Winter feeding of hogs



The object of this experiment was to compare the value of winter feeding of shotes and old hogs.

Two lots of hogs were selected, by taking three sows, in moderate flesh, and six of their best shotes. The six shotes will be designated as lot one, and the three sows as lot two.

The sows were Chester White; the shotes a cross between Chester White and Poland-China. One of the sows was three years old, and two were about one and one-half years old. The shotes were about five months old. Both lots were thrifty and fine specimens of their kind. They were given pen room in the basement of the hog house. The pens were eight by sixteen; well lighted; thoroughly cleaned, and freshly bedded daily. The temperature was comfortable, except in extremely cold weather.
