The York is the Principal breed seen.
The nos have declined especially since 1928 to 1930. Feeding stuffs up 50 to 100% and pigs 25% or £4 to £5 for a fat pig or 48/s a cut dead weight to 60/s per cur dead weight. Farmers here have almost closed to fatten pigs.

Many farmers can cure their bacon at home. They know the art well, and can cure even in the month of May.


Hens etc

Turkeys geese ducks and hens are plentiful.
The white Wyndotte hen and the Rhodes Island are the favoured breeds.

Are not numerous among the "Goat Suckers" but two swiftter (?) together may be found on many farms.
