Onsgaard State Bank, Clerk A HOW TO SAVE IOWA COLLEGE TESTS SHOW AMAZING DIFFERENCE IN LITTERS DEPENDING ON HOW SOWS ARE FED Your spring pig crop's chances of survival arc being decided right now. It depends on the care and feed you give your brood sows now . . . while the sows are building next spring's litters. In tests at Iowa State College typical groups of sows were fed on different rations and accurate records were kept of the results. Here is what happened: COm ALONE ONLY 41% STRONG PIGS When sows at Iowa State CoHcgc were to,, STRAIGHT CORN darin* the winter. 1 SPrinS " iSS "' Cr ° Str °"« ai birt "' «'">ota tests 8 „„,v that poorly -fed sons weaned only 13% ot their pigs. COHN and SUPPIEMEI 85% STRONG FIGS Sows at Iowa State College fed CORN, 1'IAJS SUPPLEMENT produced 85% stronjr pigs. In addition, the sows getting a balanced supplement with their corn farrowed one more pig per litter, and the pigs were half again svs heavy. The Illinois tests »Uw* tliat sows properly fed during gestation weaned 83% of their pigs. Good Care and Good Good Pigs This Spring The first step in reducing your pig mortality is to feed balanced ration* to your sows—including a good blended supplement that's fortified with j^B^^. vitamins and minerals.
