PRO--D-UcT:ION-STORY- of Medina and located additional Donald Wischow, Sentinel But- te, is a livestock man who knows exactly what his hog enterprise is returning, because he keeps care- ful records of both income and out- go from year to year. Not only does Wischow know exactly where he stands, but he is able to profit by past mistakes and experiences and Railor the feed and m~nagement of each new pig crop according to what past experience has shown to produce the most profit Fox example, in 1958, Wischow had pigs farrowed between Mar. 28 and Apr. 5. The pigs were fed only starter and fattener rations, with no growing ration. All the feed was pelleted and delivered to the farm. This year he experienced some phosphorus deficiency. He had hy- grom~sin added to both the starter and the rations in 1958. Feed cost, for the 70 head from birth to market, was $1,254.35, ana he sold 14,570 pounds of pork, live weight, for an average weight of 2~ pounds. His gross sales totalled $2,856, for a profit'per pig over feed cost of $22.89. Feed cost per 100 pounds of pork, from birth to market, was $8.61, and 290 pounds of feed were fed per 100 pounds gain The 1958 crop of pigs was marketed in Septem- ber. In 1959. Wischow had his pigs farrowed from March 8 to March 29, and he used a better quality boar. This year he got his pelleted feed at the elevator, and. remembering the phosphorus deficiency from the year before, added dicalcium phos- phate to the ration, as well as hy- gromycin to the starter and grower rations only. He also gave iron-dextran shots at three days to prevent anemia. This year he used three different rations---~artera, igrower ~nd ~'at tener. There was some trouble with erysipelas.
