Best Pork Comes From
Well Conditioned Hogs
Getting hogs in good condition for
slaughtering is one of the main
points in successful butchering, said
H. W. Taylor, extension swine spec
ialist at State College.
The best pork, he said, comes from
hogs that are neither too young nor
too pld,i too fat or too thin.
Butcher hogs should be well finish
ed. A well finished hog weighing
from 200 to 250 pounds produces the
most satisfactory pork for curing on
the farm. .:
Smooth, evenly fleshed animals
produce a better meat, and will cut
up with less waste than coarse, rough,
wrinkled, and flabby ones. They also
have a more tender, finer textured
product with the right proportion of
fat and lean.
Hogs .that, are gaining, in weight
fere usually the healthiest and will
. make the best meat However, the
loss of a few pounds in shipping be
fore butchering -will not lower the
quality of the meat
The muscles of a thin hog are
tough. They lack the flavor and juci
nesMfound in a well marbled piece
of meat '. . . 1 - -
Extremely fat, heavy hogs cannot
be 4 converted into the best quality
cured pork., ; .
Although hogs may be slaughtered
at any' age; meat from young pigs
is watery and soft and does not have
the flavor , and keeping qualities of
meat from animals a little older.
"Additional information on -: killing
and curing hogs- may be obtained
from county agents or in extension
folder j No. 34, "Killing and Curing
Meat oii the Farm," which will be
sent free upon application to the ag
ricultural .editor at State College. :

Says Red Squill Best
Rat Poison Known
Red Squill is considered by far the
best rat poison known, but its success
depends upon how and where it is
Two of its main advantages are
that it is relatively harmless to do
mestic animals and that it is com
paratively sloW to take effect 'on rats,
said George B. Lay, rodent control
leader of the U. S. Biological Survey,
with headquarters at N. C. State
College.. . .51 l . . y., :
When a fast-acting bait kills the
first rats that nibble it, he explained,
the other rats are frightened away
and are, therefore, not likely to be
poisoned., j 3. . k - ? " '.
Although Red Squill will not kill
domestic animals, it may make them
sick, and for this reason it should be
placed-where they cannot get at it
very easily, Lay pointed out .
c On farm premises,- the bait should
be spread late in the afternoon, after
chickens and .livestock have , more or
less settled down.- Put out plenty of
bait so ' that all rats will have
chance to eat it freely. '
. Look fot runaways, burrpws, and
other places where rats may be, Lay
continued, and . place bait in and
around these places. ... Many, small
bits of bait, about the size of marbles
are better than a few bigger pieces,
i Bats run along beams and rafters
and in other high places, but they
return to the floor . or ground to seek
feed and water. So the bait should
be put out In low places rather than
In those higher up. .
" Red Squill causes a gradual paraly
sis. When the rats feel the effects
coming on, they seek burrows and
other out of the way places to -die.
Few Jf any dead rats are found in
the open and there are seldom if any
serious unpleasant odors. ,-y
However, if any dead rats are
found in the open, Lay cautioned,
they should be buried . o- otherwise
destroyed. " - ' , '
said, "and certain speculators over
the State are taking advantage of
thia misapprehension to buy cotton
for less than its real value."
Quoting government reports show
ing that more than 80 per cent of
the crop ginned to date is running
middling or better, Mr. Mann urged
farmers to refuse to sell their cot
ton until it has been classed under
supervision of a government-licensed
classer and they know as much
about its value as the man who is
"Instead of being 'docked', most of
our farmers should get a premium
for their cotton this year," Mr. Mann
said, as he pointed to figures show
ing that nine out of every ten bales
ginned in the State so far have been
18-16 or longer and as such com
mand a premium when sold cooperatively.
