RATIONS TO PRODUCE MILK
Cow Should Be Fed So That featest
Possible Amount of Feed Goes:
to Supply Milk.
(Prepared by the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture.)
Many owners of cows are confront
ed with the problem of supplying eco
nomical milk-producing rations for
their cows. Under these conditions
there i3 a strong temptation to cut
down on the amount given to each
animal. The total quantity of feed
must be sufficient, and if the concen
trates are cut down, more and better
roughage must be supplied.
The reduction of feed below a cer
tain amount alawys means a reduction
in the amount of milk the cow pro
duces. There may be exceptional
cases where the owner is feeding more
than is necessary for the maximum
milk production, but the greatest dan
ger is the other extreme. The cow
requires a certain amount of feed to
maintain her body. The amount she
receives above this maintenance ration
goes eitfier to meat or milk produc
tion. The cow should be fed so that
the greatest possible amount of feed
goes to actual milk production. A
few simple rules are offered to this
1. Highly specialized cows, which
never carry excessive fat and are per
sistent milkers, being dry only a
month or so, should receive all they
will consume. With such cows econ
omy in feeding is equivalent to liberal
2. With general-purpose cows, or
those which tend to beefiness, the
dairyman must adjust his feed strict
ly to the milk produced, or he will
find his feed going to form fat instead
.of milk. Cows of this nature, the
milk from which contains about 5 per

icent of butterfat, should receive what
i.rougbage they will cle?:n up and one
ound of grain for every three to three
?and a half pounds of milk produced. <
'When the milk tests about 3% per
taent, the cow should receive one pound
|of grain for four to four and a hali
?pounds of milk.
3. Dry cows should receive feed
?enough to insure their being in good,

(they freshen. Poor cov/s drop weak,
?puny calves and will not produce prop
ierly, as they have to use a part of the
?feed to build up the body.
! 4. Cows of a beefy nature should
not be fed enough to make them ex
cessively fat when dry, as the dairy
man does not receive returns from
such feed, and excessive fleshiness J
tends to sterility. On the other hand
there is little danger of overfeeding
highly-specialized dairy cows which

ATTENTION TO YOUNG BULLS
When Six Months of Age They Should
Be Separated From Females
Don't Retard Growth.
After the bull Is six months of age
The should be kept apart from the fe
males. If well grown and vigorous, he
may be used for occasional service
when ten months of age. It is a safer
plan, however, not to use the young"
bull until he ls twelve months of age
so that his growth will not be retarded
! One rule to follow regarding the num
'ber of cows with which a young bull
! may be mated is that the bull may
[serve during a season as many cows ag
*he is moaths of age. In herds where
the services are distributed throughout
the year, instead of during a particular
' season, the number may be greater, in
?some cases but one bull being nece?
teary for a herd of 40 to 50 cows.
