and by substituting present dosts 'and t
values for the varipus items a farm
er can determine very closely what it
is costing him to produce 100 poupds
,of milk at the present time. ,
In the summer months the require- b
ments for 100 pounds of milk were as 1
follows: Concntrates, 20 pounds; dry d
roughage, 27.4 pounds; silage and oth- I
er succulent roughage, 60.1 pounds;
hauling and grinding - con-entrates,
$0,014; pasture. 0.04 acre; Puman lab
or, 2.2 hours; horse labor, 0.2 hour;
overhead and other costs, $0.393.
In the winter months the require
ments for production were;- Concen
trates, 38.6 pounds; dry roughage, 66.8
pounds; silage and other succulent
roughage, 147.6 pounds; hauling and
grinding concentrates, $0.03; beddixig
20.3 pounds; human labor, 2.5 hurs;
horse labor, 0.3 'hour; overhead and
other costs, $0.385.
It has been generally believed that
the cost of producing milk and con
siderably higher in winter than in sum
mer; and while this holds true as far
as the gross cost is conterned, the
figures obtained in this investigation
show that the net cost of producing
100 pounds of milk from November to
April was only 1.8 per cent higher
than the cost from May to October,
inclusive, and that the total cost
varied only slightly from month to
month with each of these seasons.
This small difference between net
costs of production during winter and
summer is largely due to the greater
credit allowed for manure during the
The price received for the milk,
however, fluctuated sharply from
month to month.
Further details on requirements for
milk production, including such factors
as cost of keeping a cow for one year,
cost of keeping a bull, proportion of
work performed by each class of labor,
-percentage relation of various factors
in the cost of production, and other de
tails, are presented in Department Bul

ADVERTISE IN THE TIMES
Washington, Aug. 8.--A bright pic
ture of the national coal situation is
painted by the geological survey in
figures made public today, covering
coal production and transportation
for the week of July 31.
Despite a decrease ii production of
1,523,000 tons as compared with the
previous week, clue to the strike of
mine laborers in Illinois and Indiana,
the end of July found bituminous pro
duction since the beginning of the
year to have reached 302,527,000 tons,
an icrease of 44,500,000 tons Qve rthe
amount mneld up to July 31 last y- ar.
Anthracite production also compares
favorably with 1919, having reached
~50,57,O00 tons on July 31, as com..d
~pared with 47,U07,000 tons at the endI
of July of 191i.
Reports to the survey as to car sup
ply indicated at the end of July "no
