FARM, JULY, 1948 8,400 ] ozen earlu tor ^rrc Handle and Store Farm Tools Safely Iowa farmers who have not yet turned completely to chemical weed killers can save themselves some nasty cuts and gashes by taking proper precautions in handling their tools while cutting weeds this season. Norval Wardle, extension farm safety specialist at Iowa State college, recommends carrying cutting tools with the blade or point facing down. Scythes and sickles should be put away immediately after use. Hang or store them where they cannot be bumped into, tripped on or fallen over. Wardle recommends that hatchets and axes be swung with a short back stroke, keeping the eye on the point where you want to strike. Don't use an axe or a hatchet as a hammer. Care should be taken with garden tools also. Always set the rake, hoe, spade or fork with the blades or points down before leaving them. Replace split or broken garden tool handles and tape rough, splintered ones. Use first aid treatment on any wound no matter how slight it seems. Repeat Plantings of Some Vegetables To keep your garden producing fresh, crisp lettuce and radishes, as well as carrots, spinach and other quick-growing vegetables, keep planting them at intervals during the season. Ed Cott, extension horticulturist at Iowa State college, says that plantings should be made regularly to insure a continual sup- Don't have a single lagging pig on your farm this season. Get those pigs to market 30 or more days sooner and save all those extra feeding days. Push every pig along by supplementing your grain and pasture with Tyden Pig Meal . . . and watch how your pigs and profits will grow. Tyden Feed & Livestock Co. DOUGHERTY, IOWA It takes 700 dozen eggs a month to feed the people living in the Odd Fellows homes. That's 8,400 dozen a year or 58,800 eggs. It's the job of Henry Ringlcr, who calls Missouri Valley his home, to see that they are available. Right now he has only 200 laying hens to help provide them but there are 300 pullets who will tackle the job soon. There are 500 cockerels to care for also. "But we'll get 250 or 300 more pretty soon," Supt. Delahoyde said. "We'll feed them until they are big enough and then freeze them. "Some people wonder what we want with so many cockerels but it takes a lot to feed so many people. We ate the first of them for Sunday dinner about a week ago and it took about 45 for the 2 buildings. They weighed about 2 or 2i pounds apiece." Caring for the chickens is not too difficult. The feed room where the picture was taken joins the 2 buildings which house the hens and pullets and the running water is handy. The feed is ground by electricity and Ringler needs'only to dip it from the big drums. The cockerels arc out on range. Aren't those nice, big, white eggs? The chickens looked good, too, and Ringler would rather have had a picture of them but the photographer had his own ideas of what he wanted. WE BUY...
