Kossuth County, along with about 30 other counties in Iowa, is actively engaged in the Iowa Swine Selection Program — an organized plan to produce fast- growing, meat-type hogs, reports Dean L. Barnes of Algona, county extension direction Barnes says there are 26 Kossuth County farmers who belong to the Kossuth County Swine Improvement Association, Inc. This year records are being kept on approximately 1,000 pigs. President of the association is Albert Kollasch of Bancroft. Other officers include Ray Laabs, Lone Rock, secretary; 6eo. Detmering, Wesley, Charles Dearch, Algona, Edgar Keith, Burt, Warren Brones, Swea City and Bill Kuecker, Whittemore, directors. ' Technicians for the association are David Kollasch, Bancroft and Kermit 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 be obtained at the county extension office in Algona, Barnes says. Ralph Durham, extension anirrial 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 and 180 day weights to 200 pound weights on a uniform basis. Parents of future pig crops arc then selected on the basis of rate of gain, conformation and mealiness. The effect of the whole program, Durham continues, has been to help hog raisers produce the type of meat-consumers want — lean cuts. This 'has 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," Dnrham says. Both of these factors, he thinks, are behind the program's increasing use. Nile River, longest in Africa, extends for 4,160 miles.
