Bluffton had scored one touchdown
and drove deep to Ada’s two-yard
line late in the closing minutes, Ada
deliberately grounded the pigskin in
the end zone. This gave Bluffton a
safety and two more points, but it
also gave Ada a chance to get the
ball out of the danger zone.

No Need To Increase
Cows In Dairy Herds
Although the consumption of dairy
products has been increasing recent
ly, that improvement does not neces
sarily mean that more dairy cows
are needed, according to Ivan Mc
Kellip, animal husbandry specialist,
Ohio State University.
Mr. McKellip, animal husbandry
specialist, Ohio State University.
Mr. McKellip says reports on cat
tle prove that more heifer calves are
being kept for herd replacements,
but he believes it would be more
practical for dairymen to increase
the efficiency of cows already ovfned
than to enlarge their herds,
theory is supported by the actiok of
Ohio dairymen who have brought
enrollment in herd improvement
sociations to record numbers.
There are 59 associations in
state now, as compared with 36 in
1936. These numbers are getting ac
curate production records on 20,027
cows during a location period.
These continuous records are need
ed because some cows produce well
for short periods but fail to maintain
this good start. Members of the as
sociation, in August, sold 221 cows
which were unprofitable
and also sold 108 cows
other dairy herds.
Even the best cows do
their maximum unless
enough good feeds,
points out that feed grains and hay
are plentiful enough to remove any
excuse for underfeeding dairy herds.
Beef prices now are favorable for
culling of dairy herds. Mr. McKellip
thinks that dairymen who delay cull
ing their herds because they believe
beef prices may go still higher are
running a double risk. Extra ex
pense is incurred in keeping
animal and the price of beef
decline instead of rise.
Another point suggested by
University specialist to keep up herd
production is to repair stables before
the cows must be housed. Milk pro
duction is influenced by temperature
variations, and drafty stables permit
weather changes to affect the dairy
Unusual lack of rainfall over most
of Ohio has delayed fitting ground
for wheat and may considerably
affect the acreage sown to this crop
