Usefulness of Score Card


USEFULNESS OF SCORE CARD In select ing either pure bred or a grade boar, this score card, while designed prima rily for a fat barrow, will be found ex ceedingly useful, as the more nearly the score is perfect, according to this scale of points, the more likely will the boar be to get stock of the lard hog type that will meet the market requirements. In boars more masculinity about the bead will be expected and rather heavier bone, particularly of the legs, than for barrows. Strong hones are especially desirable in the legs to carry the hogs when heavily fattened, otherwise they are likely to break down especially in shipping.
