P. M. Brandt Presents DaU Showing
Difference In Prodacing Qualities.
About one-thlri. of the cows
milked today for profit do not pay
for their keep," Bald P. M. Brandt,
instructor in dairy husbandry at the
University of Missouri, In a lecture
"The most successful dairyman !
the one who can tell first which cow
in his herd does not pay," he said.
"It costs just about as much to keep
a poor cow as It does to keep a good
The speaker presented data from
several experiment stations. He
shrowed that in some herds there
were cows producing $75 worth of
butter fat annually above expenses.
Other cows in the same herd were
not paying for their keep.
According to Mr. Brandt, the way
to tell whether a cow pays Is to take
the difference between the cost of
fat and milk produced from each cow
in the herd. In testing the herd, the
feed and care and the value of butter
fat and milk produced from each
tlon and the increase In population
of. the country with the consequent
high cost of living. He also emphas
ized the need of cattle feeders co
operating. Prof. W. A. Cochel of the Kansas
Agricultural College, delivered an ad

ing the eight years since he had been
out of college be had carried on ex
perlments in cattle feeding. in an en

ed that the average profit made on
corn by feeding instead of selling the
grain was 30 cents a bushel

Robert Hall, Former Stiideat, Tells
of His Soccess.
Robert Hall of Lamonte, Pettis
County, who finished life short course
in agriculture last year and was on
the staff of the College Farmer, came
back during Farmers Week to tell
"Why I Intend to Remain a Farmer."
He says that the farm boy should
be responsible for and have a share
in the stock and crops. His special
ties are sheep and seed corn. Start
ing with eight ears sent out by the
College of Agriculture year before
last he has raised seed corn which
brought fa $360 last year. This fall
the premiums amounted to $78 and
included several prizes at the State
Fair. By experiment he has found
that the best seed ears are long,
smooth, cylindrical and heavy.
"Farm management teaches inten
sive methods. Mr. Doane of that de
partment sent me to Kansas City
to plant ten acres of oat stubble in
alfalfa. I disked the ground three
times, plowed it deep, "crushed the
clods with roller and harrow, dragged
it smooth, sowed 18 pounds per acre
and harrowed it In. Last year the
field yielded nearly 40 tons. A neigh
bor sowed 40 pounds and didn't get
so good a stand, and another failed
because he plowed the ground with

problems confront the cattle men."
said the dean, "and If you can solve
the problem of cheaper meat and, at
the same time, better prices for cat
tle you will do a great thing." Sta
