In selecting folrthduy and Christmas
gifts for children In rural communi
ties, why not give a purebred pig, calf;
or dcner animal? Tills is the sugges
tion pf the United States Department
of Agriculture, which, with the various
states, is conducting the "Better Sires
—Better Stock" campaign. A recent
questionnaire study of the utility value
of purebred live stock showed, among
other results, that home influence is
■ • - — ------• - -
an important factor governing the
breeding of superior domestic animals.
In fact, it ranks in importance next
to sales, fairs, and shows, taken col
lectively. When parents show their In
terest in good stock the children are
more likely to do so.
One breeder told of receiving some
purebred live stock as a wedding gift
from Ms father-in-law. That begin
ning was an important Influence, which
resulted In an entire herd of well-bred.

Common Sense Counts
Success in the dairy business
or In keeping even a small herd
of dairy cows depends (like most
things do) in a great measure
upon the use of good common
sense. Cows produce the most
milk usually in the latter part
of May and June. Therefore,
what does the wise dairy farmer
do? He maintains ns nearly ns
possible the year round, the con
ditions of those months when
production is the highest.
Palatable food, a succulent
ration, and a balanced ration,
together with a moderate tem
perature and comfortable sur
roundings, will bring as near the
ideal producingaconditions as is
possible, and an effort to keep
conditions so will pay big re
rcrn nov mw nu Dniicuior
Daily Allowance of Bran or Oats la
Favored—Cabbage and Pumpkine
Are Very Good.
. During the eight or ten weeks that
cows go dry, their food should be
chiefly roughage. A daily allowance
of two pounds of bran or oats, or a
mixture of two parts each of bran
and oats and one part of linseed meal
or corn-oil meal makes a proper feed
for a cow hear calving. Some roots,
cabbage, pumpkins, or squashes are
also Very good. Highly carbonaceous
roughage, such as straw and corn
stalks, Is not good at this particular
time. Such feeds, wRh cold water,
cold drafts, or lying out at night on
•damp or frozen ground, are the chief
causes of caked udder or garget.
