Pecos Valley Stockmen Benin
nig To Raise Hogs.
The famous Pecos river valley
in Western Texas and Eastern
Now Mexico which for years
loomed up like a giant in tho cat
tle and sheep Industries now
bids fair to eclipse tho record
made In those forms of livestock
bv branching out at a hog raising
and feeding country. Hereto
fore the valley has been peopled
mainly by big operators who
have taken advantage only of
those forms of live stock that did
best on the native grasses but
later years the excellent crops
raised on the lands of the valley
combined with luxurant fields of
that wonderful plant alfalfa
have civen opportunity for
swlno to bo raised and fed in tho
valley says the Drovers Telegram.
Geo. H. Webster Jr. the big
sheep man of Carlsbad N. M.
who was on the market this week
with a consignment of clipped
lambs gave a few statements
concerning the boom that hog
raisinir has taken in tho valley.
According to him several of the
biir operators in the valley havo
decided to branch out in hog
raising in junction with their
cattle and sheep interests. Not
only have the old timers been
suddenly taken with the notion
but new settlers from the East
have settled down to feeding
porkers in earnest. Mr. Web
ster himself will soon engage ex-
tensively in tho new business.
W. C. Hamilton of Roswell is
another new convert to swine
raising in the valley.
The premium for extensive
handling of porkers however
belongs to Clinton Chisholm of
Roswell. Mr. Chisholm is a
young man in years and not an
old timer in the valley but what
ho lacks in those respects he
makes up in others. A few years
ago he graduated from tho Ohio
college. Now he is the owner of
.1000 fine brood sows - most of
which are duo to farrow this
March or April. A neighbor of
Chisholm's who was in a short
time ago with cattle said he
looked for that part of the valley
to be one vast pig pen before tho
summer rolled around. However
that be Mr. Chrisholm certainly
has a big stock of ho0s on hand
and when his new crop comes in
will have a -herd" of hogs that
will put tho small feeders of
Kansas Missouri or Oklahoma
completely in the shade
Nearly all of'his sows were
bought in Kansas. Ho thorough-
ly canvassed the purebred herds
along the Santa Fo in the Sun-
ilower state and secured stock
that would bo a credit to tho
valley as well as money makers
wheu sent to the market. All
during the drouth last summer
while many Kansas farmers were
sending in their hogs to market
as fast as thoy could get thorn
together Mr. Chisholm went
from place to place buying his

points in the valloy is 81Ac. and
cattlomon havo found it 'pays to
ship in grass steers at that tanll.
At present there is no hog tariff
between Kansas City and upper
valley points such as Roswell
and Carlsbad. From Pecos City.
however at the lowes end of the
valloy there is a rate of 57c.
Hcg men claim that the present
prices hogs aro bringing will
make shipments pay even at that
rate. It is expected that tho
impetus tho hog raising business
is receiving in tho valloy will
result in a rate being made in
tho :ieui future.
Officials of the Santa Fe which
toad taps tho valloy declare
that part of the country is ideal
for hog raising and feeding.
