I Wet beet pulp and corn silage ! make excellent supplements to the lamb-fattening ration because they are bulky, succulent and palatable, and because of their partial grain equivalent value, says E. J. Hay* nard, associate animal husband man at the Colorado Agricultural j college. In adding variety to the ration i and in reducing the amount of grain necessary for finishing the lambs, these feeds often show a i value greater than their actual i grain-replacement estimate, it is emphasized. “Dried molasses beet pulp in re cent years has come into farther wide use as whole or partial sub stitute for grain where lambs have gone off feed,’ ” Maynard adds. “As this beet by-product concen trate has several natural attributes in its bulky nature, its palatabilit.v ; and fattening value, it is often | wise to include it as part of the : grain mixture fed in the dry ra ! tion for lambs when wet pulp or . other succulent feed is not avail ; able. “An average ol four tests con i ducted at the- Agricultural college indicates that the >iibstitution ot dried molasses beet pulp for one half the corn fed will slightly de crease hay consumption, decrease cost of gains at present prices and slightly increase gains. "It is a well recognized fact that ; iambs once 'off feed’ on account of ; too heavy a grain ration can rare j ly be brought back to a full feed !of barley or corn. Since no two | bunches of lambs can be expected to lakK the same amount of grain t on a full feed it is often a delicate ' matter to raise lambs to a full feed | of straight grain and hold them tnere. "When lambs go ‘off feed’ the cost of fattening them of course increases because time is lost and digestive disturbances naturally cut down the efficiency with which they handle their ration. Then, too. there may be some death loss ex perienced in connection with the disturbance. “With these facts in mind the importance of keeping lambs ‘on feed’ is evident and any feed that can be used in the fattening ra tion to safeguard them against go ing ‘off feed’should have additional merit in connection with its actual fattening value.” Right Mineral Mixture in Swine Feeding Lot The veteran experimental feed er at the lowa experimental sta tion, John M. Eward, has the fol .lowing to say about a simple min eral mixture for pigs: “It is surprising how well a sim pie mineral mixture will usually respond in the swine feeding lot It is surprising that even common salt may give results that are greatly superior to those obtained where no salt is fed. A simple mixture of salt and wood ashes often yields wonderfully good re sults. Os course when we use salt and wood ashes we have a mix ture that carries a number of es sential nutritional elements, chief among which are calcium, potas sium, sodium, phosphorus and mag nesium. “A very good, simple ‘backbone’ mixture which carries the out standing and main deficiency ele ments such as are needed to bal ance up our ordinary feeds may be made up per hundred pounds as follows: Hard wood ashes. 60 pounds; spent bone black or bone charcoal, 25 pounds; common salt, 15 pounds; potassium iodide, 0.02 pounds (two one-hundredths or one-fiftieth of one pound.)” Emergency Pasture for Swine Is Much Favored An emergency pasture mixture which will give good results for pasturing pigs is made of a mix ture of rape, oats and clover, ac cording to W. E. Carroll. Univer sity of Illinois. The oats are the first to start and if they are not pastured too heavily will supply feed for some time. The rape is next to reach the grazing stage and will protect the young clover until it is ready to pasture. Sudan grass last summer pro vided a good emergency pasture crop, he reports. It is rank grow ing but seems palatable for pigs if it is not allowed to get too great a start. With the possibility that clover will be winter killed in many sec tions of the state it is likely that some kind of emergency pasture crop may be needed in 1931, he states. Put Cattle on Pasture and Full Grain Ration Cattle that have been wintered on hay and silage, or other rations not containing much grain, and that can be put on pasture and a full grain ration at approximately the same time, should make the transition from hay to grass rath er easily and with no break in gains. Baby beeves, cattle approx imately a year old at grass time, have the greatest difficulty in mak ing satisfactory gains during the first month or two on pasture. The older the cattle, the better they can make the change and util ize grass in making fat beef. “Short yearlings,” when bought the fall before, make a more profitable use of pasture while on feed than younger stuff.
