Recent trials showed that Terramycm added to tegular dairy feeds increased mflk production. The increase was enough— (0.87 Ib. per «ow per day average)— to pay ofl the costal the Terramycm . . - and return a. net profit of over $5 per cow during the 186-day feeding trials, based on a market price of $5 per cwt. for the milk. You can now get these extra-production benefits of Terramycin two ways: Use a dairy feed fortified with Tterramycin . . . and feed it daily •throughout the miHring period so as to provide 75 rug. of Terramycin per cow dafly. Or, if you prefer to get Terramycin benefits without chang- ing your regular feeding program- just supplement your feeding with new Terramycin A/D Fortified Crumbles. You'll get all the benefits of Terramycin... plus extra fortification with vitamins A and D, too, to help keep herd health at a peak. Terramycin is the world-famous antibiotic disease-fighter used to reduce incidence and severity of bloat and to fight scours in dairy cows. You get all three—Terramycm, vitamin A, vitamin D—when you buy Terramycin A/D Fortified Crumbles. The 17 feeding trials were conducted on commercial dairy farms in six eastern and midwestern states. 2,370 lactating cows were used— mostly Holsteins, but Guernseys, Jerseys and crossbreeds were also included. Milk samples taken from several test herds indicated no antibiotic carry-over in the milk or cheese. See your feed supplier soon. And ask about new Terramycin A/D Fortified Crumbles. Ptize, Chan.

A strong wind can cause a spray to drift, resulting in 'a poor band. At the same time, an improperly adjusted band distributor will not give good results either. When using these chemicals, be sure to do the job exactly as the label states. Accuracy is extremely important for desired results. Whenever you have reason to expect serious grub infestations, it's a good idea to increase soil insecticide applications to three pounds of aldrin or heptachlor per acre. A smaller rate of from one to 1& pounds of insecticide will kill only small grubs. Grubs will most commonly be found in fields that have been in sod for several years before going to corn.
