Operation Is Not Difficult When Clip- j

Without Crushing. j
I?y C. K. UltASTtKAIt. Missouri College
Dehorning is not the painful opera
tion it used to he. The clipper ia
taking the place of tho dehorning
Raw. Its advantages are that it. is
iuoro quickly operated and it gives
the animal h-ss pain.
It baa the further advantage that
the close confinement of tho animal
necessary for tho operation of tha
saw ia not needed in the nso of the
clipper. It Is used successfully with
out a dehorning chute.
The animal is tied to a tree with a
rope, passed around the neck. A ring
wlru a rope attached is placed In the
nose and pulled in the direction oppo
site the tree. This throws the bead
In position for dehorning.
The horn is more often cut too hifh
than too floao. In fact. It Is hard to
cut the horn too close, and the horn
cuts easier low. The wound also heals
quicker and the head is given a nicer
shape. A ring of skiu should be tak
en oir with the born.
It ifl a good plan to grease the clip
pers with grease that is mixed with
3c-ie disinfectant, such as creoline.
'fne best clipper on the market has
V-shaped notches in the blades. It
clips the hern off easily, without
onishimr. Tho knife with straight
edges tends to crush the horn and is
harder to operate.
Neither of these men make very
much money through the deal, but
they force their horses to pay for
their winter board and to come
through In splendid shape for the
summer's heavy grind.

STAPLE FOOD FCR POULTRY
Crain Is Beneficial to All Farm Fowls,
' but Variety Is Necessary for
Grain is the staple food for poul
try, and will oe used for that purpose
as long as fowls are kept on farms;
but hens can not give good results
en grain alone. It is beneficial to
them and will be at all times rel
ished, but the demands of the bens
are such as to call for a variety. In
the shells of eggs as well as their
composition are several forms of min
eral matter and nitrogen, which can
only be partially obtained from grain, i
i Even grains vary in composition,
and when fowls are fed on one kind ;
for a long time, they will begin to re- j
fuso it, as they may be oversupplled j
w ith the elements of the food par; j
taken and l3ck the elements that a )
best supplied from some other source.
For this reason they will accept a
1 change of food, which is of itself
an evidence that the best resultB
from hens can only be obtained by
a variety of food. Corn and wheat
; may be used as food with advantage,
but must bo given as a portion of
the ration and not made exclusive ar
ticles of diet.
