tost of Mule Feeding
Reduced Over Half
nlerestiiig and Important Results Ob
tained by I'rof. Krauss Through
Editor "Maul News"
In a recent issue of tho Maul News
under the caption "Will study tho cost
of mule feed", are given some inter
esting figures relative to the cost of
feeding mules on Molokal and Maul.
In one caso it cost at the rate of
$11.80 per head per month to feed six
head, and In the other it cost $26.00
per head per month to feed three
head, or more than double the cost to
feed those In one lot than In the
Your article does not state whether
these costs represent cost of feed
alone, or whether cost of attendance
Is also Included. Nor does it state
whether both lots of mules were do
ing like service, or whether they were
of about equal slzo and age. Of course
each of these Items arc inlleunclng
factors in the amount of feed con
sumed, and are independent of tho
intllal cost of tho feed. Tho most In
fluencing factor in tho wide difference
In costs, is however, probably to bo
found In the kinds and costs of the
Under local conditions, work mules
weighing 1100 to 1200 pounds, when in
active service, will consume approxi
mately 1C pounds of whea't hay and
1G pounds barley per day At prices
ruling in Honolulu In January, I.e.
$25.00 per ton for wheat hay and
$3S.OO for rolled barley, plus $5.80 per
ton for freight from Honolulu, brings
the cost of feeding at Haiku as fol
lGlb wheat hay $30.80 pet-
161b lolled barley $43.80
per ton 3504
Total cost of feed per day.$ .G0G8
This is equivalent to $18.50 per
month of 31 days.
Contractors generally roughly esti
mate the cost of feeding nnd caring
for heavy work mules at approximate
ly $1.00 per day. Thus it will be seen
that the higher figure quoted in your
article approximates a cost about
midway between tho theoretical cost
of the feed alone and that estimated
by extensive feeders for care and
feed. It would be Interesting to know
under just what conditions tho two
lots of mules were fed. The cost of
$11.80 per head per month as credited
to Molokal would certainly be a low
cost of feeding for good sized mules
In active work, and it is hoped that
the methods pursued may be made
available to horse and mule owners
in the Territory generally.
The writer has been feeding four to
six head of work horses and mulcts,
weighing 1150 to 1350 pounds each, at
his homestead near Haiku since July,
1912. During the first year and a
half all feed was bought. The average
cost per head for feed alone was
$24.50 per month, while the animals
were at heavy hauling and plowing.
During the past year the cost for feed
has been reduced to just one-half of
tho cost during the first year and a
half. The work stock Is thriving fully
as well now as then, If not better.
The coat of feeds Is fully as high now,
if not higher, than during the earlier
In the hope that our present meth
ods of feeding might prove suggestive
to others, wo give below the feeding
formula as fed at the present time,
together with the former ration with
cost at present prices for comparison.

51b Alfalfa Meal $30.00 0750
5 lb Rolled Barley $40.00 1000
lib Molasses $15.00 0075
This 13 equivalent to $11.G4 per
month or practically tho same as the
costs of feeding accredited to Molo
kal in your recent article. Tho above
ration can be modified unllmitedly de
pending upon the feeds available and
their relative costs. Whec norn is
plentiful wo grind it into a meal in
eluding tho cobs, as a substitute for
the barley and at a considerable sav
ing; when cull beans, or cow peas and
bean straw are available we grind
theso and substitute for tho alfalfa
meal at a further reduction of cost
The substitution of what middlings
when not too high In price, for part
of tho abovo ration may considerably
improve the feeding valuo of tho mix
The objectlonal dustiness which
characterizes tho ration in the dry
state, is overcomo by diluting the
molasses with six times its volume of
water and moisting each of tho three
dally feeds with a quart of tho diluted
molasses. This is tho way in which
tho pound of molasses is incorporated
with the feed, and greatly to the ad
vantage of tho two.
A total of two or even three pounds
of molasses might bo substituted for
an equal amount of tho grain where
the molasses is readily available Re
cently wo have been feeding honey at
$30.00 a ton as a substitute for the
molasses with excellent results. The
Jioney at lo per pound, is consider
ably cheaper than barley at 2 cents,
up to, say 2Va pounds in a dally ra
As tho barley (or corn), algaroba
meal and grasses are rich in tho car
bohydrates, it is important that tho
ration be balanced with a highly nl
trogenous (protein) feed, surh as al
falfa meal, or as if often done by us
tho addition of somo farm grown le
gume, such as cow pea, pigeon pea, or
velvet bean meal. After feeding al

Attempt to Wreck Papalkou Mill.
That the Papalkou BUgar mill was

things that, fortunately, did not hap
pen on Friday last, when somo das
tnrdly individual sent three sticks of
giant powder, capped and fused, down

vigilance of tho man who Is stationed
at. tlio cano carrier prevented the

from being run through tho rollers.
What would havo happened had the
three sltcks of giant powder reached
the rollers would have, more or less,
