A meat type hog Is ndt a bacon of latd type, says the National Swine Growers Council, but based on a high yield of lean eui* of pork. The one outstanding feature that distinguishes meat type (torn all others Is muscular development. Until recent years, no real attempt was made to distinguish between muscle and fat in evaluating a live ho*, either at the market, in livestock shows, or in the breeding pen. With the present spread in price between Ulan cuts and pork fai, the ratio of lean to fat is the most important item in determining the value of a market hog. Thus arises the necessity for emphasising heavy muscular development with a minimum of finish. Reducing the finish on a lard type hog may improve its value from a market point of view, but does not make it a meat type hog in any sense, particularly'not from a breeding point of view. Most breeders recognise short, fat, overdone hogs for what they are, and are selecting away from that kind. However, there is another kind of undesirable hog that is not as easily re- cognised. He is the hog with adequate length and what appears to be about the right amount of finish, but which when slaughtered, has more finish than expected and very thin muscular development. He is the meatless hog. The distinguishing features of this meatless hog are generally fine bone, a narrow stance in both the front and rear, a loose jowl, a flabby middle, a narrow rump, and tapering hams with considerable crotch fat. He does possess adequate length, but is sadly lacking in muscular development. In more definite terms, a meat type hog (200-210 pounds live weight) is one whose carcass will measure 29.0 to 31.0 inches In length and from 1.1 to 1.6 inches in average backfat thickness, and will have at least 3.75 square inches in the cross section of the loin eye at the tenth rib. He is also the type of hog that can be carried to a heavier weight and still produce a desirable product. The true meal type hog has enough substance and growing ability to reach* market weight of 200 pounds in six months or less under farm conditions. He will retain his mealiness while being pushed for rapid gain. This meat type pig is pleasing in appearance, for he stands squarely on a sound set of feet and legs, is firm and smooth throughout, particularly muscular in the ham and loin, and he mores in a well coordinated manner. He is firm to the touch, and is free from excess finish throughout, particularly along the lop line and in the jowL belly and lower ham. Present information shows that the meal type hog is the most economical kind to produce. Pigs of this type are larger for their weight in terms of bone, muscle and vital organs, and therefore are more vigorous than the lard type. They are as prolific and as good mothers as any hog ever known. Figures available on the feed required per unit of gain show that meat type pigs will gain economically as any other type. Swine Advice From Packers A Typical Selection, of Good Meal-Type Hogs Ready Tat Market — We, of Course, Refer Only To The Hogs — How The Girls Got In This Picture We Don't Know. AMES, IA. —• About 35 meat packing company representatives from many states visited several Iowa hog farms to study production methods and visit with farmers about management problems. George M. Lewis, Chicago, 111., representing the American Meat Institute, packers' organization, told Racek farmers should improve quality by producing the meat-type hog and marketing hogs at a weigh! of 200 to 220 pounds. "They should then spread out farrowings to level out production so that there is a good supply of top quality pork available for consumers the year round.' ' Roy F. Melchior, chairman of the institute's provision committee, said many farmers are producing meat-type pigs, and production of lean, meaty hogs rose to nearly 20 percent of the total in 1955. "Receipts are heavy during three months of the year, Melchior said. "We slaughter twice as many hogs in December as we do in July. To move such a volume of pork in December we have to give it away." Lewis of the packers said total hog production, even at present high levels, wouldn't be any problem for packers if it was spread out evenly throughout the year and thai farmers by such a program would get a better average price for their hogs. The group on lour are members of the institute's provisions committee. While in Iowa they were guests of the Iowa Swine Producers' Association, which sponsored the new boar testing station west of Ames. Ralph Durham, Iowa State College swine specialist, explained work at the testing station as the group looked over the 306 pigs there now. Purpose of the station is to select fast-gaining meat-type breeding stock. Wilbur Plager, fieldman for Iowa Swine Producers and Marion Steddom, association president, who farms near Granger, were in charge of the tour. From Ames, the group went to Waterloo, where they were taken on a tour of the Rath Packing Co. plant. WESTERN BUYERS SELLS TO OVER 200 PROCESSORS OF PORK ...
