The producers of the pure bred stock
have made it the ruling effort for jear
to reduce the size of the bone, line- the
farmers call for heavy bone animals.
Now tho question presents itself, have
the breeders gone too far in tneir etlbrts
to reduce the amount i.f bone, or do the
farmers fail to appreciate the benefits
arising from small bones. One of the
foremost among English authorities say
I that the mistake is with the mass of far-

Breeders understand that a hog can
be made ready for market at from 7 toy
mouths old, and for market at this age
the bone must be tine. This is necessary,

trouble with the mass of farmers lies la
the fact that they have not grasped the
advanced ideas of the breeder that a hog
should be ready for the market at not
more than 9 months old.
Another matter that the farmers do
n t properly understand as yet is how to
keep tue boue that they desire. They
purchase a coarse boued male because
lliey think their sows ure a little too Hue
boned, with the result that in a tew years
ihe same complaint is made again. This
shows a mistake ia management. Some
times in breeding is the cause, but more

The custom of buying coarse boned

to bring about this is by using a dilfcreni
