This -lack ol defui'e m'ormation was .especially in the (leld'.crops, which Jn other sections of the country sre postured by bogs or hogged Hence, since 1912 the department has, been irakmg observations in its ern irrigation projects on the utiliza- tion of irrigated field crops, as hog pasture. These investigations include pasture with' 149 lots, consisting of J.795 pastured on aUalfa, clover, corn, Eield peas and milo. Alfalfa Needs Supplementary Ration Pasturing alEalCa with hogs has tieen a. satistactory method of utilizing the forage, and. one' oE the cheapest ways to produce pork. How- ever, to obtain satisfactory results, the alfalfa pasture must he supple- mented with some carbonaceous feed, such as two per, cen i- ration ol corn, barley, mHo, oissnorts. Under such conditions one good acre of alfal- fa pasture will with reason- able surety, about pounds of iork a scapon. Exceptional gains, as as tmunda an acre, were re- ported in the case ,of one lot of logs pastured nn alfalfa, and given a three per cent supplementary ration of corn. Naturally the gains on alfal- fa, depend on the size and qualify of the crop, the character of the boss, the method of management, and the quantity and quality of the supple- nientary Iced. It'Js poor policy to try to mafce pork. on alfalfa, pasturage withpnt supplementary feed. Hogs on alfalfa pasture, supplement jed with about two per cent ration of j com, barley wheat shorts, or rallo, will consume from 250 to 350 pounds j of grain for each hundredweight of I gain. In general the fcrain f ment increases aLlhe hogs get larger. The feeding values of corn, barley, shorts and mlto as supplements to alfalfa pasturage are so nearly identi- cal-thai the choice among these side dishes should depend on prices, cul- tural ititapt ability, and general eco- nomic conditions, Where the grain [is to he grown by the swine raiser, j preference is -usually given to corn, I barley, and tht grain sorghums, de- I pending upon the a flu inability of these crops to local An acre 6f good altalta supplemented with a two per cent ration of grain vill support U.fifjQ pounds of hogs dur- iri" tlio cnttru Krowins Reason.
