How to Handle the Colt When the Mare la Put to Work and How to Feed Mare for Best Results. I have a nice mare that la with foal. She will bring colt about the middle of May. Can 1 continue to work her up to time for her to bring colt, and how long will it be after she has colt before I can work her? How often would it be necessary for colt to suck during day? We go to work about t> in the morn ing. stop at 12 o’clock, go to work at 1:30, stop at sunset. Would It be best to let colt fol low mare in Held, or keep at home in good cool stable, or let It run In nice large yard? H. C. W. Editorial Answer.—This mare may be worked right up to the time of foaling without injury to herself of the colt, if she is handled with good judgment. She should not be required to go out of a walk nor should be pulled hard on a heavy load. It also goes without saying that she should not be worked so bsrd at anything as to unduly tire her. if by work, heat, or other cause, she becomes exhausted. Injury may be done. She should have at least two weeks’* rest after foaling. If she does well, possibly a week or ten days would be sufficient in so far as the mare is concerned, but iu justice to the colt at least two weeks' rest should be given. The digestive functlous of the colt are easily disordered, and it the mare be put to work the flow of milk will not be so regular, either In quantity or quality, and conse quently bowel troubles are more likely to result In the young colt. The question as to whether the colt should follow the mare or be confined to the stable Is a difficult one to answer without all the facts involved in the case. As a general rule, it Is best to keep the colt con fined while the mother Is at work. Is I . I — * .v tk.. Id IV 10 H OO UUUUIV vv V VMV " “W working the mare and better for the colt, but one opportunity to suck be tween tf o’clock in the morning and sunset Is not enough for a young colt. Unless the mare Is working a long distance from the stable, she should be taken to the barn in the middle of the forenoon and afternoon and the colt allowed to suck, until the colt Is at least six weeks or two months old. If this is not done the mare's udder will be full of an abundant supply of milk when she goes Into the stable at noon and ulght, and the hungry colt will take too much, Indigestion will follow, and If the colt does not take sick and die, It Is not likely to do so well at the best. A colt nurses often when at liber ty to do so, and the change to such long Intervals between nursing must be made gradually and slowly. If convenient, the coll should be removed from the mother for two or three days before the mare Is put to work and allowed to nurse say twice during the forenoon and twice dur ing the afternoon; then when work begins, once In the middle of the forenoon and afternoon, will not be such a sudden change. If the mare be a good milker, It will be best to milk out part of the supply before the colt is allowed to suckle, In order that he does not get too much. The danger is not from the colt getting insufficient milk, but from getting too large a quantity at one time. When the colt is left at the stable great care must be taken to con fine him where he can not possibly get out or hurt himself. The best place is a box stall with solid walls and without any manger or other place in which he can get his feet fastened, or injure himself in any way. A lot in which there is shade would be all right, providing it was surrounded by a high, tight board fence. Unless such a lot is available, a stall is better because the dan ger of injury is less. Many a colt is injured or killed in his frantic efforts to get with his mother when first confined. After a week or two both mother and foal will become accus tomed to the separation, and then all trouble will be over. After the colt Is six weeks to two months old, if the change be gradu ally made, it may be safe to keep the mare from him all the forenoon or afternoon, because by that time he will have begun to eat oats, wheat bran and peavine hay, or to eat some green grass. It is best to teach the colt to eat just as early as possible because it increases his growth and makes the weaning operation less of a shock. Corn and corn fodder are not sat isfactory feeds for a mare In foal nor for one suckling a colt. These feeds do not contain enough bone and flesh-forming materials, nor suf ficient of the elements needed to pro duce milk. If oats or peavine hay are not available, we suggest one pound of cottonseed meal a day until the colt is three weeks old, and then that two pounds a day be given in stead of double that weight of corn now being fed. Feeding Soy Beans to Hogs. Please tell me If soy beans will make a good feed to mix with other feeds to cook for hogs. O. W. H. Editorial Answer.—Soy beans will make an excellent feed to mix with other feeds for bogs. Some difficulty may at first be experienced in get ting the hogs to eat them well, but mixed with corn or other feeds they will soon learn, to eat them, even If at first they do not relish them as well as feeds usually used. Soy beans are rich in protein, as the following comparison of several feeds will show: DIGESTIBLE NUTRIENTS IN 100 POUNDS. Protein Carbohydrate* Fate Soy Bean*. 29 6 11m. 22-8 lb*. I«.4lb* Corn . 7.91b*. 66.711m. 4.31b* Short*... 18.81b*. 13.0 lb*. 3 41b* Kir* Polish- 9.01b*. £6-4 lb*. 6.51b* C.S. M**l .... 37.81b*. 16911m. 12.21b* Probably the protein (digestible) of cottonseed meal will not now aver age above 33.6 pounds in 100 pound! and the oil probably not above 8 oi 9 pounds in a hundred. These changes from the old standard ar« due to better methods of the oil mills which extract more oil, and the ad mixture of hulls with the meal, which lowers the protein content. Probably the best way to feed soj beans to hogs Is to turn the hogs on them shortly before they mature and feed a little corn—only a little, saj one-fifth or one-fourth of an ordi nary ration. it usually does not pay to cook feed for live stock. If the feeds are at all Increased in value, this increase Is not sufficient to pay for the cost ol cooking. ■ //■I U |\|i 1 JIl] I IMPORTANT TO I I CREAM SEPARATOR!
