Swihe Field Day at Moldett Fai-m Results of £*pftrirneiit» Con ducted Itifotigh farm Bttreatt Approximately 25 people at tended the swine field day hel< at the Henry HoTden farm las Wednesday. This dajr Was the ell max to the experiment cond octet through the cooperation of thi Mills County Farm Bureau, Et tension Service of Iowa State college, the Codahy Packing: company of Omaha, and the Iowa Farm Bureau Federation, Mills County Board of Supervisors, and Carl Holden, local eooperator. The experiment consisted of feeding three lots of pigs. Each lot was fed on one-third acre of alfalfa pasture on clean ground. All feeds were fed in a self- feeder and water was kept In a self-waterer. Lot No. 1 was fed shelled corn, whole oats, and simple minerals. Lot No. 2 was fed shelled corn, whole oats, tankage, and simple minerals. Lot No. 3 was fed shelled corn, a mixture of 80% ground oats and 20% tankage, and simple minerals. Lot No. 1 made a total gain of 684 pounds; Lot No. 2, 1190 Ibs; and Lot No. 3, 1080 Ibs. In 127 days. Total feed used for each pen was: Lot No. 1, 1346 Ibs. of corn, 208 Ibs. of oats, and 14 Ibs. of minerals. Lot No. 2 used 1915 Ibs. of corn, 374 Ibs. of tankage. and 312 Ibs. of oats. Lot No, 3 used 1466 Ibs. of corn, 96 Ibs. of tankage, and 400 Ibs. of ground oats. Total cost of feed per lot was: Lot No, 1. $13.26; Lot No. 2, $25.26; and Lot No. 3, $17.92. Value of gain figured as $4.25 per 100 Ibs. was: $24.82 for Lot No. 1; $43.24 for Lot No. 2; and $39.14 for Lot No. 3. Feeds in this experiment were figured at the following prices: Corn, 35c per bu.; tankage, $2 per cwt.; minerals, $2 per cwt.; pasture, at 40c per pig; oats at ZSc per ba., plus lOc per hnndre for grinding. From the above results th following coneloslons can b drawn: 1) Lot No. 1 made th largest gain; 2) Lot No. 2 had most valuable gain; 3) Contrary to common belief the pigs tha were not fed a protein ate less grain and consequently made less gain. Jorft Now! Within a few short weeks the American people hate been awakened to the fact that the solution of their many economic Ills lies to a great extent in their willingness and ability to work together. The Farm Bureau has been ;eachlng and promoting this cooperative idea among rural peo- ile for more than a decade; in act, years before the depression arrived to prove beyond a doubt hat each of as, whether farmer or business man, could not pnr- ue his own Individual Way for Iways without disastrous conse- nences. Hard times, however, bring rapid changes in our thinking. In- Ivlduallsm has been cast aside Imost overnight for group ac- lon. Farmers, with their far-flung nterests, stand to profit more through unity of action than any other group. This does not mean, however, the mere bringing of one's thinking Into harmony with the idea. Not at all! tt means Joining the farm organization In your local community and putting your shoulder to the wheel of cooperative action. Nothing less! But the work must not be considered finished. In fact It has Just begun. The need for greater cooperation among farmers is more urgent today than ever before. Therefore, give this matter your most serious attention. It is tremendously Important. Resolve today to Join your Farm Bureau. It gives you state and national representation In the greatest farm movement of the day. ftcrU flfctt, Ite sitrtflrt-T*« UWtt tfffrfft* fit total *djft«««rt afmt&Tgtfgitfoniyte&T.

Try l New Fort Pea Molnes Supper Club every night, A BLACK HAWK HOTEL DES MOINES New Developments in Adjustment Plan The newest development in the adjustment program In Iowa is the attention dairy farmers are giving to developing a code to govern their business. A meeting called by the Iowa State Dairy Association was scheduled to be held at Iowa State college Saturday to discuss plans for a program to be submitted to the federal, administration for approval. It"ls expected that the dairymen will ask for elimination of low- producing cows, for production control, and for benefit payments to make up the loss to the pro. ducer while the adjustment is taking effect. The answer to why we heed a corn-hog program is this: The United States Is producing as much pork as ever, but the export market is practically gone, purchasing power is low and pec^ >le are eating less pork. There- ore the market cannot use so mafiy hogs as a few years ago. The government, while attempt- ng to help farmers develop a ong-tlme adjustment program, is ttemptlng to take the surplus off »e market, much of it to be used n relief work for people who would otherwise have no pork. This action prevents the total collapse of the hog market while the long-time program is being developed. And corn acreage must be reduced enough to compensate for the reduction in hog production! niitrsnal and excellent recipes were used by Miss Gladys Looney tt the cooking school.

During September the 12 federal land banks made loans total- ling more than half as much as was loaned during all of 18T32. Nearly 4,400 loans were made for an aggregate of over 14 million dollars. County wheat allotment committees In Iowa are busy approving contract applications. After approval they are checked by Leslie M. Carl, state allotment officer, Des Moines. and returned to the county committees, which proceed with the signing of contracts. Signed contracts are due in Washington on or before Dec, 1. Benefit payments will be made to farmers in each county as soon as contracts from the county are approved. United States wheat reduction for 1934 approaches the seven Dairymen Use Better Sires Progress made In the use of better sires and the results derived from an Increase In the home growing of balanced rations are two highlights In the annual Iowa Cow Testing Association report just released by the Dairy Extension Service at Iowa State college. Both of these developments have enabled dairy farmers in associations to increase the average butterfat production per cow from 307 pounds in 1931-32 to 311 pounds the past year. Records show that high producing cows are the most profitable. Culling 10.2 per cent of all 'cows on test, or an average of two cows per herd, also has helped to increase the average production per cow, to increase prof- Its and at the same time to reduce the amount of butterfat on the market from these herds. North Tama led all associations the past year with an average' of 386 pounds of bntterfat per cow, Practically all members of this association raised most of their own feed. They culled 16 per cent' of their cows, or 4.8 per cent more than the average association. The average length of membership in the North Tama group is six years, Ernest Dtehl of Grundy county owned the highest producing herd in the state. His Holstein averaged 640.8 pounds butterfat. Mr. Dlehl b^s decreased the number of cows Jn bis herd about 26 per cent in the past four years and j improved bis feeding and breeding practices with the result that his average production has increased 200 pounds in that time, His cows returned |2.20 tor every dollar's worth'of feed fed last year, practically as much as four years ago, but put 940 pounds leas butterfat on the mar- < fee Cream 3 eggs 2 cups milk tt cup sugar 1-8 t salt 1 cup cream 1 t vanilla Beat the egg whites stiff.
