places, It has been difficult to soeur;
it at all, making It advisable to use
something in place of this feed. To
find satisfactory substitutes was the
object of exjK-rimeiits conducted by
the poultry specialists of the depart

feed's, making the ration as follows:
A scrut'-h mixture of two parts crack

a mash of nine parts i-ornmeal,
live parts middlings-. f.-,r p:irts bran,
two parts beef s-rap, and two parts
of either peanut meal, soy-henn meal,
or velvet-vctcti nual. All of these
parts aie by weight. A si'i dar ra

been fed with good results for over
one year. The percentac of protein

cottonseed meal, .'IS; peanut meal, JS;
and velvet-bean meal, 10.
The egg yield for the first three
lri'Miths has been fairly good with all
of these feeds, but not ijuite as good
as has been secured from the use of a
normal amount of beef scrap. The
highest egg yield was secured from
the peanut meal; nearly as good re
sults from the soy-bean meal, but only
a fair eirg yield from the velvet-bean
meal. It would appear that all of
these feeds are worthy of a trial, used
with beef scrap, i.i sections wher
they are easily set tired. These test
will have to be carried through a ce.i.
