FARMERS' COLUMN.I ,I
FARMERS' COLUMN. I Prices obtained at Garth's last auction-mart were considered satisfactory. Last week's fine weather enabled most of the farmers in Wye Valley to gather their hay in excellent condit- ion and with the minimum amount of labour. August fairs in Brecon and Radnor are: 7th, Rhaya- der; 10th, Hay, Knighton and Talgarth; 26th, Presteign; 28th, Cefn-Coed, Rhayader and Builth Wells; 31st, Knighton and Hay. Prices obtained at Presteign produce market, on Wed- nesday, were:-Eggs, 8 for 1/ butter, 1/4 per lb.; fowls, 5/6 to 6/6 per couple; trussed ditto, 1/- and 1/1 per lb.; and rabbits, lid each. Prices at Erwood market, on Thursday, were as fol- low:—Eggs, 7 and 8 for 1/ butter, 1/2 and 1/3 per lb.; chickens, 1/3; fowls, 1/ ducks, 1/2; rabbits, 9d each; gooseberries, Id per lb.; currants, 4d; and whin- berries, 9d per quart. Prevailing rates, for an average supply at Hay market, on Thursday, ranged :-Eggs, 9 for 1/ butter, 1/3 per lb.; fowls, 7/6 to 8/- per couple; ducks, 9/- to 10/ trussed fowls, 1/1 per lb.; and gooseberries, 2d per quart. Newbridge-on-Wye fair, on Thursday, was character- ised by a somewhat small supply. Stock was scarce, and the few animals on otter were disposed of at prices similar to those obtained at Builth market the previous Monday. Mr B. P. Lewis obtained the sanction of the Rad- norshire County Council, on Friday, to add four honor- ary sheep-dipping inspectors (for the parish of Cwm- dauddwr) to the list of seven previously approved to act in the county. At Llanwrtvd auction mart, on Wednesday, there was a good show of fat lambs. There was brisk demand, and wry high prices w'ere realised. Cows with calves were also in keen demand. Fat lambs made 27/- to 45/ according to quality, and cows with calves, zC19 to £22. There was a small attendance at Rhayader market on Wednesday. The supply was also below the aver- age and an early clearance was effected. Prices were:— Eggs, 7 and 8 for 1/ batter, 1/2 and 1/3 per lb.; fowls, 6/- per couple; trussed ditto, 1/- and 1/1 per lb.; and rabbits, lid and 1/- each. Quotations, for a large supply at Knighton produce market, on Thursday, remained similar to those obtain- ed last week. Prices were:— Eggs, 8 for 1/ butter, 1/3 per lb.; fowls, 4/6 to 5/- per couple; trussed ditto, 1/- per lb.; chickens, 5/- to 6/- per couple; rabbits, lOd to 1/- each; ducks, 5/- to 7/- per couple; whin- berries, 5d per lb.; black-currants, 3,ld.; and red-cur- rants, I'd. "In the production of pork and bacon," says a Wve Valley reader, "a carefully-selected cross-bred sow mated with a pure-bred hoar will often give better results than a pure-bred sow, but, in view of the necessity for main- taining a suitable type of pig for commercial purposes at home and for supplying the probable future demands for export purposes, the breeding of perigree pigs should repay the closest attention" on the part of those who are able to undertake it." Systems of management of sows vary with the dis- tricts of Brecon and Radnor. In many, if not in most, instances, the sow may he kept at little expense dur- ing the first three months of pregnancy, as a run on grass during the spring and summer will usually be sufficient. If pasture is scarce, some soaked maize, or peas or beans when prices admit of it, or roots of almost any kind given raw—potatoes only being steam- ed or boiled—will suflice. Even the kitchen refuse from fair-sized houses will go far towards the keeping of the brood sow. During the later stage of pregnancy the diet must he more nourishing, since the drain on a sow J in the production of a good litter is very considerable. A Radnor farmer states:—"Of all farm animals the pig is the mest prolific. No other animal will give a quicker return in meat for foods consumed, or is better adapted for turning into wholesome meat material that might otherwise be wasted. Under a well-planned svstem of management, most of the work connected with pig-keeping can be undertaken efficiently by old or disabled men, hv intelligent lads, or by women. Whe- ther the aim should be breeding or feeding, or both to- gether, will depend largely on local circumstances, but it is generally more profitable to combine feeding with breeding." "There exists," says a Builth farmer, "considerable difference of opinion as to the type of pig most gener- ally profitable. The first point to be considered is the market which the pig breeder proposes to supply. In some districts near London and some other large towns the chief, demand is for pigs weighing about 60 lb. dead >v vrht. cr some 85 to 90 lb. alive. To meet this de- mand, the 'Middle White Yorkshire' sow is much kept, and crossed either with a hoar of the same breed or a Berkshire. Some breeders prefer to cross the other way. but the pigs from a 'Middle White' sow are gen- ratly more numerous and grow faster when young. Another suitable type is obtained by mating a large. black sow with a 'Middle White' boar." "After farrowing," observes a Knighton breeder, "the sow should be given a small quantity of warm, sloppy food, consisting of sharps with a little oatmeal