The juicy pork chop, tho Hsvory sausage and tile succultsnt ham-bone are high priced luxuriea i on to-day's blllB-of-fare. The time when the average family laid in a porker as imrt of the winter's stip-plies, paying from 5 cents to G'/j coDte per pound for the carcass, has long gone by. To-day hogs are fetching 3 9 cents and over, per pound on I the hoot and the supply Ib wholly inadequate to Iho duraaud. This ac-noutita tor current prices of "18 cents j)er pound tor chops ejid SJO ce'nts tor choice sausage meal. Mr. Farmer Ik not blind to this opportunity to increase his income. Bverywhere hp is giving more attention to the brec-dinK of hogs. This is sartlcularly true in Canada's Western Provlncee where favorable climatic conditions reduce disease, dangerb to the mlnimnm. The fertility ot the pratrica' virgin soli makes powible \\\f^ rocoi-d-brealilng yleids of grajn tliat Canadian farm millions of Kuropp and is turned to nccount in the raising of hog.s. The sort of foods that maico for good pork grow Ihfre in abundance, even on tiio cheap lands, and Iiors can be rained there at less expense than eJ.sinvhere, The principal hog foods of Western^ Canada are alfalfa, oats, barley and �Aheat. Alfalfa, the Iclne of hog fodders, is grown successfully throughout tho west, espei'lally in the Irrigated areas o* i5outhorn Allj'Srta. OatB and barley yield heavy crops and makft pork and bacon of the finest flavor,'the sort that commands the highest prices. For growing hogs there is no food superior to Western Canadian oats which weigh up to 52 pounds per bushel and contain a large amount of meat and comparatively small amount of hull, For fattening, barley Is used chiefly and apart from the hull. Canadian barley is equal in food 'valufl to com and produces a superior quality of meat.

No class of stock brlURs money into the farmer's jiocket more quickly than do hogs.

The raising of hogs ha.i meant big money for (Canadian farmers the past yea'r. In the Provlnco ot Alberta alone, the live iUocU estimate ot the Dpparlmont of AgrlcMilture for 1017 give the number of hogs at 730,237 with a valuation of $10,95H,D.'')5. it la confidently predicted that tho li)18 record will go far beyond these llK-urcs.
