Farmers' Week at U. of M.
' Farmers' Week at the University
of Missouri College of Agriculture
-will be January 19 to 23. Into the
five days of this mid-winter short
course will be crowded an extensive
series of lectures, demonstrations,
reports, meetings, and entertain
ments for the benefit of the farmer
and hi3 wife or anyone else inter
ested in practical agriculture.
"If all farmers of this state could
be reached with an invitation set
ting forth the good things in store
for . that week," says Dean F. B
Mumford 'we would have an attend
ance of more than five thousand."
And Dean Mumford is not promising
a week's program "better than ever
before," altho he says there will be
aonre demonstrations greatly superi
or to anything previously offered in
their respective lines. He says the
usual high standard will be main
tained in all departments thruout
the week is a promise sufficient to
those who have attended other
farmers' weeks at Columbia.

Breeding Ewes. (
Experience has shown that ewes
should always he healthy, have
liood teeth and be strong and vigor
ous. They should enrry a moderate
Htiiouot of flesh and it is essential
t!i4t they he so cared for that they
will oot lose weight during the
winter. Well fed ewe are most
likely to fcive birth to stroug, vigor-'
otis lambs. Ewes that are ia good
condition will be more liberal milk

greatest demands are made on the ;

Hogs Feed Themselves.
Wherever labor can be saved on
the farm and results accomplished
just as satisfactorily, by all means
save the labor. Results of experi
ments at the University of Missouri
Collegs of Agriculture Jwith self-
feeders for fattening hog3 show that
those eating from a self-feeder gain
more rapidly than those depending
on the hand-feeding methods. The
amount of feed necessary to pro
duce a. pound of pork remains
practically the same, but the
amount of labor is usually reduced.
It is this decrease in labor which
enters as a factor in cheapening the
cost of producing pork.
Shelter Farm Machinery.
"Many thousands of dollars are
lost every year thru rust and neg
lect of farm machinery. Rust is
the beginning of the, .end and an
implement or machine which is al
lowed to get rusty will sooa Ueak
or become useless. The best steel
cannot withstand the inroads of
the elements without surface pro
taction. Be sure to put your farm
machinery under cover this winter,
and before doing so, clean well and
give it a coat of surface Jprotec
tion." This advice by the paint and
varnish dealers meets the approval
of the University of Missouri College
of Agriculture which. purges the
ewes and in order to have the ewes
in condition to stand this drain on
their system it is necessary for us
to see to it that they are in good
condition of flesh prior to lambing.
To be sure to have them in proper
condition we must begin in the fall
and feed them properly thruout the
winter, according to D. A. Spencer
of the University of Missouri Col
lege of Agriculture. This cannot
be accomplished in just a few days
or even a month.
While it is necessarj to keep the
ewes gainiog during the winter and
up until lambing time and they
should receive liberal feed during
this time, yet a large portion of
their rations may be made, up of
cheap feeds of little commercial
value. On most Missouri farms
there are pastures, stubble fields
and corn stalks to be utilized,
tiluegrass and timothy pastures
may be grazed much of the time
during the fall, but it is safer not to
depend on these as the only feeds
at this time. They should be used,
but not as the sole ration.
When the ewes are in thin condi
tion, it will be advisable to begin
feeding grain along with roughage
soon after the first of December.
Uuless the ewes are very thin in
flesh, it is not necessary to feed
more than a half pound a head
daily for ewes weighing 150 pounds.
A good ration consists of equal
parts of oats and bran or two parts
of oats, two parts bran and one
part of corn. Where available, it
may be economical to feed one half
to two pounds of good clean corn
silage per ewe per day and about
the same weight of clover or alfalfa
hay. . Where a good legume, such
as clover, alfalfa or soybean hay
makes up the major portion of the
raugbage, it will v i. bly oot be
necessary to give ewes that are in
good condition any grain until
about six .weeks before lambing.
At this time, it may be well to feed
the ewes a little grain, about one
quarter pound a head daily of equal
parts of corn and oats. In any
event, in compounding rations the
farmer must realize that economy
and efficiency should be the watch
words and feed enough to have the
ewes gain from 15 to 25 pounds
each during the winter.
No greater mistake could be
made than to place in the bauds of
the government such lines of public
service as railroads, telegraph and
express, where an abundance of
red-tape and a lack of individual
responsibility has completely de
moralized the service, followed by
utter disregard for the public wel
fare and a general depreciation. Un-
i der governmental control there is
j no encouragement for initiative or
individual enterprise The result is
too often inefficiency, dissatisfac
tion and a general lowering of bus
iness standards. Glasgow JMissou
