Princeton Girl, Ella Neumann, to Ex-

Show in South St. Paul.
Fifteen hundred boys and girls on
Minnesota farms have been feeding
baby beef and dairy calves, hogs and
sheep this summer in competition for
junior livestock show honors, accord
ing to W. A. McKerrow, secretary of
the Minnesota Livestock Breeders' as
sociation. The climax of their work
will come on November 17, when judg
ing will begin at the fourth annual
show at South St. Paul. The show
opens on November 16. The best ani
mals raised by the boys and girls of
each county in six to eight months of
careful feeding have been selected
through local competition to enter the
final event of the year at the junior
livestock show, November 18, the last
day of the show, will be devoted to an
auction sale of beef calves, hogs and
sheep. Nearly $9,000 will be spent for
prizes and the expenses of the contes
In 1916 the Minnesota Livestock
Breeders' association decided to devote
the major portion of its income to pro
moting the worx of boys' and girls'
clubs and competitive junior shows.
TheTe were only 35 animals at the
first state show at the 1920 show
there were 120 beef calves alone, while
two boys from each of 15 counties ex
hibited dairy calves, and 40 pigs from
40 counties and 40 lambs from 20 coun
ties were entered. The 1921 show
will be the climax of years of work by
stockmen, club leaders, county agents
and the livestock breeders' association.
Ella Neumann, who v/on first place
in the calf contest at our county fair,
is to exhibit her prize Ayrshire at the
show in South St. Paul.
CALL FOR BUREAU'S AID.
Federal Investigators Ask Federation
to Furnish Price Records for
St. Paul, Oct. 13.Congress has
called on the county farm bureaus of
Minnesota to help in its nationwide
investigation of agricultural condi
tions. Nearly every county farm bu
reau in the state has been asked to
compile a detailed record of the prices
farmers have had to pay for the neces
sities of life for the last seven years.
For comparison, the county bureaus
have been asked to prepare a similar
record of the. prices farmers have re
ceived for their crops each year since
The American Farm Burer.u federa
tion undertook this national price sur
vey at the request of the joint congres
sional investigating commission, made
up of both the members of the house
and senate, appointed to investigate
the cause of the farmers' critical eco
nomic condition and to devise reme
dies. The figures, when compiled and
presented to the congressmen, will
show the results of the most extensive
statistical inquiry ever undertaken by
a farmers' organization, according to
farm bureau officers. The congres
sional commission has asked for rec
ords showing the price actually paid
by farmers for food, clothing, house
furnishings, tools and machinery, fer
tilizers and spraying material, seed,
feed, building material, fuel and light.

Two months ago a similar survey by
the federation showed that farmers
were paying an average of $41 a
month for general farm work, and $45
for harvesting. In at least one-third
of the counties in Minnesota, federa

Minnesota's Famous Butter.
The rich state of Minnesota is
known in many parts of the effete
east as the land that produces the
finest creamery butter that ever
tickled the taste of the New York and
Bostonian epicure. Minnesota's co
operative creamery product commands
a premium price in the New York
For the past two decades Minnesota
butter has been awarded many of the
best prizes for quality. Minnesota
carried off the grand prize for butter
at the Louisiana Purchase exposition.
Two cups awarded by the international
dairy show have found a resting place
in this state, Minnesota buttermakers
have won a dozen annual prize ban
ners offered by the National Creamery
We hope to win honors again in the
coming national dairy show on the
state fair grounds October 8 to 15.
Minnesota as a dairy state is attract
ing more attention each year. Our
cheese is already famous. Our butter
is in the premium class. The reason
for this fortunate situation is first,
the excellent quality of pasturage and
the care taken of the thoroughbred
stock. Secondly, Minnesota farmers
bring the finest quality of raw ma
terial to cheese factories and to the
cheesemakers and co-operative cream

An Egg-Producing Mash.
As a result of eight years* feeding
tests at the United States department
of agriculture poultry yards at Belts
ville, Md., a mash feed has been com
pounded which gives uniform high
egg production. This mash, which has
been tested for three years, is made
of 4 per cent bran, 4 per cent mid
dlings, 26 per cent meat scrap, and 66
per cent corn meal. In the experi
ments the hens were allowed to select
their own mash ingredients. This is
the proportion of those different feeds
which they ate during the year. Sev
eral pens of 30 hens each, both of
Leghorns and Rhode Island Reds, have
averaged from 140 to 155 eggs apiece
while this mash was fed. While the
mash seems to be especially adapted for
Leghorns, it has given very good re
sults with Reds. Wyandottes and
Plymouth Rocks were found to get too
fat on the ration and a mash some
what lower in meat scrap has given
better results with these breeds. Both
the Wyandottes and Plymouth Rocks
at Beltsville are large standard sized
fowls. The tendency to become over
fat on this mash probably would not
be found in a smaller type of Plym
outh Rocks, such as is often found on
commercial poultry farms.

Potato Yield in Beltrami County.
Potato picking in Beltrami county is
progressing rapidly and will be fin
ished in two or three days if weather
conditions permit, according to Coun
ty Agent Dvoracek. An average yield*
of about 200 bushels per acre is ex
pected for the county. Green Moun
tains, Russets and Cobblers are among
the most common varieties raised.
Farmers are unwise if they sell at
this time, Mr. Dvoracek pointed out,
as the price is almost sure to advance
because of the shortage for the coun
try as a whole. The country will be
about 50 or 60 million bushels short of
the normal consumption and this
means that prices are bound to rise,
