The way to make such a dairy pay j?
Is to establish a reputation for high om

One problem af the dairyman ls to tn,

ed. either throuch dirt falling Into lt pa
or by Its absorption of undesirable tei
odors. If the stables are clean, dry ^
and well ventilataxl there will he no ap
bud odors for the milk to absorb Of te
course there should lie no cesspools j.
nlaout tho stables, jmd the ground nu- Br
der the barn should lae well drained. t,f
Poor drainage cannot help but cause
object iona hie odors aliout the barn. 0f
The udder and the flanks of the cow Tj
should Ik- thoroughly wiped with a cf

One of the cardinal |>oints that a rp

In farming as n manufacturing enter?
prise, lu any other phase of industrial
activity such negligence of business
methods would spell bankruptcy. The
Batten k test and a pair of scales make
it possible for every farmer to keep ac?
curate accounts willi each cow In his
herd, and where this ls done It does
not take long to convince the owner
that the cow that does not pay her
board bad l>etter move on. But as yet
the major portion of dalry farmers have
uot risen to the point where they test
each cow's production. Through the
organisation of co-operative cow test?
ing associations lu a number of differ
ent states improvement ls treing rapid?
ly made, hut it ls probably a safe estl
tuate today to assume that 20 |>er cent
of the milk producing cattle In this
great dairy state of Wisconsin are not
paying their owuers for the feed and
care which they require.

FEEDS FOR DAIRY COWS.
Som Silage lt Better Than Mixture of
Field Pass and Oata.
Canada field peas aud oats sown on
food soil nnd under favorable condi?
tions will be ready for soiling or en?
silage In about two and a half months,
rhe growing of oata and peas together.
lays Hoard's Dairyman, produces a
larger amount of nutrients per acre
thnn when grown separately. The
combination works well and produces
a very palatable feed.
In 100 pounds of corn silage there
are 17.2 pounds of digestible nutrients
and in 100 pounds of oats and pea
silage ".bout IS pounds. Tbe compo?
sition of all feedstuffs varies, especial?
ly when cut green; but. on the whole,
lt is safe to say that corn silage will
contain more digestible nutrients tban
oata and peas, although tbe oats and
peas are richer in protein.
It would not be advisable to sow
clover or timothy seed with oats and
peas, for they form a very dense
growth wblch would not permit the
young clover or timothy plants to
grow. nnd. If they did. they would lie
so weak thnt after the peas nnd oats
were removed, the sun's rays would tie
very apt to kilt them. We do not
think lt advisable under any conditions
to sow grass seed with oats and peas.
Novel Chicken Roost.
Q. Derer, an Oklahoma subscriber
of the Iowa Homestead, sent a unique
plan for a chicken roost. Take a cart
wheel and
stab the
axle into
g r o u u d
or cut the
axle in
two. bolt
lt to a
chicken roost. post and
set tbe post in the ground. When tbe
chicken bouse needs cleaning all you
need to do ls to lift tbe wheel off and
lt ls out of tbe way. Then, too, if
there ls a chicken on tbe other side
from you that you wish to catch. Just
turn the wheel around. This makes
a very convenient chicken roost.
