That tiny tractor being displayed by Virginia Venneson, Detroit.
is a scale plastic model of its big brother. the Ford Tractor. More
than 1.000 of the models are daily rolling from a miniature production
line in Detroit. First used by dealers to pomt out the features of the
product when the real thing was unavailable due to shortages. the
models caught the popular fancy. Today model manufacturing is big
business, not only in tractors but in automobiles and other products.
The model Ford tractor follows faithfully the vermillion red and
forest gray color'scheme of the big tractor; the body is of plastic.
the axles of steel. the tires of real rubber.

Artificial Breeding is
Sligvying _Goqd Results.
While dairy farmers are hav-‘
ing trouble finding proved sires
that can raise or even maintain
high production records. artificial‘
breeding sires are having the best‘
results among the 3.820 buus'
proved this year, Frank Webster,‘
Benton County Extension agent,
reports. ‘
Dairy specialists of the U. 8.,
Department of Agriculture say‘
that as herd improvement moves‘
forward more than half of the.
sires lowered rather than raised
production. Of the 1.840 able to
maintain or increase production.
426 were used in artificial breed
ing units. And of the 426,308 or
nearly three-fourths of the sires
in artificial breeding were able
to maintain or increases produc
tion. 1
The report also shows that sires
in artificial breeding units raised
the production of daughters of low
producing dams more than the
average and were able to main
tain the production of daughters
of high producing dents better
’than were the average bulls to do.
