Ark., May 7.— ' A study of the cost of dehydrating sweet potatoes for livestock feed, conducted by the University of Arkansas Bureau of Research in Its Dehydration Pilot Plant at Jonesboro, has just been published, Dr. C. O. Bramien, Bureau director, has announced. The study, which was conducted by B. H. Mewls and W. S. Far- ils, includes, in addition to cost information, detailed analyses revealing the effects of different methods of handling dehydrated sweet potato meal, and also market outlets. : , The cost of dehydrating totaled 40.90 per dry ton, which Includes depreciation, interest on Investment, fuel, power, labor, and maintenance. Labor costs, calculated :<t 60 cents an hour for three employees, total $5.58 per dry ton. The cost figures are based on seven trial runs marie In the fall of 1940 during which 42,000 pounds of raw potatoes were processed. All Sizes Used Using a dehydrator similar to seventeen other "farm-sized" plants in the state, raw potatoes were dehydrated at rates of ranging from 1,763 pounds to 2.396 pounds per hour. The lowest rale of feed into the dehydrator was obtained with jumbo potatoes ranging up to G Inches in diameter. No difficulty _ was encountered In dehydrating j "strings," which were about one inch In diameter and as much as 14 Inches long. About 3 pounds of raw potatoes were required to produce one pound of dehydrated meal. No significant rehydration occurred under normal storage conditions. The gain in weight of 100- pound sticks of sweet potato meal, dehydrated to a moisture content of 7 to 8 per cent, ranged from zero to 2 pounds at the end of 4 weeks' storage. No appreciable change was iound at the end of 7 months.

Meal May Be Sold Dehydrated sweet potatoes being produced for sale may be fed locally unmixed or sold to feed mills as a source of carbohydrate In mixed feeds. In either case, the sweet potato meal will probably follow the same method of marketing as shelled corn. Some feed mills have established specifications and are purchasing sweet potato meal in carload lots paying approximately the same price as the market price for corn. This year the Bureau. In cooperation with Arkansas State College, is conducting a study on dehydration of forage crops, Including oats, Winter legumes, Sudan grass, lespedeia and soybeans.
