Study your production records critically and size up each cow. April through June is generally the best time of year for a dairyman to cull his herd. This is just before and during the early stages of the grazing period. At this time of year marketings are light and prices high. Whether you raise heifers or purchase your herd replacements, it is important for them to be healthy and from proven parents. A heifer's first year of pVoduction is a good indication of her performance in later years. Most heifers during their first year will usually produce 70% of what they are capable of averaging in the future, Improvement within a dairy herd is possible only through continual selection and culling, Pictured are five genera* tions of Guernsey** The owner, through careful selection, breeding and culling, has built up a family with high inherent milk producing capacity. * A « 5/755 Farmers from 37 States and Canada report yields which average 114.29 bushels per acre.* w^¥ii '^tl a «*.'!J ^v^ls%lSf&eKSW^20th Contest year, iMqre- than v ,.. „ . - - ,^ ri „ •^«iw^Atf^ap^ f ^ elr amazing 2 °-^ ar y ield ^T er ^-%;sn%i^ ^mmr^^^^^r^t of DeKalb-s grea^HeUd^;^^^ ^^S%V^^I^ ? i^4^r^^ -'"' : !