and skim milk, or buttermilk, if available. The food should be gradually increased in quantity, till from 9 to 12 lb. of meal are given daily. This should usually consist of 1 part bran. 2 parts sharps and 2 parts middlings, and should be fed in a somewhat sloppy condition. A large deep-milking sow requires to be liberally fed on nour- ishing diet. Cooked potatoes or other succulent vege- tables such as turnips or mangolds should be added to the above ration with advantage. Heating and fatten- ing foods such as maize and barley and all refuse mater- ial which is not perfectly fresh and wholesome should be avoided. Sudden changes of food should be guard- ed against as being liable to cause scour in the litter." Speaking to a Sennybridge man, some time ago, on the question of pig-rearing, he considered young pigs required clean, comfortable and sanitary surroundings. They begin to eat at three to four weeks old and should then be supplied, three times daily, with a small quan- tity of suitable food. This should consist of skim milk or fresh butter-milk, when available, mixed with some boiled potatoes, middlings, sharps or bran. Where no milk was available a little sharps middlings or oatmeal and linseed meal (scalded) should be fed along with water. The young pigs should be fed from a special trough out of reach of the sow, and the trough should be thoroughly scalded at short intervals. Food which is too thick is frequently associated with (dietetic) con- vulsions, and this trouble is a source of much loss am- ong young pigs. When the pigs are old enough they should he allowed to take exercise freely. Warmth, fresh air and sunshine—provided it is not too strong- encourage healthy, vigorous types. "If," observes a Breconshire reader, "a good breed of pigs is desired, it is essential to use a pure-bred boar. To whatever breed he may belong, he should be selected from a litter conspicuous for its uniformity, and, in common with his parents, he should possess those qualities which the breeder is desirous of repro- ducing. He should be of good quality, fine in bone and hair, lengthy and deep in.the back and hind quarters. ^ith comparatively light fore quarters, and of a quiet IsPosition. The possession of a suffloient number of ^'ell-formed and evenly-placed (vestigial) teats is re- garded by well-known breeders as desirable in a sire. Above all, sound health and great vigour are essential.
Welsh Memorial. I
Welsh Memorial. I IMPORTANT PROPOSALS FOR RE-CONSTRUCTION. Papers were circulated to the members of the court of governors of the Welsh National Memorial Associ- ation in view of their annual meeting at Llandrindod on Saturday. From these it is evident that there is in contemplation an important scheme of re-organisation. According to the present charter and statutes, the sec- retary (Mr Gwilym Hughes) is the "chief administrative officer of the association." One of the items on the agenda of Saturday's meeting was the consideration of a proposed supplemental charter, having as its primary object, the deletion from the statutes of the article which gives the secretary the predominant position in the administrative work of the association. It seems clear that the object of the proposed de- letion of the article relating to the secretary is to give the general director his proper status in the organisa- tion and administration of the association, so as to facilitate any further re-organisation which four years' experience may have shown to be necessary in the ad- ministrative and medical departments of the associ- ation. It has been remarked by members of the medical pro- fession closely attached to the association that up to the present the tuberculosis campaign has been retard- ed by an excessive amount of lay control. This may be accounted for by the fact that the difficulties experien- ced with the contributory local public authorities have been more or less of a lay character and have hindered the medical aspect of the campaign. As is well known, the medical director (Dr. Marcus Paterson) has for a time been stationed at Alltymynydd Sanatorium at Llanyhyther, and it is maintained that at such a re- mote and inconvenient distance the exercise of effective medical control is rendered difficult, if not impossible. What the re-construction proposals provide to meet this point remains to be seen. In the proposed supplemental charter sufficiently wide and elastic powers are sought for the council of the association "to appoint and, at their discretion, to re- move or suspend such administrative, executive, medi- cal, and other officers and clerks and servants as the council may from time to time think fit. and from time to time to determine the powers and duties and to fix and alter the salary or remuneration of any such per- son. It is felt in some quarters that such drastip powers of suspension and dismissal are not compatible with the limited powers granted by law to public, health, police, and other authorities, whose proceedings are conducted publicly, but who are subject in such mat- ters to the consent or veto of the central Government departments.

