The practice of slaughtering hogs on the farm is being followed rather extensively by the farmers of this state. It is an economic practice and should be more generally followed because by this practice a supply of meat is available throughout the year. In all ages meat has been the principal article of diet of the ruling races. It is a natural and necessary part of man's diet. The races of people who have not included meat in their diet are today numbered among the weaker and more backward nations.
