FORTY-NINE MILLION FISH STOCKED IN IOWA STREAMS In summarizing its activities during the past year, the State Conservation Commission today announced that over 49,000,000 fish were stocked in Iowa's waters during 1935. According to the report, 460,000 of the 45,393,608 fish stocked were largemouth black bass and 40,000 were small-mouth black bass. Crappies numbered 500,000; bluegills 500,000, bullheads 950,000, catfish 63,000, fingerling size wall-eyed pike 180,000, yellow perch 32,000, trout, brook, rainbow and brown 290,000, and the balance were wall-eyed pike fry. The fish were raised in hatcheries or rearing ponds operated by the state or taken from the Mississippi River during rescue activities. As far as facilities will permit, the Commission in hatching and rearing fish, raise them to fingerling or adult size before stocking. Most of the fish from the Mississippi River are fingerling or adult size. Fish of this size are better able to take care of themselves when released in new waters. All fish stocked by the Commission are placed in public waters. No fish are placed in streams or lakes shown to be highly polluted or in privately- owned waters unless an agreement with the owner has been made permitting the public to fish in such waters.

THE SPRING TIGS SHOULD BE PUSHED FOR EARLY MARKET The fact that more pigs will come on the market this next fall than for the past several years leads agricultural economists at Iowa State College to predict a more than seasonal decline in hog prices when the full force of this spring's crop hits the market next September and October. This prospect of a lower market should encourage Iowa feeders to "push" their spring pigs along at a [aster rate than usual in order to get them marketed before the decline sets in. believes C. C. Culbertson, head of the animal production sub-section in the Iowa Agricultural Experiment Station, Ames. Pigs farrowed around the middle of March can be "pushed" to 200 or even 225 pounds by Sept. 1. Culbertson says, if they receive a full feed of grain and adequate protein supplement while on pasture. Corn fed at the rate of 4 pounds per 1 (10 pounds of live weight and kept before the pigs at all times will give maximum gain and finish, he states. Some feeders may want to use oats in the pig ration this spring and summer, but Culbertson warns that not more than 20 per cent of the grain ration should be made up of oats if fast gains are desired. Tankage, soybean oilmeal. skimmilk or buttermilk will meet the requirements of a protein supplement. If the pigs are on a good pasture (alfalfa, clover, rape or leafy bluegrass) \i pound of tankage or its equivalent in one of the other proteins will provide maximum gains, Culbertson believes. Absolute freedom from parasites and disease is necessary if pigs are to weigh 200 pounds in 5 months.
