Some Timely Dont's
Don't fail to select your seed this fall. Corn, soy beans,
velvet beans, peas and peanuts should be selected 'and carefully
stored. Seed may be scarce next spring.
Don't fail to plant cabbages-while the fall crop is large,
it is thought there will be a heavy demand for the spring crop.
Don't fail to make your arrangements for seed potatoes. If
Maine seed are used, have them shipped as early as safety will
permit, so as to avoid possi:le transportation congestion.
Don't fail to plant a few acres in wheat, and then plant
other cover crops such as clover, rye and vetch.
Don't fail to lay up stock feed for winter use. Fill the
silos, cut sorghum and peavine hay, cut lespedeza for hay and seed.
Don't sell your work stock. They are necessary for working
Don't fail to look over your live stock carefully. Select
those animals which are productive and which ought to be kept,
and sell those which are unproductive. Prepare the cull animals
for early market, and save the room and feed for good stock.
Don't sell brood sows. Since the beginning of the war the
number of swine in all countries has decreased. In France, for
example, in the three years just before January 1, 1917, the
number of swine decreased 38.12 per cent; during 1915 the number
in Germany decreased 31.47 per cent. Breeding stocks are being
depleted and the situation is aleady critical. The possible in
crease from one sow is 1,002 pigs in four years, on the supposi
tion that all litters consist of six pigs, that all live, that half are
females, and that each gilt should farrow at one year and every
six months thereafter.
Don't sell any heifer calves for slaughter; there is going to
be a worl shortage of cattle, and this country will have to supply
the world's needs after the war.
Don't fail to write us if you think we can be of service.
We are intercested in everything that has a tendency to develop
and improve our agricultural production and marketing systems.

Sheep can be successfully wintered
with a smaller use of -grain-.than is
needed for other live stock. "If in
good condition at the - Ieginning of
winter and given the right kind of
hay they can be carried through the
winter without grain unless the lambs
are to be dropped l before- going to
pasture. All depends upon the kind
of hay or other roughage used.
Legume hays'stand at the forefront
as a roughage for sheep. No other
approach them in feeding values. The
coarse-stemmed hays like timothy,
red top and blue grass, have very
few leaves, %hnd therefore- are poor
sheep feeds. Hays having a large
amount of timothy in them also are
undesirable. Not'only is timothy un
palatable to the sheep, but it causes
serious cases of constipation. The
dry timothy heads work into the skin,
lessening the value of the clip and
making shearing difficult. When tim
othy or other coarse-stemmed hay is
fed to sheep in winter quarters it
becomes necessary to use some sup
lSlementary feed to keep the sheep in
If any non-legume had is fed, sup
plementary protein feed is needed.
Linseed meal is good, since in addi
tion to furnishing protein it counter
acts the constipating effect of timothy
hay. From one-quarter to one-half
pound of linseed mead per ewe daily
should be used, depending upon the
size and condition of the animal and
the other feed used.
In an experiment conducted at the
Missouri station the relative values
of clover anJd timothy hays for win
tering ewes were determined. Fifteen
ewes fed 2.9 pounds timothy hay and
0.35 pound grain per head daily lost
7.6 pounds each during the same time
that another lot receiving the same
weight of grain and clover hay gained
6.5. pounds. The fourteen ewes fed
clover hay droped sixteen strong
lambs, while those fed timothy drop
ped eleven strong and five weak
lambs. The lambs from the ewes fel
clover hay gained more rapidly dur
ing the first thirty days than did
those from the ewes fed timothy hay.

Breeding stocks are being depleted,

most readlily be met by swvine p~rodiue

breeding stocks is proably in the
