From Aunt Millie’s Cookbook

When I say Aunt Millies Cookbook, not only am I talking food for the family. I am also talking stuff for the critters. Since they relied on their hogs, their cattle and chickens, they had to take care of them as if they were family. Here is a recipe for a hog cholera cure. NOT for human consumption. Just sayin……….

Hog Cholera Cure

Coppers ½ lb.

Spanish Brown ¼ lb.

Black Antimony ¼ lb.

Carbolic Acid ½ oz.

Oil Rhodium 10 drops

Gum Asafoetide ¼ oz.

Cayenne Pepper 1 oz.

Water 1 gal.

For preventive

1 pt. In 3 gal. of slop. Twice a day for 2 or 3 days a week.

For ill hogs

½ pt. In 1 pt. Of milk for a drench

Chicken Cures

1 Tsp. of salt to 1 gal. of water stops chickens from pecking and eating each other while closed in brooder house.
