Pie-melons And Pigs

I have 14 sows which were fed almost entirely on pie-melons and milk,

not much of the latter. Out of the 14, only 3 sows have saved any pigs;

the rest lost all the young they had. Four or five sows that for the

last three weeks have had no melons, nothing but green grass and a

little whole barley each day, are saving their pigs all right.

Pie-melons are poor feed and pigs which are not given anything better

ought to fail. "Green grass and a little whole barley" is much better

feed than pie-melons. Pie-melons are useful fed with alfalfa hay or some

richer food.
