Live Stock Notes.
. Horses without fault or blcm*: ish are hard to find. The first essential to profitable stock feeding is a good animal. A scrub animal may yield a profit, but a good animal will \ give a better one. Occ[advantagc with early ma turity is that it enable* us to turn our money oftencr. No animal docs as well on one food as on a variety of food. For general driving purposes the good walker is the horse most needed. In a majority of cases a very quics grow in t»c comes a weak growth. Kvery animal rcjuirs a certain amount of feed called the ration of support to exist on. The older and heavier an ani* mal is the larger must be its ration of support. Sanitary measures arc those measures which make the farm more productive and profitable. A poor appetite in any farm animal is greatly against its doing best, no matter under wba* con ditions it is kept. As a rule properly fattened ani mals marketed the moment that further feeding would entail a k**s are always profitable. With plenty of exercise and the bowels kept open with a lax ative there is little risk in the sow eating her pigs at farrowing Kvcr\ animal has a constitu tional limit beyond which n<» process of feeding can force it to a greater production of useful ness. If a young animal is not given a chance to do its inst at the start you need not i • surprised if it disaoooints von tin- .

The successful men advertise. I Ratio of the Ration. The ratio of the ration refers to the relation between the di gestible protein and the digesti ble carbo-dyd rates in the given food. The grains fed should not compose more than one-half the digestible nutrients in the ration and should vary from that to nothing qn a full teed ot luxuri ant grasses. In general it is a safe rule to feed liberally of good, coarse feeds and to vary the grain feed to suit the require ments of the individual. From the results of our work we find a ratio from 1:5 to lsf* to give the best results in feeding dairy cows. Counting^thc yield and the cost of feeds this ratio is, all things considered, the cheapest, although prices on ni trogenous and carbonaceous feeds may be such as to favor for proms a narrower or a wider ra tio. In the corn growing sec tions. however, rations, as a rule, have been too wide and there is a tendency now toward a narrow er ration.
