I^^^JOBRANCHTrORE^^^^J Science Seeks to Perpetuate Heavy-Producing Farm Animals By Thomos R. Henry i There are cows in the world which produce about 10 times as much : milk in a year as the average Amer I ican cow does on the same amount of hay and grain. There are hens which lay more than twice as many eggs a year as I the average hen. There are pigs which attain the average slaughtering rate of 225 pounds in six months at a\ cost of about 800 pounds of grain. The av erage pig requires a year to reach this weight at a cost of about 1,600 pounds of grain. Difficult to Perpetuate. Some progress now is being made on the perpetuation of these qual ities in breeding which may be of inestimable value to American agri culture, according to a communica tion to the American Association for the Advancement of Science here by Dr. Samuel Brody of the Animal Husbandry Department of the Uni versity of Missouri. The great difficulty, it is pointed out, is the extremely complex hered ity and the need for rejuvenating aging stock so that the genes re sponsible for rapid growth and pro duction will not be lost to the world. The average unimproved cow, Dr. Brody points out, will produce about 1.000 pounds of milk a year. Such animals have been weeded out generally in the United States, so ;that the average production is 4.500 pounds. This also is the average for Great Britain and Canada, but the average in Denmark runs to 7.500 pounds. Dr. Brody says, however, there are actually a few cows now producing 42.000 pounds of milk in a year. In every other respect they | are like ordinary cows and consume no more food. “An unimproved fowl." he says. ■ may lay some 30 eggs a year be ginning at I year of age. The av erage production in Missouri in 1945 was 152 eggs and the highest indi vidual record was 354 eggs. There are rare chickens that begin laying at 5'i months of age and produce 360 eggs in the first year.’’ Fowl Rejuvenated. Unfortunately, he points out,‘very few of these exceptional animals transmit thfse qualities to their | progeny. By the time their at- i tributes become known they are too j old to breed. Some progress is ! being made at the University of Missouri, he reports, in rejuvenating New York Barbers 'Clipped' Despite Haircut Price Rise By the Associated Press NEW YORK, Oct, 25.—Mid town» Manhattan barbers yelled today that they were being clipped.

This [treatment has been applied on a large scale and the average 5-year old bird has been made to lay ap proximately 30 per cent more eggs than control birds of the same age. Another line of experimentation is to produce a sweating cow. The common dairy breeds in America. Dr. Urody points out. originated in Northern Europe, a land of damp, cool summers.

Summers through a large part of the American dairy belt are likely to be very hot. The result is that the cow* stop eating and produc tion falls off. Cattle of Southern Asia, on the other hand, perspire profusely but are poor milk producers. Efforts are being made to preserve both the ability to perspire and high produc tion in crosses between the two! types.