Heavy Thunderstorm. I TREMENDOUS 4 DOWNPOUR ON BRECON I BEACONS. A heavy thunderstorm. accompanied by vivid lightning and torrential rain, broke over the Vstradfelite and Cray Waterworks on Wednesday afternoon. The River Neath in its upper reach overflowed its banks, the water suddenly rising in some places by five feet. A number of lads who were bathing near Resolven were warned of the coming "fresh," and only just managed to escape from the river.
Radnorshire Education ￼ i
Radnorshire Education EXEMPTION OF CHILDREN FOR WORK ON FARMS. At the Radnorshire Education Committee at* Llan- drindod on Friday there were present Aid. C. C. Rogers (chairman), Mr J. R. Bache (vice-chairman), Mrs C. C. Rogers, Mrs W. Green-Prictj, Mrs R. Morgan, Rev. J. Roland Pryce, Messrs. D. Jones, J. O. Jenkins, and H. D. Phillips, Councillors Rev. H. L. Kewley, S. B. Meredith, T. L. Vaughan, H. Duff Gordon, H. Evan- Thomas, W. Roberts, W. M. Baylis, J. Hurst, J. 0. But- ton, J. Hamer, T. Davies, E. Williams, B. P. Lewis, E. Lewis (Major) J. M. Gibson-Watt, W. Green-Price, R. Hughes, and W. V. Weale, with the clerk (Mr H. Vaughan-Vaughan), and the surveyor (Mr W. Alec Millward). The main business was the passing of the reports, which have already appeared in our columns, and several matters which are reported under separate headings. A letter was read from the Board of Education call- ing attention to the fact-that an uncertificated teacher was now in charge of Ffynon-gynydd School, the master being away on military service. The Board had not been informed of this or consulted in the matter, and they only discovered this by the visit of one of their inspectors. Attention was called to the regulations in the matter, and the committee was asked to state what steps had been taken to secure the services of a qualified head teacher. Mr Baylis said the managers had made the best ar- rangement that seemed possible to them, and Mrs Lup- ton, the teacher in question, was engaged in teaching before her marriage, and since both at Llanbister, and at her present school. The matter was referred to the Salaries Committee. Mrs C. C. Rogers called attention to the proposals of the Central Welsh Board for the re-construction of edu- cation in Wales, and asked when the matter was going to be considered. The chairman said they could not go into that matter that day. Mr H. D. Phillips pointed out that a circular before them that day dealt with this matter, and that the report was before them as all members had been pro- I vided with copies. It was a valuable and important report, and was the result of exhaustive inquiry and I study by experts in education. It had been adopted by the Central Welsh Board by a unanimous vote as the basis for the drafting of a reconstruction scheme, and it had been referred to the Education Authorities. Universities, and he thought the Welsh Members for their observations and considered judgment. These replies had to be in by the autumn, and they ought to be prepared to give some considered judgment on the question at their October meeting. The chairman said he would agree to any suggestion that Mrs Rogers and Mr Phillips put forward, and they then proposed that the matter should be considered by a special committee to consist of the chairman, vice- chairman, the chairmen of committees, and Mr H. D. Phillips. This was agreed to. Speaking to the Agricultural Instruction Committee's report, Mr J. Hamer said there had been a good desl of misunderstanding in the county about the securing of soldiers to assist in the hay harvest. People did not know where to send their applications to. For Pa?t- ), norshire, these applications should be sent to the Lab- our Exchange, Newtown, and they would then be for- warded to the different depots. So far as possible, help ¡ would be sent. Railway fares would be paid to the nearest station, but the farmer must arrange for cOll-1 vevance from the itilway station to the farm. No farmer was compelled to keep a man if he did not suit. He feared it was rather late now for making these facts known, bnt the grain harvest was before them, and men would be wanted then. Speaking to the report of the Buildings Committee. Mr W. Green-Price extended a welcome to Major Gib- son-Watt. who was present on leave, and he added that so far as the committee knew, the work of the surveyor was being satisfactorily done by Mr Millward. the deputy appointed by Mr Wellings Thomas, but if there were matters anywhere which needed attention. managers of schools should make them known. Orders were given for some repairs to be carried out at Norton school. Mr W. Green-Price stated that the General Purposes Committee had considered suggestions made by Mont- gomery for the closing of Dernol School, but they felt that the closing should only be temporary. There seemed something wrong