As a result of the conference of representatives of the purebred dairy cattle associations neld In Washing ton. May 5, at the call of Dr. C W. Larson, chief of the dairy division of the United States Department of Agriculture, a number of Important recommendations were made for the Improvement of the dairy Industry, especially the purebred dairy cattle businesu. Each of tfte breed associa tions. Including the Ayrshire, Brown Swiss, Guernsey, Holstein-Frleslan, and Jersey, was represented by two or more delegates. The subjects of dis cussion had to do with the Improve ment of dairy cattle, advanced regis try, fairs, and sales. No conferences of this kind bad been held for several years, and the representatives expressed the desire tbut this one might result In the for mation of a permanent organization to thresh out problems of mutual interest and to work for the general better ment of the Industry. Figures pre pared by the department showed a de cided need for improvement in dairy animals and In making the best use of the Improved animals that are now available. The average production of co-operate. In this connection It was suggested that the various representa tives ask their associations at their earliest meetings to appoint commit tees to meet with the Dairy Science association to see if an Improved plan for making official tests of cows can be worked out, which will be agreeable to the breeders, the associations, and the colleges that send out the official testers. The showing of dairy animals at fairs and exposition received a good deal of attention from several angles. It was decided to recommend to tha associations that they cease giving money prizes at these shows, but spend the funds In putting on educa tional exhibits; that more attention should be given to production records In awarding prizes at fairs and shews; that the associations repre sented should give more attention to educational exhibits showing the eco nomic advantage of purebreds In dairy practice; that each association has a distinct duty In conuectlon with tho selection of suitable persons to act as judges of the various breeds of dairy cattle at fairs and shows; that no ani mals should be admitted to fairs and expositions unless thy are from herds accredited as being free of tubercu FATTENING MARKET POULTRY f J I y A I w' I 4. 1 aS1. " There la a Decided Need for improve ment In Dairy Animals and in Making the Best Use of Those Now Available. tbe cows of the United States Is about 4,000. pounds of milk and 160 pounds of butterfat a year, while the average cow In some other countries produces almost twice as much. There are SO million grade and scrub dairy animals In the country and le?s than a million purebreds. There are 4,506,604 Amer ican farms having dairy cattle, and only 208,251 of these farms have pure bred dairy cattle. It Is estimated that approximately 250,000 purebred' dairy buH calves born each year are not needed on the farms where purebreds are kept. Of the purebred animals that were registered iast year, about 150,000 were females and less than 75,000 males, which indicates that not half of the purebred dairy bulls are registered. Recommend Better Sires. Among the recommendations mnde by the conference were those express ing approval of plans for increasing the use of purebred bulls in scrub and grade herds, and of the plans for co operative bull associations as being the best known means for distributing surplus bulls and introducing them into new territory. Although there Is place In this country for all the purebred dairy cattle that may be pro duced for some time, It was the con sensus of opinion that an expert busi ness In purebreds would help to stimu late Interest among farmers at home. A number of questions related to advanced registry were brought up. Co-ordination of effort by and between the agricultural colleges and the breed associations was suggested, and It was recommended that these organizations and institutions make special efforts to losls or In herds under federal or state supervision, and that fairs not enforc ing such a rule should not be favored with animals for exhibits. i Live Stock Sales Discussed. Questions relating to private and public sales were discussed, and It was decided to suggest a meeting at an early date of all the dairy cattle asso ciations with a view to drafting a code of ethics for sales that would elim inate some of the undesirable condi tions. Since an excessive amount of attention is given to a few high prices to the neglect of average conditions, It was also agreed to recommend to the associations tint t they send In to the bureau of markets and crop esti mates of the department regular re ports of prices paid for purebred dairy cattle. The list of associations and their representatives taking part In the con ference Is as follows: Ayrshire Breeders' association : Paul O. Keymann, president, West Virginia ; O. L. Burlingham, secretary, Vermont. Brown Swiss Cattle Breeders' asso ciation: A. E. Bower, president, Ohio; L. E. Hull, Ohio. American Guernsey Cattle club: Robert Scovllle, president. New York; S. M.

