Pigs Pay# Profit
Efficint feeding and profitable
pork production go together.
About 80 percent of the pork pro-
duction costs are in feed bills,
says Fred Hale, professor of ani-
mal husbandry, Texas Agricul-
tural Experimental Station, and
one item that many swtne pro-
ducers overlook is vitamin A.
All of our farm grains and mill
products are deficient in vitamin
A, except yellow corn, says Hale,
hogs of all ages require vitamin
A for maintaining their health.
Breeding hogs need it for normal
development and reproduction.
Brood sows produce less milk
when their ration is lacking in
vitamin A and hogs of any age
maintain a greater resistance to
flu and other diseases when their
ration is well supplied with it,
Results of research work done
at the Texas Agricultural Experi-
ment Station show that sows fed
rations deficient in vitamin A far-
rowed pigs that were deformed;
some even had no eyeballs while
others were born /dead.
We offer only one kind o2 serv-
ice and that is the best in effort,
coasideration and cooperativeness
Vitamin A as such does not
occur in green grass or other
plants, but a substance called
carotene is found in green grass,
green alfalfa hay and yellow corn.
This carotene is converted into
vitamin A within the animal's
body, says Hale. Fish oils do con-
tain the actual vitamin A.
Good green pastures will fur-
nish hogs with the necessary vita-
min A, and green pastures are
about the best and cheapest source
of the vitamin, continues Hale.
But if green pasture is not avail-
able, the ration for fattening hogs
should contain from 5 to 6 per cent
of green leafy alfalfa meal, and
brood sows and other breeding
animals should have from 10 to
15 per cent of green alfalfa meal
in their rations, says Hale. The
effective hog producer should plan
to have green pasture for as many
months of the year as possible.
Hogs have the ability to store
quantities of the vitamin in their
bodies and they do this when
there is an abundant supply of
green pasture. Hogs that have
been on green pasture during
the summer can go for three or
four months in a dry lot without
showing vitamin A deficinecy but
Hale adds, it is better to add to
the ration green alfalfa meal dur-
ing periods when green pasture is
not available. There is much more
profit in feeding healthy hogs and
it is often a slow process to nurse
back to health a hog or a herd
that has developed a vitamin de-
ficiency. It is too easy to prevent
in the first place, says Hale.

The ringing of school bells will
soon start thousands of rural boys
and girls back to school, and many
will be leaving home for the first
time. This first day at school will
long be remembered not only by
the pupils but probably by dad and
mother as well. There is a lot
to getting Junior or Sister off to
school these days than providing
them with new shoes and a din-
ner pail, says Mrs. Eloise Johnson,
extension family life specialist of
Texas A. & M. College.
A complete physical check up is
in order, she says. Special atten-
tion should be given to the ears,
eyes, teeth and throat. If it hasn't
already been done the child
should be immunized against
diptheria and vaccinated against
smallpox. A healthy child is a
better student, will learn faster,
and enter into the school activi-
ties, says Mrs. Johnson.
The beginner should be able to
take care of himself and above all
he must be able to get along with
other children. He must know
something about safety. For there
are automobiles to watch, streets
and highways to cross and there
will be new dangers on the play-
ground that he may never have
experienced at home. Mrs. John-
son suggests that you do a little
pre-school teaching at home to
familiarize the beginner with the
new experiences that go with at-
tendance at school. He should un-
derstand what discipline means
and that his teacher is his friend.
Parents should build up a desire
in the child so he'll want to go
