EQUIPMENT CHECK Hove you planned few at least Mi square foot of floor space for each chick? Have you placed two 2-foot feed troughs or one round hanging feeder for each 100 chicks? If you are buying new equipment, hanging feeders are best.,They take less floor / space, need filling less often, can easily be raised as chicks grow. Each 100 chicks also should have two 3 to 5 gallon Water founts. FEEDING CHECK Do you start the chicles off with feeders full, and perhaps some more on egg flats or paper? Then, as soon as they'are eating well, do you fill feeders only % full to prevent feed waste? Finally, do you keep top lips of feeder* even with backs of the pullets as they grow? A feed company ran a check on these points, found that failure to follow them will result in wastage of about 20% of the feed. GROWTH CHECK Do you feed the best starter available in. your community? The best usually is the most economical, because it makes such fast growth. And better livqbility, too. Two pounds is all it takes to turn a little chick into a fully- feathered 5 week-old pullet as shown in the picture. Then only 5 to 7 pounds of a good supplement, and your grain, will develop a big, hardy bird ready to lay. It pays to allow a good granite grit whenever you feed whole grain. Experiments at Iowa State College show the very slight cost it paid back with faster growth and more eggt in the laying house, Build YIELD-POWER equal to inches more of good topsoil Three bags of Blenn per acre are equal to the available nutrients in about one inch of good topspil over the same area. So make your land as productive as you want it Good corn land is rich in available nutrients and the same nutrients are found in Blenn. Aim for higher corn yields... it's better than more acres. Blenn is made especially for corn and other grams in this 'area—for local soils and conditions. It supplements the natural nutrients in your aofl, so that your crop has every element needed for highest production. And Blenn is made by Swift's exclusive FLO-FumoN process which packs each par- tide with fertility . .. assures balanced feeding of every plant. Now build your income by building the Yield-Power of your soil.. . use Blenn this year. Swift's new FLO-FUSION process packs each particle of plant food with supercharged Yield-Power i Hiffh-qualJVy liquid plant foods am injected into dry materials in a revolving FLO-FUSION processing chamber at Swift's Plants. Millions of individual chemical reactions convert raw materials into chemically-hitched plant food, drying the particles as they are formed. Only Swift makes plant food by the FLO-FUSION process.
