- Give Dairy Cow a Chance.
Poor feeding and poor manage
ment tell the whole story of why the
dairy business is unprofitable with
some men. Give the cow a balanced
rat Inn nf nnlatahlfl feed. DlentV Of
good clean water to drink, provide
her with comfortable quarters, give
her kind treatment, and milk her
regularly; then if she does not pay,
send her to the butcher.
If you have cows, now is the time
to begin to prepare to keep and care
for them next winter.
Plan your crops to provide plenty
of feed Of the different kinds; then
harvest the crops In the way that
will make them most palatable.
Palatability is Just as essential as
quantity. Don't depend on buying
anything that you can produce on
your own farm. Take a census of
the cows you have and see how much
of the different feeds you will need.
If you have cows enough (10 cows)
to justify the use of a silo, you will
need 3 Mi tons of silage for each cow;
you will need at least 1 ton of
legume ' hay, either cow-pea, soy
bean, red clover or alfalfa, or lespe
deza where it can be grown for each
cow. For additional roughage, you
will need all the straw and stover
your cows will consume, with plenty
for bedding. For grain to feed along
with the roughages you will need 15
bushels of corn, per cow and then
you will need only to buy cottonseed
meal or bean meal enough to balance
the ration.
One and One-Half Pound Broilers.
Farmers will do well to not offer
broilers for sale until they have at
tained the weight of one and one
half pounds each. This weight can
be easily attained by properly feed
ing and housing, not crowding, and
by seeing that they get meat meal,
corn meal, and wheat shorts in equal
proportions, to which is added one
part rolled oats, or ground oats,
where it be not possible to get rolled
oats. This mixture kept before the
chickens at all times with waste
milk, and in addition a liberal sup
ply of fresh water, will stimulate
rapid growth and early maturity.
Great care should be exercised in
selecting broilers for market. . No
broilers allowed to leave the farm.

Monday, April 29. -NATIONAL
Where Labor is Scarce.
A careful examination of a large
number of records shows that farm
ers with the highest degree of di
versification and,, the least propor
tion of cotton acreage produce the
largest crop value per man. In fact
the diversified farms produced al
most twice as much value per man
as did the cotton farmers. At this
time, when labor, is scarce, this is a
thought that should influence farm
ers in deciding the crops to grow.
Farmers outside of the cotton ter
ritory should see that they do not
"go to seed" with some other crop
and so lose the benefits of diversifi
cation. DR. JAKE H. PARK