somewhere as this was a com- paratively new school, which cost £ 750 to build. At present, there were scarcely any children near the school, but the time would probably come when there would be young people there again, and the school, should then be re-opened. Mr B. P. Lewis agreed. Three-fourths of the cost l of the school was paid by the parishes which it served. It was in a beautiful situation, and convenient for the three parishes of St. Harmon, Cwmdauddwr (Rad- norshire), and Liangurig (Montgomery). Montgomery was keen for the school when it was built, and although at the moment there were not many children to go. in ihe opinion of the managers there would he sufficient scholars for the re-opening of the school in course of time. He hoped the school would only be closed tem- porarily.-Tlii., was agreed to.—Major Gihson-Watt pointed out that it would be important to keep the school in proper repair, and Mr Green-Price said this would be attended to by Montgomery. Mr J. O. Bufton called attention to the very large number of exemptions which had been granted by the Attendance Committee. These certificates had been given so freely that parents were taking their children out of school without waiting for the committee's con- sent. Things seemed to be taken for granted. This sort of thing was resulting in the loss of grant. £ 500 less was expected in grants this year than two years ago, and R300 less than last year. That was an aver- age of £ 400 per year. He thought more care should be taken in giving these certificates, but he did not wish to see help with-held from farmers where there was real difficulty. Mr T. Davies said it was in no way the fault of the committee that parents were taking their children out of school without permission, and they intended to deal firmly in cases where this was done. They must, how- ever, take into consideration the scarcity of labour, and that many of these applications came from boys who were close on 14 years of age. The committee con- sidered that such boys would be of great service in the harvest fields just now. (Hear, hear). The chair- man of the committee (Dr. Harding) was always most careful in this matter, and had often pointed out that they were losing grants by these exemptions. They had not granted certificates only in cases where they were satisfied that the applications were justified. Mrs Rogers said that in several instances farmers had employed boys and girls without the consent of the committee, and the committee were determined that this should not be done. Exemptions must not be taken in a hole and corner way, but a case must he made out to the satisfaction of a committee before a child was taken. Mr J. Hamer said the attendances in two of the dis- triet., were better this year than last year. That was satisfactory. He did not advocate that girls should be taken out too young, but it was important that country girls should learn to milk when they were young, and in his view that and house work was real education. (Hear, hear).
Permitted Drunkenness I I DURING PROHIBITED HOURS. I I RHAYADER LICENSEE FINED. I At Rhayader police court, on Wednesday, before Rev. W. E. Prickard (chairman) and Mr Evan Morgan, Mere- dith Powell, Cwmdauddwr Arms, Rhayader, was charg- ed with permitting drunkenness on his premises (and during hours which the sale of intoxicating liquor is prohibited) on the 20th inst. Defendant pleaded "not guilty." P.s. C. Rogers explained that, on the date mentioned, he was near the Police Station and saw a man, named Edward Rowlands, coming out of the public. He went staggering across the highway into the Lion Yard just opposite. Witness noticed he was drunk. He went to the yard after him and saw him trying to put a collar on a horse. Rowlands was then advised to go and lie down and sleep it off. He did not take the advice. The officer told him he was too drunk to take charge of horses which were going to be harnessed to a mach- ine. and he stopped him. He then sent for Mr Lewis (Lion Hotel). Eventually, he arrived, and the sergeant I drew his attention to Rowlands's condition. He also I told Rowlands he was not fit to go with the horses. Sergt. Rogers saw Rowlands about 2.30 and was near the Police Station from just then till 4 o'clock. When he first saw him he was not so drunk as on the latter occasion. He did not see him go into Cwmdauddwr Arms, but, he explained, he must have been there for about an hour or so. Mr F. T. Wilkins (Llandrindod Wells), who was near the yard at the time, said he saw Rowlands about 2.30. He asked him to call him at 4 o'clock, as he (Rowlands) was going to have a lie down. He spoke to him later, and went to look at the clock just outside. The time was 3.30 and witness told Rowlands. A short time af- ter he saw him come out of Cwmdauddwr Arms. The time then was about 4. Rowlands