11'ter .leu sen, manager of the
Mahelona llospital farm at Ka-
paa, reports that he has been feed
ing rice bran to his dairy stock
for some time now, with very good
results. Since he has been feed
ing rice bran he has been able to
ut his feed bill in hall', and at
the same time increase milk pro
duction. Mr. .leiisen in introduc
ing rice bran into his feed ration
was careful in making the change
gradual in order to accustom the
stock to the new feed. What
Mahelona Hospital needs now is
better stock and a means of mak
ing use of Ihe manure from the
dairy. At present a good deal of
plant food is lost due to the fact
that Mr. .leu sen has no means of
storing manure until a time when
it can be hauled to the Held.

E. II. Broadbent, manager of
drove Farm Plantation, reports
that he is feeding his work stock
with pigeon peas ground into
meal. lie grinds the peas, pods
and all, and uses the meal as one
sixth of the ration, by measure.
Ill the future he intends to save
labor in picking the peas, by
harvesting them on the branch
and grinding the folige and
branch along with the pods and
peas." Th is is a good feeding
practice where it is desired to in
troduce more protein in the ra

and produce good yields. Seed
