Keep Records On 1,000 Pigs Kossuth County, along with about 30 other counties in Irwa. is actively engaged in the Iowa Swine Selection Program — an organized plan to pfoducc fast- growing, meat-type hogs, reports Dean L. Barnes of Algona, county extension directior. Barnes says there are 26 Kossuth County farmers who belong to the KosKUth County Swine Improvement Association. Inc. This year records are bring kept on approximately 1,000 pigs. President of the a.-woeiMion is Albert Kolla^eh of Bancroft. Other officers include Ray Laabs L6rie Rock, secretary; Geo I)et- mering, Wesley, Charles Dearch, Algona, Edgar Keith, Burt. Warren Brones, Swea City and Bill Kuecker, Whiltemore, directors. Technicians for the association are David Kollasch, Bancroft and Kermil Kuecker, West Bend. These two men do the probing and weighing for the members. Litter record cards for the program — requiring identification and birth date of pigs, weights at 180 days, and backfat measurements—are furnished through the Iowa State College Agricultural Extension Service and can bf obtained at the county extension office in Algona, Barnes says R-rilph Durham, extension animal husbandman at the college is working with the county association in developing the program. Durham says on the- farm records provide figures by which farmers can standardize backfat measurements an;l 180 d a y weights to 200 pound weights on a uniform b;>sis. P;irenl« of future pi^ crops are then selected on the basis of rate of gain, conformation find mealiness. The effort of tlio whole program. Durham continues, hns been to help hog raisers produce the type of meat-consumers want —- lean cuts. This hns led to higher prices at the packing plant for meat-type pigs. Another advantage is that "meatier pigs require less feed per unit of gain than fat pigs." Durham says. Both of these factors, he thinks, are behind the program's increasing use.
