BALANCED CORN RATION FOR
A plantation dairy has recently
asked for Information on balancing
the feed for dairy cows in Hawaii,
naming as the concentrates available
those listed below. With plenty of
pasture, we refcommend the follow
2 pounds soy bean meal (fat ex
5 pounds rice bran.
4 pounds wheat middlings.
7 pounds barley.
Feed about one pound of the above
mixture for every three pounds of
milk that the cow produces.
Rice bran is rather indefinite In
composition, being highly nutriti
ous when it does not contain any
of the hulls, and becoming distaste
ful to animals when the oil or fat
in it gets rancid. Some dairy experi
ments indicate that feeding of rice
bran in large amounts may Injure
the quality of the milk, and for that
reason we are using wheat bran
on the university farm instead of
The grain ration used In the uni
versity dairy herd consists of:
100 pounds corn and cob menl
100 ponds wheat bran.
50 pounds cocoanut meal,
10 pounds linseed oil cake meal.
We use green alfalfa as roughage
with this ration. The mixture given
above is balanced provided the pas
ture Is mostly Bermuda grass (ma
nienie) or a mixture of grasses hav
ing about the same composition. L.
THE U. S. EXPERIMENT 8TATION
J. M. Westgate, director, states
that the U. S. experiment station in
Honolulu will be glad to send you
free any of the following seeds or
cuttings, if you will address a re
quest to him:
Grains: sweet corn, guam corn,
sorghum and Egyptian corn.
Beans: Kentucky Wonder, Lima
Cuttings: Sweet potato, Merker
grass and Napier (elephant- grass.
For green manuring: Cowpeas,
Sunn hemp. Jack bean, velvet bean.
Honey plant: Hubam clover (seed)
About 3,600 cuttings of Napier
(elephant) and Merker grasses are
required to plant one acre of ground
and about 5 450 cassava cutting for
the same area These may be obtain
ed in larger quantities if desired.
Packages undier 4 pounds are sent
postage free, but larger lots are sent
charges collect. Here Is a spkmdid
service you surely ought to take
advantage of. Write to Mr. West-
gate about It.
You multiply bees by division! How
is that? This is how you do it, and
hero are some of the figures of
how it was actually done on Ha
waii. Several years ago E. C. Smith,
who is giving a Bhort course tn bee
keeping at the university, wanted
to get 400 swarms of bees but had
only twenty on hand. By dividing
each of the twenty swarms into sev
eral smaller colonies and providing
a good queen for each, every one
of the new swarms quickly grew In
size and after two or three weeks
each could be divided again. That
is how the division multiplies. And,
look how fast it multiplies.. Starting
with twenty swarms Mr. Smith had
in just eight months time 420 swarms
of been! Ho figured that at this
rate one swarm could be multiplied
in one year to 230 good Bwarms and
in two years to over 50,000 swarms
If the right attention could be giv
en to the work.
ON PLANTING BANANAS
We would advise you to get your
ground in the best physical condi
tion (tilth), turning under and thor
oughly incorporating with the soil
all the weeds and grass growing
there. If irriution is possible and
season of the year Is good for plant
ing, but otherwise planting should
be done in the eurly spring months.
Plants should be spaced about 7
by 7 feet if the Chinese variety is
bell g used, or 8 by 8 feet for the
Bluefield or Jamaica. This will give
you 875 of the former per acre and
C75 of the latter. The prevailing
price on Oahu for banana suckers
seems to be about 20 to 25 cent3
each, but on Kauai sales at 10 cents
are common. Propogating by suck
er.s, wo neel not worry about sexes
to fertilize the flowers as we do in
certain other fruits like papaya for
If the ground is not very fertile
and suems to lack organic rnatti r
we advise digging holes about two
feet in diameter and two feet deep,
and incorporating about 20 pounds
of well rotted manure with the bot
tom soil before setting the plai ts.
Later, if the plants need stimulation
all one pound per plant of a high
grade commercial fertilizer contain
ing 8 per cent nitrogen, and 8 per
cent potash. This can be worked in
around the surface and irrigation
water will carry it dpwn to the feed
ing roots. Firm the enrth well
around the roots at the time the
plants are .set and irrigate immed
iately after setting especially if
the ground Is dry.
BEAUTIFY YOUR HOME GROUNDS
The Board of Agriculture and
Forestry maintains tree nurseries
on each Island for the purpose of
furnishing shade, ornamental or for
est trees to any person who may
want same. These trees are furnish
ed at very small cost:
Plants in seed boxes at $1 per
Transplants in pots ut 2 cents
""Transplants in boxes at $1 each.
The head nursery Is in Honolulu,

GREEN BONE, MEAT MEAL, FOR
Green bone meal and lean meat
meal, andi similar poultry fouls are
very valuable in balancing the ra
tion and increasing egg production.
Two Important precautions, however,
must be observed: (1) be surei that
the material is not spoiled, and (2)
do rot feed too much. Careful experi
ments have shown that meat meals
should not exceed ten per cent of
the total grain ration (whole grains
and mashes). The average amount
per hen, therefore, would be about
410 ounce of bone or meat meal
per day, as the average hen will
consume about 4 ounces of grain
and similar foods in a day.
To prevent the fowls from over
gormandizing this rich food, it would
be well to mix it with coarse dry
bran to form a dry granular con
sistency. Access to granulated, char
coal grit and roughage in the form
of straight wheat bran from a self
feeder will do much to safeguard
against accesslve feeding of these
most essential constituents of a
truly balanced ration. F. G. Krauss.
QUALIFICATIONS FOR SUCCESS
FUL BUD SELECTION
Bud selection is new work, pio
neer effort and calls for somewhat
urutrual qualifications under three
general heads, (1) capacity for sus
tained effort, (2) intimate knowledge
of the plant you are working with
and (3) ability to observe and wraw
correct conclusions or judge as to
individual plant and progeny behav
ior. The capacity for sustained effort
means hard and, concentruted work
without any let up. Discouraging ac
cidents, puzzling plant behavior,
skeptical onlookers and critics, and
many other difficulties will ilimin
ate all who understake this work
except those who havo the capacity
for sustained effort. By the term
"intimate knowledge" is meant that
knowledge that comes from close
association with and love for the
plant with which one works. One
may not have this In the beginning,
but it should develop as the work
progresses or it is doomed to fail
ure. The ability to observe and to
deduce correctly from one's obser
vations varies with individuals, but
It can be cultivated. Preconceived
notions und, prejudice must be elim
inated so far us possible. The plants
must bo Judged on their own merits
The above statements are directed
towards those who do the actual
bud selection work. Those who own
or operate our plantations should
firmly believe that this work will be
of greater value than it coHt, or else
no attempt should be made to un
dertake it. We would recommend
(1) that someone having the es
sential qualifications for this work
or able to develop them to be put
in charge of it; (2) that the person
In charge of this work be encourag
ed by helpful suggestions, und by
active personal assistance when pos
sible or needed, and be given bis
entire time for it; (3) that the co
operation of all the plantation or
ganization be used In this work;
(4) the allowance of plenty of time
to develop fully the possibilities of
this work without interruption, so
fur as this is possible.
When superior progenies are found
they should be multiplied as rapidly
as possible for plantation use. It
may be possible thru now methods
of propagation, to multiply the val-
