COLD STORAGE EGG INDUSTRY
Infallible Rule Is for Farmer to Mar

(Dy M. M. HASTINGS.)
Tho cold storngo egg Industry Is a
development of tho last twonty-flvo
years. Undoubtedly tho Industry aa

both egg producer and egg consumer,
and has tended toward the leveling of
tho price of eggs throughout tho year
and has resulted In a large Increase In
tho fall and winter consumption. This
means a larger total demand and a
consequent lncreaso In price.
Owing to tho fact that eggs aro
spoiled by hard fnezlng, they niUBt bo
kept at a higher temperature than
meat1 and butter. Temperatures of
from 29 to 32 degreos Fntironholt are
used In cold Etorago of eggs. At such
temperatures the eggs. If Kept In moUt

of holding fall eggs without Btorago

Without careful attention nfter

to the size or value it was meant to

and they need sunlight and fresh nlr.
The colts should not be confined to a

For oach 100 poundr of meat use the
