NEWS-FEA7URES Suggestions For Better Fanning Featured For This Section 1 ! Progressive Farmers. Don't Overlook |ny Feed Source | Skim Milk Available ji On Many Farms Good I For Poultry Flocks '?With present feed shortages and lilgh feed cosls, it is necessary Ilia I Mississippi County poultry producers use every possible source of feed supplies, Miss Cora Lee Colc- man, county home demonstration agent, told farm people this week. Green feed can be produced on every farm. and sklni milk is available on many, she reminded. ^According lo Miss Coleman, sklni milk is an excellent poultry feet wjien fed lu clean containers, bit 1 extremely dangerous to the flock when fed carelessly and in filths surroundings. '^1 ilk, for best results, should In fed in containers that cnn be Iho roughly cleaned every day. A wood en trough or a large pan, becaust each is hard to clean, she explain oil, is usually a source of discasi and contamiualion. f'fwo sets of milk utensils may b used every oilier day with good 're stills. Miss Coleman added, as Ihl Will allow lime tor Ihe unused on lo; be cleaned and sunned befor use the net day."" rEither sweet or sour milk may be fe'3 as (Here Is ^ very little .difference in. the feeding value, but the same kind should be,.. fed all the lime, ; Miss Coleman recommended. KMilk'is most effective when ted a't : intervals during the day rather than when il is put before the flock \ all at one-time. When fed two or tfiee limes each day, Ihe milk is not exposed to flies and other con- lEmiinalion !and disease germs. Enough should be put out lhat hens will drink It In an hour or so. II •nb mash is fed, milk should be the • only drink given until loward evening, - 'For the hens lo get enough protein for'good production, one'gal- lon of milk daily should be provided for each 25 hens. Mi^s Coleman explained that if this nmcli skim milk is-available, good resells may be secured without feeding aiiy mush or by feeding llmtlcd amounts. When milk is - fed in place of njiash, a litlle heavier feeding of , grain is required, Ihe home demonstration agent snid.

MEAT AND MILK PRODUCTS When hoatilitcs cense, people of. nations now miller Axis domination will need legume and grass seed quickly lo liclp reestablish themselves. Shipping them seed is the most practical and cheapest way of providing lliem with food nnd lessens tbe drain on our own resources. Sixty pounds of nlfalt.1 seed shipped overseas nnd planted, for example, will provide about 10 tons of liny—enough for six cows during an entire winter—and replace about 10,000 pounds of feed grains. Since one acre of nlfalfa harvested /or seed will yield «|>- proximntely BO pounds, ibis acre of seed nclunlly can replace about 13,000 pounds of feed prains.

Hens That Are Light Producers ^j Should Be Eaten An appeal to Mississippi County farm families to use lhc loafers in Ihe poullry (lock as food for Ihe family table was Issued this week by Miss Cora Lee Coleman, county home demonstration agent. A chicken may look small beside a cow or sheep, she said, but the meal produced by chickens In the United Slates each year Is between four and five limes as much as the lamb and 'million produced an ( ] .one-third ns much us Hie lo- lal beef production. 'the fcod value of the chicken and other poultry Is enual to other meals in protein, and pound for pound, poultry meat has the sninu quality of prolcln as oilier meat Chicken giblets arc especially rlcl In Iron and vitamin A. Chlckei rates along with beef in Its thin- inin contenl. The dark meat con- lains more riboflavln and probabl> more iron than does Ihe while meal, Miss Coleman pointed out. In planning lhc ' family fooc supply, Miss Coleman recommend thai farm families plan to use on bird each week for the table am that nil birds be healthy, well fleshed specimens.

County farms should be tested for purity nnd gennlmilliis power, Keith J. nilbrcy, county agent, snlrt. Mixtures of cheat and oilier weeds In outs are oflen caused by seed containing high percentages of weed sect!. Knowing the germinating power cf seed Is Important to the former, because planting seed of low germinating power will result In pool- stands and require resettling.

Funnel's should Insist on testing nil seed they buy even though seed comes from a neighboring farm, the county agent declared, Weed seed and |M>nr seed coining from a nclgh- wrhig farm arc just as bad as though they come from n seed dealer. Farmers who are going to l>lt>nl or sell home-grown seed should also have their seed tested These tests are made without charge by the Arkansas State Plant Board seed laboratory, located at the University of Arkansas College of Ag rlculturc at Faycllcvillc, the county agent said. Oats and other small grain gi through n dormant or rest pcrloi after being harvested. This dormant condition will be broken naturally after several months, but In the seed laboratory It Is broken by chilling the Bcccl. Tf seeds arc to be sent to the laboratory, enough samples should be taken U> be representative of the entire lot of seed. If the seed is stored in bulk, a sample should be taken from several places In the bin. Some samples should be taken at a depth of six to eight Indies: some nt a third of the depth; some halfway down, and some near the bottom. A handful of seed is large enough for the sample. Each sample should be placed in a small sack or envelope and marked as."Sample 1." "Sample 2," etc. A record should be kept of each sample showing where it was taken. If the seed Is in bags, a sample should be taken from every fiftl bag or from every bag if the lot contains only a few sacks. The samples should be taken from the Ark-Mo Employees Grow Plenty Of Vegetables In Big Garden H's canning lime and local em- iloyees of Arkansas-Missouri Pow- r Company are ready.