Great Variety of Feeds Can Be Used in Preparing Fowls Broiler Grow Rapidly. (Prepared by the United Statea Department of Agriculture.) The most desirable types of. rations and the most profitable feeding periods for the different classes of poultry fat tened in packing plants are discussed in Department Bulletin 1052, Itafions for Feeding Poultry in the Packing House, Just Issued by the bureau of chemistry of the United States De partment of Agriculture. Since the fleshing of poultry has become a large Industry in the United States, infor mation of the kind contained in this bulletin should be of a great deal of value. The results obtained In the experi ments reported In this bulletin show that a great variety of feeds can be used In fattening broilers, springs, ft REFILLING SACKS IS PROHIBITED (Prepared by the United State Department Ol Agriculture, j Some feed dealers are refilling used feed sacks stamped or printed with the name of the manufacturer and the brand name of the feed that was orlcinallv in the sack, so that the names and brands are not true In reference to the feed In the sack after refllllne. according to officials of the bureau of chemistry, United States De partment of Agriculture, who are charged with the enforcement of the Food and Drugs act. A feed dealer of Iowa was recently cited to a hearing under the Federal Food and Drugs act for shipping Into Interstate commerce a molasses feed in bass which he had refilled but which bore the name of another feed manufacturer. The sacks also bore a brand name under which the original owner of the sacks sold a stock feed of much huzher grade than the feed with which the sacks were refilled. The Federal Food and Drugs act does not reaulre the name of the man ufacturer or the brand name to ap pear on sacks of feed coming with. In Its jurisdiction, according to offi cials of the bureau, but If the name of the manufacturer and brand are given on the sack they must be true. The Food and Drugs act prohibits the use of any statements on foods or feeds that are false or mislead ing in any particular. A dealer who contemplates refilling used feed sacks on which Is printed the name of another manufacturer or any statements that are not correct when applied to l"..e product he uses In refilling the sacks should be very careful to see that all such statements are obliterated.

Young Plymouth Rock Broiler. roasters and hens, a fortunate situa tion since It permits the feeder to adapt his ration to market conditions by taking advantage of speclaL prices of certain feeds and also to use feeds available locally. A growing blrrti such as a broiler or spring, requires a different ration than a mature hen, which changes most of her feed Into fat. A simple ration of corn meal and buttermilk Is about as good as any for hens. Broilers fed rations containing protein concentrates, such as peanut meal, coconut oil, soy-bean meal, or meat scrap made appreciably better gains than those fed on corn meal and buttermilk. They grow rapidly and need tissue-forming feeds. Springs also respond readily to rations con taining protein concentrates. Throughout the 14-day feeding pe riod broilers continued to gain well, which shows that this Is not too long a feeding period. Springs grew very rapidly during the first 11 days, but not so rapidly, though profitably, dur ing the remaining three days. Roast ers gained well during the first two four-day periods, but not so well the last six days. It was found that the practice of feeding hens only six t eight days is well founded. The dress ing and chilling shrinkage of hens, however, was much less than In the case of broilers, springs and roasters. Any of the ordinary cereal grains supply the necessary carbohydrates and fats. More care Is needed in se lecting feeds for protein, salts and vitamines. The proteins of the cereal grains are present In too small amounts and are of too poor quality to produce the best results in broilers and springs unless other protein con- . centrates are added. Milk and cereals make one of the most profitable ra tions, as milk supplies mineral sub stances, vitamines and very valuabla proteins. The results given In the bul letin show that peanut meal protein, as well as soy-bean meal protein, is especially valuable. The proteins of buttermilk are especially valuable, and If used In sufficiently large amounts produce very desirable re sults. Other protein concentrates are meat and fish scraps, cottonseed meal, coconut meal and sesame-seed meal. Corn, wheat, oats and other grains lack such mineral substances as cal cium, sodium and chlorine which growing animals require. In the ra tions where buttermilk or skim milk Is used, these Ingredients are fairly well supplied. Milk also supplies vita mines. At present tTie milk uvailabla for poultry-fleshing purposes Is largely buttermilk, fresh, condensed or pow dered.