was under the in- fluence of drink, and, later, the sergeant asked him to go and fetch Mr Lewis. He went, and Mr Lewis came down to the yard. Mr Lewis stated that he received the message from Mr Wilkins, and found Rowlands in a drunken condit- ion. He would not allow him to be in charge of his horses. Mr M. Powell said he was away from the house that day, and, consequently, his wife and daughter, aged 18, were in charge. He, therefore, knew nothing of this case. Mrs Powell (wife of the proprietor) said Rowlands I came to the house about five past three and asked for a chain which was in their yard. She told him her husband was not in, but went to look for it. While she was absent, her daughter began talking to Row- lands and to-(I him not to spit on the floor. He had some lemonade and water and observed it "did not go down very Veil." She was only away some 7 or 8 minutes. Miss Florence Powell, the daughter, explained that Rowlands came in and asked for a chain. Her mother went to fetch it, and, in the meantime. Rowlands asked for a drink. She told him there was some water on the table, and he also had some lemonade. He was not in the house more than 8 or 10 minutes. A fine of 30/ inclusive, was imposed. i.

Rhayader Tribunal. I LITTLE INTEREST IN PROCEEDINGS. I At Rhayader Tribunal, on Saturday, there were pre- sent Messrs. B. P. Lewis, J.P., C.C. (chairman), Mr E. Morgan, J.P. (military representative), Mr D. Davies, J.P., Mr J. Evans, Mr E. D. Thomas, Mr G. X. Rees, Mr R. Worthing. Mr E. Price, Mr E. Davies, Cefnfaes (representative of agriculture), and Mr E. D. Prothero (clerk).. Little interest was taken in the proceedings, no one being present from the town except those con- cerned. In all. 34 cases were considered. Very few were disallowed. The majority were temporary exemp- tion, some conditional, the conditions being that the men would be willing to assist farmers, and, in the event of them refusing, the exemption would be with- drawn. The chairman, at the cutset, stated that. Mr V. Vaughan had tcld him that he had just received a communication from the War Office that all connected with agriculture were to have at least 14 days, and asked if that rule were to be observed by them that day? It was resolved to decide each case upon its own merits. Mr E. Morgan protested against a certain re- lhark "made by Mr E. Davies, Cefnfaes, viz., that he. like others, would receive payment at the close of those meetings if he did not then. Mr Morgan said emphatically that he wished Mr Davies and all others to know that, whatever others were receiving, he was not receiving a penny.

[ Teachers on Military Service.!…
[ Teachers on Military Service. Teachers on Military Service. i? RADNORSHIRE PROPOSAL TO DISCONTINUE PAYMENTS TO Mf N WHO JOINED LATE. At Radnorshire Education Committee, on Friday, in I accordance with notice of motion, Mrs Rogers moved "That teachers joining the Army under the Derby Scheme and later should not receive payment from the county whilst serving with the colours." Mrs Rogers said her object in moving this was to secure some pre-I ference for the teachers who joined the Army eariy as compared with those who joined late. Those who join- ed early had shown themselves to be fervent patriots. and she did not think the teachers who had recently joined should have the same consideration as 'those who joined two years ago. Mr D. Jones said the committee had previously re- solved that the difference between Army pay and what a teacher would receive had to be continued in his school should he made up by the county, and he sub- mitted that that resolution held the field till it was rescinded. He had a return of 176 authorities who were paying their teachers who had enlisted their former salaries, less Army pay, and in the list were most of the authorities of South Wales, and the bordering coun- ties of Breconshire, Shropshire, and Herefordshire. The resolution, if carried, would affect two teachers. The sum 0f tl25 per annum would be the total payment to these teachers under the present conditions. Before joining, these teachers asked what the conditions were, and they were informed of the minute upon the book, which he had quoted. It would be a little bit unfair to tell these teachers now, after they had joined, that they would not be paid anything by this authroity. They attested voluntarily under the Derby Scheme, and they were on much the same footing as those men who went before. ("No.") Well, that was his view. These teachers might have appealed successfully, and then they would have been earning their salaries in their schools. To with-hold payment of their loss of income from these teachers would he considered be a breach of faith, and he was sure none of them would like to be said to be guilt.), of that. Having laid these conditions down they should