mediately before killing? ' ' "j
Answer; Norths animals should
not be fed Idf tttIeasif bdurs be
fore" they are killed,' but should have
plenty of water." This gives;' the hog

ment and feeding 'is practiced,, the

intervals during the day. This latter
practice-overcomes idleness in the . "

Where grain is fed twice a day about, -vq
