Abstract

Now that our nation has allied itself with other peace-loving countries to completely subdue those nations who have by reason of aggression set out to destroy us, we are realizing the paramount importance of producing more food. With the exception of dairy products, there is probably no single food item which is so vastly important in our war effort as pork. Pork not only offers our fighting forces a meat product highly nutritious and rich in vitamins, but by-products from pork are playing a big role in the manufacture of glycerin, fats, soaps, and ammunition. It would be difficult to estimate the true value of our swine industry as it is related to our war effort.
