When the war Is over, prices nf milk, cream, and butler will drop if history repeats itself, and the inefficient producers will be forced to ,-|iiit. 11 more Arkansas dairy farmers would adopt the following improved prncilces they would be In a much belter position for profitable I production in the postwar period. Dairy farmers should grow an abundance of high quality roughage, liouyhase (pasturage, liny, or silage) Is Hie cow's natural food. She must receive large quantities ul high qualities of ft, if she Is to !:ecp the digestive process working properly, cows will eat enough good quality roughage to produce, 75' per cent of their maximum milk yield on roughage alone. Another Important, fuel Is that roughage crops are a much cheaper source of feed nti- trlents than grain or other concentrated feed. Balance the herd with the feed supply, Keeping as many cows as are needed to consume all the good high quality roughage that can be produced will insure a maximum return from dairying. There Is no reason for keeping more cows than <-nn be provided with adequate amounts of good roughages. Good cows fed to capacity will usually produce more milk nt lower cost than a larger number O f cows poorly fed. Production records should be kept (.11 each cow. Cows differ greatly in I heir capacity to use feed for the production of milk. The quantity and richness of the milk each cow produces is the only reliable guide to (he amount of feed nutrients she needs to maintain her milk flow at a normal- level. Actual weights and tests of milk afford n satisfactory means of determining her average daily production. Labor saving practices should be adopted.
