DING ANIMAL Mi
Self-Feeder for Dry Feed-Hopper
(By M. BOTER.)
Up to about 1889, winter egg-pro
duction was not much of a feature,
great as the demand was, for the rea
son that there seemed no possible way
of getting the hens down to solid work.
There was an improvement, how
ever, when better houses, better feed
ing and better care were employed;
but still the supply was meager con
sidering the output at the present day.
The matter of food finally became a
serious subject, resulting in the con
clusion that more animal food must
be placed on the bill of fare.
But, how to furnish it economically
did not manifest itself until F. W.
Mann, in 1889, invented and placed on
the market a crude machine, but,
nevertheless, the initiative of the
present high-class green-bone cutters
now so extensively used. This was
the original bone cutter, and it is a
matter of poultry history that the term
bone cutter was -actually coined by
According to analysis by Prot James
L Rice the nutritive value of green
bone is 1:5.3, which is greater than
any other form of meat-meatscrap,
dried blood, dried fish or animal meal.
Hens are worm and insect hunters,
and where they do not have range,
must be supplied a substitute in some
form. Particularly in the summer, the
handiest meat food is meat scrap
meat meal, many brands of which are
mon the market.
Green bone is better for fall, winter
and early spring use. It is safe to
feed in an egg ration one-tenth to one
fifth by weight of meat in the total
- ration, the quantity ~varying with the
richness of the meat and other foods
It is best to mix the meat in the
real feed. But in the case of green
cut- bone it Is more satisfactory to
feed in troughs, allowing a pound of
green bone for every 16 fowls. or.' an
ounce per head. -
The animal foods the fowls gather
while on a free range are usually high
in percentage of nitrogenous matter,
and not a large proportion of fat.
Many of the artificial foods, excepting
such as dried blood and skim milk,
contain usually, besides nitrogenous
utter, a high percentage of fat,
. which is not especially desired in com
pounding a ration.
Foir instance, both earthworms and
,grasshoppers contain nearly ten times
s amuch protein as fat, while ordinary
~besh -cut bone contains about equal
Kparts of protein and fat.
:Mistnae hai'e been made in feeding
green bone in .giving too liberal a
uantit. An excess will produce

It is a good plan to have awnings

is not advisable, however, to have
these awnings up during the winter,
as the sunlight is needed in the house

SPRAYING FOR CODLING MOTH
Insect That Causes Wormy Apples

The best spray for codling moth is
