(Prepared by the United 9tntee De pert me« t of Agriculture.) What will a dairy cow do In the way of milk and butterfat production when foil on roughage exclusively? Per haps the consensus of opinion Is that she will not do very well, but the United States Department of Agricul ture has some figures that show what a few cows did that were fed on al falfa hay and com silage, without grain. A mature Holstein cow was pas tured on irrigated, tame grass at the department farm at Huntley, Mont. During the winter months she received nothing but com silage and alfalfa hay. She was under test and was milked three times a day. For 140.5 days and 98 nights she was on pas ture. During the rest of the year she consumed 9,014 pounds of alfalfa hay and 8,985 pounds of com silage, a rather large amount of bulky feed. While this ration was fed the cow maintained her weight at practically what It was at the beginning of the test, and produced 14,210.1 pounds of milk and 470.24 pounds of butterfat. For the 12 months following the next freshening this same cow was milked three times a day and given, In addition to roughage, all the grain she would eat. The surprising fact Is that she ate 7,056 pounds of grain and practically the same amount of roughage as before. The actual quan tities of roughage were 10,003 pounds of alfalfa hay, 8,325 pounds of silage and 4,230 pounds of beets. She was on pasture 130 days and no nights. The milk production for the year was 25,499.4 pounds, and butterfat 823.11 pounds, and the gain In weight 200 pounds. But notice the difference In the nu trients required to produce the prod uct the first year and the second year, when 75 per cent more butterfat was produced. The first year, over and above maintenance and In addition to pasture, the cow consumed for each 100 pounds of butterfat 156.37 pounds of digestible protein and 558.69 pounds of total digestible nutrients, and for each 1,000 pounds of milk yielded she used 51.7 pounds of digestible protein and 184.8 pounds of total digestible nutrients. The second year, when she received all the grain she would eat, she re ceived above maintenance and In ad dition to pasture, In the production of 100 pounds of butterfat, 218.7 pounds oi digestible protein uml 1074.4 pounds SEE A Record-Breaking Holstein Cow. of total digestible nutrients; and In the production of 1,000 pounds of milk she used 70.43 pounds of digestible protein and 345.9 pounds of total di gestible nutrients. , From a nutrition Standpoint the cow made a more economical use of the roughage ration than of the rough age plus heavy grain ration. No at tempt was made to compare the rel ative economy of the two systems of feeding on a dollars-and-cents basis, as the relation between prices of roughage, grain, milk, and butterfat, which vary by localities and seasons, would be a large factor In determining this question. There are now several cows on this farm that have records made on rough Goat Team Dedicating the Giacier Trail V ".v This team of billy goats hitched to a diminutive prairie schooner is traveling over the Glacier Trail from 8t. Louis to the Glacier National park to dedicate the new auto route. It la being driven by relays of boy scout* age alone. .One "made 477 pounds ox | butterfat in 350 days, and promises to ! have a record of 490 pounds at the end of her year, which will be within 45 pounds of the record made the year before when grain was fed. Another cow In the herd made 345 pounds of butterfat In 245 days without grain, and still another 195 pounds In 120 days. It Is now planned to try some of them on moderate grain rations to make comparisons of the amounts of nutrients required to make butterfat and milk under all conditions. Later and more complete figures on additional cows will show the efTect on production of three plans of nu trition—no gruin ration, light grain ration, and heavy grain ration. The relative prices of milk, butterfat, and feed will then determine the method of feeding most profitable for a given section. rani usa STARVE MITES IN HEN HOUSE In Tests Made Parasites Were Still Alive After 113 Days In Aban doned Building. (Prepared by th« United State« Department of Affiiculture.) It takes several months to starve the mites In an Infested chicken house af ter the poultry has been removed. In test made by the United States'* De partment of Agriculture some mites were still alive after 118 days In an abandoned hen house. The nests In dicated, too, that the mites live longer In damp locations than In very dry conditions, which accounts, In part at least, for the Idea that mites are worse In damp, badly ventilated houses. The only way to get rid of these pests Is to break up their hiding places. Dust baths will not control them. Roosts should be taken down, and all unnecessary boards removed. In badly infested houses the mites are to be found everywhere. Including the roof. For small coops a hand atomizer will do for applying Insecticides such as sprays, but for larger houses a bucket pump, knapsack sprayer, or barrel pump Is desirable. A rather coarse spray should be applied from all angles, and driven thoroughly Into all the cracks. The floor also should be treated, as many mites fall to the floor when roosts are being removed. Commercial carbollneum, which con sists essentially of a high-grade an thracene oil, has proved very effective against mites. The killing power of this substance, which Is derived from coal tar, lasts for several months, and mites which may be Inclined to come In from other bnlldlngs are repelled for a long time. This material costs, ordinarily, $1 a gallon, but as Its re It 8praying Interior of Hen House for Mites. suits are superior to those recorded with any other material, and the treat ments required are fewer, its use Is MEN WANTED The Northern Pacific Railway Company will employ men at rates prescribed ' by the U.

Crude petroleum, while not so ef fective as carbollneum, retains its kill ing power for several weeks, and In most places Is very cheap. Since It does not dry Into the wood so rapidly It Is more Ukely to soli the fowls and the clothing. Both of these materials can be sprayed better If reduced with kerosene at the rate of about 1 part of kerosene to 3 parts of the other materials. Both often contain foreign particles which should be strained be fore the spraying Is begun. It has been found that one spray ing with either of these materials often will completely eradicate the mites, but ordinarily It Is advisable to make a second application In a month, and In some cases a third treat ment Is needed. Poultry should be kept out of the houses until the ma terial Is well dried into the wood. It is advisable to spray or paint chicken coops a few days before putting broods of young chicks Into them. AVOID CROWDING OF CHICKS Bad Practice With Fowls of All Agee, but Especially With Very Little Fellow* Avoid overcrowding. It Is bad practice with fowls of all ages, but especially with youngsters. Chicks wlt*h mother hens or In brooders often are crowded at night. When they get out in the morning most of them take cold and this often develops Into roup, which is usually fatal In the case of young chicks. BETTER TILLAGE FOR FARMS 8malt Acreage It More Profitable When Properly Cared for Than Large Tracts. A small farm well tilled will give better returns than a large acreage poorly cared for. If more farmers would learn this lesson, which the gardener learned long ago, we would have better farms and the owner would likely have more ready money.—LeRoy Cady, associate horticulturist, Univer sity Farm, St. Paul.
