SYSTEM OF BROODING
Temperature Is Most mportant
Factor to Consider.
Flireless" Brooder is Easiest to Con
struct and Operate-Nothing to
Get Out of Order and No
Danger of Fire.
(By CHIARLEH SIER.OCK )
The most important Lactor to take
into consideration, no matter what
system of brooding is used, is the
temperature. Even though everything
else is favorable to the health of the
chicks, faulty temperature will ruin
the chick's health.
It is not the cold that affects the
chicks so much as it is the fact that
when they are cold they have not a
place to go to get warm again. They
soon learn that by crowding together
they can become warm from the heat
given off by their bodies. Those in
the center of such "crowds" are warm

per- pushing and crowding antil they tramp
the the weaker ones to death.
red This is disastrous to the poultry
ow man, not only because of the deaths
let caused, but those who do live are
rt deprived of their sleep. They are
compelled to stand and there is not
a chicken on earth that can sleep when
standing. Sleep is as essential to a
baby chick as it is to a baby. There
fore you can see the importance of
keeping the temperature right. Ev
erything depends upon it. When the
chicks are first transferred from the
incunbator to the brooder the temper
ature should be the same as it was
in the incubator, say from 95 to 100
During the first week do not let it
drop below 96 degrees, and during the
second week, below 90 degrees and so
on until the chicks no longer require
artificial heat. Do not allow the
chicks to become uncomfortable. It
does not pay.
There are many successful brooders
in use today, but all of them will not
suit all of the people. You must de
termine on the one that you think you 1
will like best and make that the one
you will use altogether. Brooders

BONEMEAL GOOD FOR SWINE
Test Made at Nebraska Station With
Four Lots of PigpThose on Corn
Made Good Gains.
All kinds of bonemeal are need in
the manufacture of fertilizers, but
not all kinds are suitable as feed for
swine. Bonemeal from a glue factory
which has gone through the process
in which acid was used is not suitable
feed. But any bonemeal. especially
green bone, that is ground finely
enough, may ,be fed. Steamed bone
meal is good.
At the M ssouri station bonemeal
was fed with very good results. About
an ounce of meal was fed to each hog
At the Nebraska station four lots of
pigs were fed to determine the value
of wheat shorts, tankage and steamed
ground bone as supplemental to corn
meal. The hogs were pastured on al*
falfa, and for this reason the lot fed
on corn alone made about as satisfa
tory gain as any, although the lot
which was fed bonemeal in addition
to the corn had the strongest bone.
Shorts strengthen the bone some.
and tankage with corn produced much
stronger bone than corn alone. Where
mixed grain rations are given, or skim
milk or good pasture, all of which sup

bonemeal is of much value other than
for the purpose of strengthening the
