MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE NINETEEN Diagnosis Clinic Held at College But Local Vets Can Best Handle Animals. Diseased animals and fowls can best be cared for by local ·veterinarians, says County Agent M. E. Olson. If this is impossible animals may be shipped or brought directly to the Iowa State college division of veterinary medicine, Ames, to be autopsied for diagnosis. The local veterinarian, however, has the advantage of being present at the farm to observe the conditions. He may perform the autopsy anJ send the affected parts to the college for confirmation of his diagnosis. Wants Them Brought The laboratory at the college prefers that animals be brought instead of shipped. Not only are the animals likely to be in better condition if brought to the laboratory, but also the owner can describe the history of the illness and symptoms which help in making diagnoses. Sick a n i m a l s , whether brought directly or shipped, are preferable for diagnosis. Even if the animal dies en- route the material is fresher than it would be if it were dead when shipped. Small dead animals, if well ·wrapped, may be sent by parcel post. Others may be expressed. If possible, baby chicks should be sent'alive by parcel post. Live animals must he properly crated for shipping. It is best to send more than one affected animal to allow for confirmation of the diagnosis. A letter accompanying the material should state all known history of the case symptoms and the number of · animals lost under similar conditions. Impractical to Ship. Generally it is impractical to ship large animals for a greal distance. It is most satisfac tory to have a local veterinarian perform the autopsy. A schedule of fees charged by the laboratory for diagnoses follows: Sheep, calves, hogs horses, cows, dogs and other large animals, SI; and hens roosters, turkeys, geese and ducks, 50 cents. Price for the diagnosis is th same regardless of how manj animals are autopsied. If one or two animals are autopsied without a definite diagnosis being evident, others may be sent in during the next two weeks without an additional charge. Many Different Crops Listed in Seed Directory "Iowa seed for Iowa farms." That is the aJm of the new 1936 seed directory now available. Joe L. Robinson, Ames, secretary of the Iowa Corn and Small Grain Growers' association, has compiled the directory, which gives the name, address, kind and amount of seed each fanner or firm has for sale. Requests for the directory may be addressed to Mr. Robinson, and copies will be mailed soon. The supply of corn listed is arranged according to sections of the state. Sources of seed Supplies Water The type oJE poultry wa- terer shown above is being used successfully by many Iowa farmers, according to W. M. Vernon, extension poulfrrynian at Iowa State college. The pipe extends down into the water trough. When the wat«r f»ls the trough up to a certain point, the flow Is stopped until it drops below the end of the pipe again. In this type of waterer the barrel must be air tight. Such equipment keeps a supply of clwin water on the range at all times. of the following other crops are also listed: Oats, oarley, spring wheat, soybeans, clover, alfalfa, flax, cane, Sudan grass, timothy, rape, millet, buckwheat and Reid canary grass.
