BILLINGS COUNTY PIONEER HOG FROI~fTS VARY FROM FARM TO FARM Large differences in the profR from hogs on individual farms were brought out by data pub- lished by an Illinois farm man- egemenft service, according to M. A. Kirkeide, NDAC assistant extension livestock agent. About 650 hog farms in Illinois provid- ed information for the compar- ison, based on 195@ records. Farms were divided into "high ret~urn" and '"low return" farms. Returns alcove feed cost per litter were $56 for the high and minus $15 for the low return farms. It took 100 pounds more feed for low return farms to produce 100 pounds of pork than it did the high return farms. Returns per $100 of feed fed were $136 for the high return farms and $92 far the tow return farms. Average selling prices per pound were also slightly better. Two other footers apparently affected 5he difference in re- turns betw~m hi~rh return farms turns between high and low farms pigs weaned per litter and death loss after weaning. The high return farms weaned more pigs per litter and lost fewer after weaning than did the low return farms. It adds up to this, says Kirkeide: "pigs saved per litter and the efficiency of feed- tag are what determine ~he net returns." In spite of the lower average f~vn inc~ne in 1959, some farm- ers turned in a creditable show- Lug. "Luck" often pla~,s an im- portant role in individual years wi~h favorable weather produc- ing high crop yields or a forf- taste price change resulting in profitable feeding operations. However, there are large differ- ences in management ability of individual farmers and in pro- duct~n efficiency of diffe~rent sizes and types of farms. 0 KEEP BALANCE OF SALT AND WATER Seeing to it that your live- stock has plenty of water is the best safeguard against salt pois- onir~g That's the w~rd 2ram NDAC veterinarian L A. Schip- per, who points out tha~ water goes hand in hand with salt in- take. W ~2t cable, there's li',ttae chance of overfeeding salt, if they have enough water to drink. Hogs arel m~t susceptible to salt poisoning. Even a waterer plugging up overnight can de- ~eriVe hogs of enough water to ad to salt poisoning. Cattle are least susceptible to salt paean- irtg and sheep rank in abou~t the middle. Livestock getting very small amounts of salt during the sum- mer is also prone to salt poison- ing. Dr Schipper explains that in case more salt is made oval- able, tlie salt Im~gry animals overea*, taking on quantities of salt large enough to become to- xic and often fatal. Feed salt in limited ~quanitities at first if the animals haven't been getting it before. The way salt-starved animals eagerl~ overeat saR when it is 'offered showlg how irn~rta~t salt is to their well being during the summer months. In one stu- dy, lambs getting enough salt gained as much as 30 ,per cent more than lan~bs receiving no salt. Keep a steady salt suoply in franc of *.he animals at all ~imes, preferably in loose form. so they can meet their salt requirements at will. Increasing salt intake is ore methods used to prevent renal calculi (water belly) in sheet> and cattle. It is done by mixing three to fivo per cent salt into the feed. When this is done, i~ is particularly Lmpor~ant that plenty of fresh wter is avai lable at all times. STOCKMEN FAVOR BEEF HERD TEST Several North Dakota pure bred breeders and producers of ' commercial herds are using per- formance tes.ting of beef cattle to help in selecting replacements MIDSHIPMAN AT 14, DURING THE REVOLUTION, MERCHANT CAPTAIN AT 23.

"Performance testing offers a means of checking the capacity of a beef animal to produce," says Kirkeide. "Stockmen want animals that will gain quickly ~md ~ok~nomically, as well as yield a high propportion of the cuts most desired by fine con- sumer." Studies have indicated the top third of one cow herd returned three times the net income as did the lower third of the herd. The livestock specilist gives 2 essentials in setting up a pro- gram of this kind: 1) A scale must be available to weigh the caves at weaning time and again at tile end of the feeding period. 2) Each of the cows and caves Individuals may be identified t~ horn brand, neck chain or cedure should be followed after a 140-day feeding period either on full feed or a maintenance ration. Further information and forms for performance testing of beef cattle may be obtained from your local county extension agent. brand number.
