B Our present knowledge of feeding
H can be boiled down into the follow-
H ing maxims:
H The more food the cow can be in
H ducrd to cat, the more milk she will
H produce. Cows do not usually eon'
H sume more food that they can prop
yl erly digest. The ration, therefore
H should be made as palatable a$ poc
H siblc in ordor to induce (ire cow to
H oat large quttatftics.
H The larger the amount of protein
H in the ration, the larger the milk flow.
H Protein in the ration is essential to
H the production of the milk.
H The less energy required to digest
H the ration, the larger the milk flow.
H The richer the ration, the richer the
H manure The- dairy farmer must Joelt
H here for a large part of Jiis profit.
H No two cows can be fed' alike, l$ah
H must be studied difforeitly. Increase ,
H the protein in the nation and watch
H' the milk flow. Professor C. L.

Strangely enough the average Am
erican farmer has been persistently
engaged in making a complete hodge
podge of his cattle for a hundred
ywtrs or more. Go on to any farm
almost, and one will sec all sorts and
sizes", all kindfe of color, showing that
the Owner has followed the mixing
idea in his breeding. This is all
wrong, if the farmer is after the most
profiU.hl'C dairy cattle he can produce.
Tf such farmers were students of the
laws of heredity, they would know
better. Occasionally, but rarely, how
ever, is an out-cross from any estab
lif bedtime of preceding productive of
beneficial results.

As far as he will go is to purchase

experience of the most successful

It dos not seem to have gotten in
to the comprehension of most farm
ers that the best results come from
concentrating rather than scattering
blood linos. In that way the ten
dencies of the sire and mother can
be made to unite with each other in
the resulting progeny. If farmers

The buyers who come to Wiscon
sin to purchase Holstcin cows for

cows that arc typical Holsteins. Such
cattle the farmer cannot furnish if he
has been flopping about breeding to

Jersey icow that has had the end of
one teat cut off from which the milk
leaks out. Could anything be done
to stop this leakage and save the
teat? Tf the toat were dried up would
the production of milk of the cow be
diminished? How would you pro
ceed to dry it up?
Answer By H. J. Frederick.
Where the small circular muscle
on the end of the teat is cut off or
injured the milk will leak out. This
can be overcome by inserting a bougie
or stopper into the milk duct. It is
much the shape of a collar button and
ocludcs the duct. .It -can be left in
from one milking to another; it is us
ually made of gutta-pcrchia and it
acts as a stopper in the end of teat,
A caustic could also be used to con
tract the end of the teat and possibly
close it enough to hold the milk. If
you wish to stop the milk in that
quarter, a caustic must be injected
Into that quarter and this should be
done when the cow is dry.
