Lowest Number of Animals Lost In

(Prepared by the United States Depart'
ment of Agriculture.)
Accorllng to records of the United
States department of agriculture for
the 13 months from April 1, 1918, to
Anrll 30. 1919, hog cholera killed 2,815,-
004 hogs, valued at $62,042,688.16, in
the United States. This is the lowest
loss by numbers for a similar period
in the live stock history of the United
States, but on account of the high
price of hogs the monetary loss was
heavy. For example, during the year
ending March 31, 1913, hogs number
ing 6,064,470 and worth $58,833,653
died from cholera, while the next year
the disease took 6.304,320 hogs worth
Department experiments show that

showed external signs of sickness
losses average nearly 29 per cent
This shows that the man who puts oil

hogs are sick with cholera stands onlj
about one chance in seven of prevent

to maintain hog yards and barns in

MEAT PRODUCTION IS BEHIND
Consumption Is Increasing, However,
Points Out Animal Husbandry
Head of Kansas.
Meat production has not kept pace
with the growth in population in thi
United States, according to Dr. C. W,
McCampbell, head of the animal hus
bandry department, Kansas State Agri
"In 1900 there were 680 head oi
cattle in the country for every 1,00
persons," he said. "This has now been
reduced to 350 head. ' !
"The 1 figures for hogs and sheej;
show a similar reduction. In' nine
years hogs have dropped from 800 tc
600 head for each thousand persona
and sheep from 880 to 450 head."
. Doctor McCampbell said the meat
consumption of the country is increas
"The consumer must look for higlj j
prices from now on," he said. "The
capacity of the ranges is decreasing,
and any increase in the supply of beel
must come from the farm, where the
expense of production is much greatei
than on the range."
MORE LIVE STOCK DEMANDED
It Means Less Marketing of Cropi
and Less Expense to Producer
Animals Consume Feed. .
More live stock means less market
ing of crops and less expense to those
who produce the crops. Animals con
