dairy ration—Cost of feed per ton,

The above table was compiled by
the County Agent thru the request
of one of our cow testing associa
tions. Now that the winter season
is close upon us most of our farm
ers are figuring on the best and
cheapest ration for their dairy
herd. Due to the high prices of
all our feeds it probably never was
more important that the feeder get
down to rock bottom on his ration
and secure the greatest feeding
value for his money. A car load of
new corn was purchased in the
community this week at $1.36 per
bushel. At this price it would seem
that a major portion of the dairy
ration should be made up of
ground corn and cob. Corn is the
most palatable and nutritious feeds
on the market and according to the
table, the cheapest source of car
bohydrates that we know. The
price of corn will probably go
higher but according to the table
there is no feed that comes near
furnishing carbohydrates as
cheaply, hence corn can make a
considerable raise and still be a
practical feed. True corn has to
be ground before it is fed but if
commençai feeds are fed instead,
the corn must be hauled to the
farm which would probably pay
for the grinding of the corn.
But corn in itself is not a bal
anced ration and ncessitates a
portein feed, fed in' conjunction.
According to the table cotton seed
meal at $60 per ton is the cheapest
protein feed on the market. You
will note that cotton seed meal
furnishes protein for nearly one
dollar cheaper per hundred pounds
than a,ny of the commençai feeds
listed. Cotton seed meal costs as
much per ton as many of our com
mercial feeds but it contains near
ly twice as much protein as any
feed listed. It is interesting to
note the fibre content of corn and
■of meal and cotton seed meal as
compared with the fibre content of
the commençai feeds,
table shows the fibre content of the
average commercial feed is about
twice that of corn and cob meal
and cotton seed meal.
A home mixed dairy ration made
up of a mixture of corn and cob
meal with cotton seed meal, light
ened up perhaps with some bran

to add palability is a ration which
is exceedingly palatable and I be
lieve a ration which will furnish
the greatest feeding value for the
least money. The use of commer
cial feeds is not to be entirely
discouraged. No doubt there are
times when the feeding of com
mercial feeds are to be recom
mend and at the present time, if a
farmer has used a brand which has
given satisfaction, it may be used
profitably in conjunction with the
feeding value and price of corn
and cotton seed meal is considered,
it does not seem feasible to feed
a total ration of the commercial
feeds. In considering the home
mixed ration we are safe in figur
ing that the labor cost of mixing
will not exceed $1.00 per ton.
Piactically all of our local deal
ers have cotton seed meal bran in
stock at all times and are always
glad to handle it for a reasonable
