At a meeting of the Maffra Agricultural Society (Victoria) Mr Smith a pig expert of the Department of Agriculture, was warmly denounced lor certain remarks made in a lecture recently given there on the pig industry. He told his audience that skim milk or sugar beet was no better than water as a food .or pigs, also that a sow might be made to breed five litters of pigs in two years. As Mr Archer, another expert.

states in an article in the "Agricultural Journal’’ for May, that 3271bs of skim milk was equal to 100 lbs of maize meal as a food for pigs, a resolution was carried at the meeting to the effect that the Department of Agriculture be asked which statement is to be taken as correct. As to Mr Smith’s statement in regard to breeding five litters i n two years, it w'as considered by the pig raisers present that such would have a serious effect on the constitution of the pigs if the practice was generally adopted.
