Phone 462 Moson City, Iowa G/Ve lambs Rest and Hay at Start Two things that' will help get western feeder lambs off to a good start this fall are plenty of rest the first day and medium quality hay as a roughage starter, says W. F. LaGrange, animal husbandman at Iowa State college. Lambs will need to have water upon arrival and block salt should be put out after the lambs have been in the feedlot a few days. LaGrange recommends the block form because it will prevent the lambs from getting too much salt early in the feeding program. He says that vaccination against enterotoxemia or overeating disease is usually considered the safest procedure by livestock men who want to use self-feeder, cornfield feeding, or intend to feed a heavy grain r a t i on. Increased amounts of good legume hay may be substituted for the medium quality hay as soon as the lambs get over the effects of shipping. Starting rates for grain feeding vary from i to 1. pound per day. By hand feeding the gram ration can be increased gradually until the lambs are on full feed. LaGrange says that some lots of lambs will eat more grain when on full feed than others and that the feeder will need to watch the lambs to gauge the amount of grain to put out. He suggests a protein supplement such as linseed oilmeai or soybean oilmeal in the feed. When lambs are being fed legume hay, 1/10 pound of supplement per day is about the right amount for the ration. The lambs also need access to salt and to a mineral mixture. WEEDS GROUND WIRE Weeds that are allowed to grow up under an electric fence and touch the wire will ground out the fence and reduce its effectiveness, says Harold Beaty, extension agriculutral engineer at Iowa State college.
