These cuts include brisket plate Rump and Chuck. Bones take up too much space and Are better utilized when used for soup Stock. <2> Cut the chunks of meat into 5-or 6-Pound roasts or similar pieces. Tile meat should be Cut into loaves similar to bread instead it it i squares and the Groin should run Lengthwise of the loaf <3> be sure the meat has chilled out to from 33 to 58 degrees f. Frozen beef should never be corned because it May spoil before it thaws out or cures. <4> cure in Nock jars or wooden containers. <5> the curing formula for each too pounds of beet is 8 pounds of clean Salt. 2 or 3 pounds of granulated or Brown sugar 3 or 4 ounces of Saltpetre and 5 Gallons of water. <6 it is important while preparing and mixing the curing ingredients to use one gallon of warm water to dissolve the mixture then add the other 4 Gallons of water. <7� boil the curing mixture so that bacteria will be killed and skim the top when foam appears. <8> Cool the mixture to 58 degrees fahrenheit before placing it on the meat. <9 cure in a Cool place and watch for ropy brine.

Mcgillicuddy Willits More butter. A a Many Corn Hig Farmers Are probably wondering about what to do in response to the governments request for More pigs their uncertainty is easy to understand when you remember the a boating they took during last Winters period of glutted markets and depressed prices. Recent Market activity might indicate that More of Hie same is in store. However agriculture economists at Purdue University done to see it that Way. Their View is that demand for pork and lard will probably be Strong enough to keep hog prices in a Strong position. And they believe that position can be held until october of next year. There May be periods of depressed hog prices but the Purdue men done to expect them to extend Over so i no a period As they were last Winter. They base their optimistic Survey on the Sharp decline in hog production which occurred since last Winter in the Western part of tilt a Corn Belt. Whether they operate in tile Western part of the Corn Belt or elsewhere hog growers unhappily recall that results from growing too Many Piggs and so it May take considerable a doing Quot on the part of Ufa to get them to step up production to the level desired in our food managers.
