Give Lambs Chance
To Bring
With the present prospects for
profits from sheep better than for
most other classes of Ohio livestock,
L. K. Bear, extension specialist in
animal husbandry, Ohio State Uni
versity, advises farmers to make
sure lambs get a good start and
keep growing.
Good milking ewes are the best
insurance of a profitable lamb crop.
A grain mixture for ewes getting
legume hay can be made up from
three parts corn, three parts oats,
and one part of oilmeal cake or of
whole or split soybeans. Ewes not
getting legume hay should have two
parts each of com and oats to one
part of either oilmeal cake or soy
Lambs should get both hay and
grain in creep feeders as soon as
they will eat them, and that is
earlier than most farmers think pos
sible. Leafy hay, coarsely cracked
corn, and bran tempt very young
lambs. Whole grains should be used
when the lambs eat freely in the
creep. Mr. Bear recommends five
parts oats, three parts corn, one
part bran, and one part of a protein
Thrifty lambs go on pasture much
better equipped to resist inroads of
internal parasites and will reach
market age before parasites cause
much damage. However, treatments
for parasite control in the flock
should not be neglected.
Paralysis of ewes at lambing time
appears to be susceptible to treat
ment with ordinary molasses. Half
a drinking glass of molasses, four
ounces, brings relief to ewes already
affected, and two ounces of molasses
fed daily to the other ewes may
prevent further trouble.
Along with other ways of helping
insure profits from sheep this year,
Mr. Bear advises care in shearing
and in handling the fleeces. Buyers
are more particular about dirt, chaff,
and burrs in wool when prices are
up, and they never like fleeces tied
with twine which leaves trouble
making fibers in the wool. Paper
twine should be used to tie fleeces.
Monday through hatching season. Bring us your eggs for custom
hatching on Tuesdays.
Coal Oil or Electric Brooders, Feed and Poultry Supplies.
An acre of good pasture used by
spring pigs from weaning time until
they are ready for market should
save from 800 to 1,000 pounds of
corn plus 500 pounds of tankage.
An acre of legume pasture will
carry 15 pigs.
