\ : " - ""^•~:. 1 - j.y>" *-«i!r' •• v^'-Hf**? 1 ^ >Wi Growing pullets on range need a lot of close attention. Check your waterers often to make sure they are operating properly. Start out with good, lush grass and then keep the weeds controlled and mature grass clipped to provide best range conditions. You'll want to keep a close watch for predatory animals too. Unless you continually watch for these, you may find up to 30% or more of your pullets missing at housing time. Losses like this can trim your profit prospects fast. Get your pullets housed early. If you see a few eggs around the growing area, you'll find that housing the pullets immediately will save time and money. This is a good time to cull your pullet flock too. The modern laying bird, if grown correctly, should have almost no culls at housing time. But if any of your pullets are not vigorous, well-matured and ready to produce, get rid of them. Before placing your new pullets in the laying house make sure it is thoroughly cleaned. Don't give old disease organisms an opportunity to infect your new pullets. Clean, scrub and repair the house, clean up all equipment and give the new pullefs a new home to really be proud of. It takes top quality chicks, grown and managed under the best of conditions, to develop into high-producing, profitable layers. On most farms this phase of the production program is often neglected. But it's just as important, if not more so, to concentrate your efforts on the brooder house and growing chicks than on any other part of your egg production program. Select a good growing program and stick with it. Your hatcheryman and feed dealer can provide you with a lot of good suggestions and basic information to help you do a better job. •ETERS POWER "...gefs tough with turkeys' 9 GENUINE « .ray.r Walter Jungmayer, Rancher, Myakka City, Florida "Every »hot counts when the turkey season is open down here in Florida.
