Q. I hare been hearing a lot about
this built-up litter. Is it a practical
method and if so how does one go
about the job? J. C. T., Missoula
A. There are a great many people
using built-up litter and liking it.
But it must be done according to
Hoyle or it doesn't work.
In the first place it is useless to
try built-up litter unless one has a
well ventilated and well insulated
house, so that the moisture will not
condense in the house.
Next, the process must be started
early in the fall so that at least 4 or
5 inches of very finely broken up
straw is on the floor before cold
weather sets in. If the straw is not
finely broken up, one is adding the
straw too rapidly.
The principle of the finely broken
litter with the droppings intermixed,
is that it acts as an insulating pad
between the cold floor and the warm
air of the room. If the litter is not
dry, many find that the situation can
be helped by adding a little slacked
lime and working this in with the
Of course, should there be a dis
ease outbreak, the floor must be
thoroughly cleaned and the whole
process started over again.
Turkey School Set
for Dec. 5
THE FOURTH ANJTUAL Mon
tana Turkey School and Dressed
Turkey show will be held at Mon
tana State college Dec. 5 and 6 with
well known leaders in the industry
appearing on the two-day program.
The combined school and show
is sponsored by the Montana Poul
try Improvement board, Montana
Turkey federation, Montana State
college and interested commercial
firm? and organizations.
The show is open to exhibitors
from Montana and outside the state
and it will consist of five divisions—
New York dressed, oven dressed,
individual gift packages, special
processed packages, and box packed.
After the show the birds will be sold
at public auction.
Hold That Bird
(Continued from page 1)
if you have more birds than the
family can handle efficiently, I
guess you'll just have to contact one
of our altogether too few dressing
plants in the state.
If you need this information, I
will gladly write you personally as
to which plant is nearest you. We
find that turkeys can be trucked
about 200 miles with no appreciable
Of course, some of you may want
to dress at home, but would like to
speed up your operations and make
better use of your labor. Some
years ago a grower in the Gallatin
valley asked us to work out a
scheme for streamlining picking op
erations. The plans worked out
well. They found that they cut the
picking time in half. The track
and rollers were homemade. Because
this worked out so well we have
plans for the scheme in our Poultry
Equipment bulletin which can be ob
tained through your county agent's
office or by writing to me.
Whatever you do, hold that bird
until he's finished. Even a drop in
price will be more than balanced by
obtaining a better grade.
