Excerpt from The U. T. Farmer, Vol. 8: October, 1913
These figures show that the Berk shire not only -excels in the total yield of milk, but also in the butter fat content. This is very favorable to the raising of large litters. As a result fewer runts are formed and a more r... apid growth is maintained, giving the pig the best possible start before being put on dry food. This fact is very significant, since the farmer's profit depends largely upon the size of the litter, the number of runts formed, and the rapidity with which the pigs grow. Incidentally, this table also shows that the Berkshire excels in the size of litter produced.
