"T O COWS FLY TO ITALY — Boarding a transport at La Guardia Field, in New York are cows and bulls destinec for Milan, Italy. The animals will help build up Italy's war- ravaged stock. Extra Profit in Harvesting Barley Right Complete ripening, proper threshing and careful handling jDf barley can mean extra profit "for Iowa farmers this year, E. S. Dyas, Iowa State college extension agronomist, said this week. Malting barley must meet special malting requirements to command a premium price. Grain classified as fancy malting barley must be thoroughly ripened, plump grain, with a moisture content of not over 12 to 14 per cent, according to Dyas. Also, the kernels must not be cracked, broken, skinned or frayed in threshing. Harvesting barley as soon as the crop is fully ripe helps avoid weather damage.' When combin- ing barley on extremely hot, dry afternoons, be sure the machine is adjusted properly to avoid cracking kernels. Do not combine malting barley when the crop is damp, Dyas warns. Where green weeds are mixed with the grain, it should be windrowed and cured before combining. Operating the cylinder at a slower speed will make for drier grain, too. Properly adjusting the thresher and guarding against weather damage, can bring good results in binder-thresher harvesting says Dyas. Feed barley bundles butt end first to reduce crack- age of kernels. Cylinder speed should be kept as low as possible in both combines and threshers and there should be no end play in cylinder bearings. Damp barley will heat in storage and produce an objectionable "musty" odor. Cut sudan grass for hay a any time after it is headed oir and up to the soft dough stage.

Even though it is normally a high-priced hog feed in comparison to corn, oats can prove extremely valuable for feeding swine this year, says E. L. Quaife, extension swine specialist at Iowa State college. Old sows will do very well when self-fed whole oats, with about one-third pound of -protein supplement added daily during the latter part of the pregnancy period, says Quaife. Gilts can be fed the same way, though they might need an ear or. 2 of corn daily, and should have the protein supplement throughout pregnancy. Hogs weighing around 100 pounds will make very satisfac- tory gains on ground soaked oats and good legume pasture. If additional gain - is wanted, meat meal may be added to the ration. However, it will be more expensive, says Quaife. When hogs are at some dis- tance from the water and dry feeding must be practiced, Quaife advises a mixture of } ground oats to i ground corn or wheat, with 10 pounds of protein supplement added to each 100 pounds of grain.