as an authority adhere to them, but if they wished to make fresh arrangements for those who joined in the future that was another matter. If, however, this resolution were carried, it was bound to shake the confidence of the teachers.. Mr W. M. Baylis said he attested both these men last November, and they were both under, the impression that if they joined the Army their salaries would be paid less Army pay. He agreed that it would be a breach of faith on their part to turn round now and say that they would not pay this difference. These men did not appeal, but responded as soon as their groups were called up. It Mr J. O. Bufton said these two cases called for spec- ial consideration, especially as information was sought and obtained by them before they joined the colours. He was sure. that Mrs Rogers did not desire to inflict ony hardship upon these teachers or upon any others. He shared the view that she had expressed that the position had latterly been entirety changed, and that those who had enlisted under the Derby Scheme and the Military Service Acts ought not to be treated in the same way as those who enlisted voluntarily. There was now a Government scheme for assisting men who suffered proved hardship on joining the colours, and he thought they should take steps to secure some assist- ance from the Commissioner. If they could it would be some little relief for the ratepayers. The clerk said the Commissioner was very near at that office, and it would be well to apply, as had been suggested. The chairman supported the motion, emphasing that those who joined early were more entitled to consider- ation than those who had joined under compulsion. Mr H. Evan Thoma,r said that every member of that committee would be anxious to he exonerated from any charge of breach of faith, and he quite saw that they would be liable to that charge, as had been pointed out. He suggested that Mrs Rogers should add to the reso- lution after the first word, "that," the words, "in future." That would make the position clear for the future, and would prevent it being applied to the men who had gone. Mrs Rogers said she would accept this suggestion, and said she would be very sorry for it to be thought that any motion of hers suggested a breach or faith. This motion was simply the corrolary of the one which was passed on May 11th. Mr D. Jones queried if .this resolution, if carried, would over-ride the resolution of May 11th, which pro- vided that teachers who joined under the Compulsion Bill should be dealt with separately from those who joined previously. The chairman ruled that this would be the effect of it, and the resolution, as amended, was then agreed to.
Mrs Glen . Kidson
Mrs Glen Kidson WEDDED TO LIEUT.-COMMANDER W. G. WINDHAM. As briefly recorded tn last issue, Lieut.-Commander W. G. Windham, retired King's messenger, was at the Chapel Royal, Savoy, on Wednesday, married to Mrs Glen Kidston, widow of the late Captain Glen Kidston, of Gwernyfed Park, Breconshire, and daughter of Mr Spencer Chapman, of 84, Eccleston Square, S.W. The marriage ceremony was performed by the Rev. Hugh Chapman, cousin of the bride and chaplain of the Savoy Chapel. Mr Ottoway Graham Toler, of Durrow Castle, Ireland, acting as best man. There were no brides- maids. The bride, who was given away by her brother (Mr Fitzroy Chapman), wore a dress of. pale grey satin charmeuse, with large grey picture hat. She also wore a string of pearls and a diamond heart locket. She carried a bouquet of orchids, and was met at the en- trance of the church by the choir of the Chapel Royal, which sang, "Lead us, Heavenly Father." The hymn after the marriage ceremony was "Eternal Father strong to save," the sailor's hymn being chosen cut of compliment to the bridegroom, who was married in naval uniform. The organist played the "Bridal March" from "Lohengrin" at the commencement of the service, and at the close Mendelssohn's "Wedding March." The going-away dress was of pastel blue, with geor- gette crepe and small toque.

After weaning, a boar may be allowed to run with other pigs until about five months old, at which age female pigs, at least, should be removed from his company.

"Relative to bacon pigs," observed a Crickhowell breeder, "one of the first difficulties encountered in establishing new bacon factories is to obtain locally pigs which produce bacon suited to the public taste. The pig required for a Wiltshire side should have a small shoulder (as that is the coarsest part and in re- tailing realises the least money), a good deep middle, with a fine loin and a large ham. and not too great a thickness of fat on the hack. Top prices .aiv usually paid for pigs weighing from 120 to 190 Ih. dead weight. A larger and fatter pig weighing 220 to 300 lh. is in demand in some parts of Yorkshire, Lancashire and other counties.
