FACTS mm APPLE-PECTIN AS COW FEED Pulp Should Prove Valuable Adjunct to Fare of Animal When Com pared With Silage. (prepared bjr the United States Department of Agriculture,) That dried apple-pectin pulp should prove a valuable adjunct to the fare of the dairy cow fs the conclusion drawn from analyses and feeding trials conducted by the bureau of chemistry United States Department of AgrlcuF tare. In collaboration with the Bureau of Animal Industry. This feed made a favorable showing when compared with dried beet pulp and corn silage. Apple-pectin pulp Is the by-product remaining after pectin has been ex tracted from apple pomace, or, as It Is sometimes called, cider-press cake After the pectin has been extracted about three-fourths of the total weight of the pulp Is water, rendering It sub ject to rapid spoilage. Heretofore it has been thrown away, but It has been found that when the pulp Is dried It can be kept for a considerable time and, because of Its reduced weight, handled and shipped economically. Some manufacturers have recently In stalled evaporators for drying the pulp In order to market the product for stock feed. The feeding experiment Included a preliminary test with one cow for a period of 20 days, and a later on« with 6 cows. The dried pectin pulp was always mixed with three times Its weight of water several hours before feeding. In the first test the cow was fed corn silage for 20 days, then, after a transition period of 5 days, she was given pectin pulp for 20 days, and, after another transition period of 5 days, she was fed corn silage for an other 20 days. In all these periods grain was fed In connection with the roughage. The average production during the corn-silage feeding-periods was 312 pounds of milk and 14.65 pounds of butterfat. During the period when 1 ' 1 A ■ -•v»- -, 'A % Ml : : S' : ■ «HÜ? > ■ ■■ Sïÿs ■ ; ■ , - A Convenient Arrangement for Feed ing Cows Which Saves Much Labor. pectin pulp was fed the cow made 356.9 pounds of milk and 15.68 pounds of fat Although this test showed that the pulp produced 14.7 per cent more milk and 7.1 per cent more but terfat than the com silage, the re sults can not be considered conclusive In the second and more extended ex periment the pectin pulp was com pared with dried beet pulp, a feed that It resembles more closely than com silage. The 6 cows were fed for 30 days on beet pulp soaked with three times Its weight of water, then, after a transition period of 10 days, they were fed for 30 days on pectin pulp soaked with a similar quantity of water. The soaking was from one feeding time to the next, but In warm weather the pulp should not be allowed to soak for more than one or two hours. The pectin pulp contained approximately 7 per cent crade fat (not all of which Is true fat), 7 per cent crade protein, and 26 per cent crude fiber, as compared with 0.5 per cent crude fat, 8 per cent crude pro tein, and 20 per cent crude fiber in beet pulp. The two feeds are similar In being able to absorb water readily. The cows while on the ration con taining the beet pulp produced 4976J5 pounds of .milk and 171.86 pounds of butterfat ; while on the pectin-palp ra tion they produced 4376.7 pounds of milk and 152.93 pounds of fat Forty pounds of the wet pulp were offered to each cow dally. The palatablllty of the pectin pulp did not appear to be so high as that of the beet pulp, since the cows did not eat It bo readily. It seems that pound for pound of dry matter the pectin pulp Is superior to corn silage and perhaps Intermediate between the silage and beet pulp. The loss of nppetlte for the pectin pulp by some of the cows may be at tributed to the fact that It was the less familiar feed and that the second test was conducted during the summer when cows are morfe apt to tire of Buch feeds.

This connec tion between the hare and Easter orig inates in the hare's connection with the moon, of which the hare has been from ancient times a symbol, together with the fact that Easter Is to a cer tain extent a tunar holiday. A few of the reasons of the hare being Identi fied with the moon are: The hare Is a nocturnal animal and comes out Rt night to feed. The ffemale carries her young for a month. believed to have the power of was Hare and moon were changing their sex ; the new moon masculine, the waning moon was femi nine.
