama isomer on older hogs. Treating sows before they far- 'ow will avoid the loss of young pigs from mange. Each sow needs to be treated individually and carefully, so that the under- parts of the body are covered. Spray applications with an agitator on the sprayer will give best results, Gunderson says. ressures of 60 to 400 pounds per square inch do a good job >vhen about one gallon of solu- ion is applied to each sow. The extension entomoligst autions farmers not to spray logs less than 30 days before icy are sold. If the animals are laughtered within 30 days after praying the benzene odor will e noticeable" in the fat of le animal. The success of the 1949 pig rop may well depend 011 how ic hog raiser feeds his sows uring pregnancy, says E. L. Quaife, extension animal hus- andman at Iowa State college. DC B. f.
