Lambs On Early Market Bring Big
Thousands of Kentucky lambs
that are being prepared for the
market at this season of the year
will bring greater returns if given
a little extra feed anl care to put
them in marketable condition at
the earliest possible date, according
to' L. J. Horlacher, hi charge of the
College of Agriculture sheep work.
In addition to bringing a higher
price, the early lamb Is less apt to
be troubled with the parasites and
summer heat' affecting those that
are held for a later market, It was
In 1921, the average price paid
for choice lambs on the Louisville
market was $13.40 a hundred In
May, $12.20 In June and $10.80 in
July, according to figures cited to
show " the greater 'value of lambs
that go to market early.
Parasites which often cause heavy
and disastrous summer losses ' - or
dinarily do 'not give lambs much
trouble until about the middle of
June. Getting the lambs off to an
early market therefore avoids trou
ble from this source, it waa added.
In connection with the effect of
summer heat on spring lambs, fig
ures derived from monthly weights
kept on a flock of registered sheep
under good care Show -that gains
are made more slowly and conse
quently at greater expense after hot
weather comes. The average
monthly gain for each of 91 latribs,
during the seasons of 1917, 1918
and 1920 was K.l pounds in May,
13.3 pounds in June and 4.2 pounds
A mixture of equal parts by
weight of shelled corn, oats and

that are being prepared for the mar
ket. " Each animal should be given
from ' one-eighth to 'one-quarter of
a pound of this mixture each day.
