United Home Baak »f ft|*s#« Cily, Clerk Jam, Jelly Are on Way to Grocers n. Ames--More commercial jams, jeJlies, marmalade and fruit butter are finding their way to grocery shelves than have been available for several months. They are products of the -1943 summer and fall fruit crops. Production of all fruit spreads during the fall of 1943 was quite abundant. The jam pack was meager because of poor harvest o£ strawberries, peaches, apricots and sour cherries. Miss Marie Budolfson, extension home management specialist at Iowa State college, says strawberry production has decreased" steadily- since the war because of tack of manpower to grow and handle the crop. Low apple production caused diversion of lower grade apples, ordinarily used for apple butter, into fresh use, for .which prices are more favorable. Large quantities of grape jelly, plum preserves and citrus marmalade are now on the market. Abundant crops of blackberries, raspberries and youngberries last summer have made plenty of jams of these fruits available. Consumption of fruit spreads is being encouraged: While, they contribute little besides flavor and-, calories to the diet, they stretch butter and other spread supplies and at the same time maintain bread consumption. United States civilian consumers will have purchased 56 million pounds of jam, 200 million pounds of jellies, 110 million rounds of marmalade and nearly iO million pounds of apple butter y June 30, allocations made by he food distribution administration indicate."That is about 7/10 of the 1943-44 pack. Except for 3 per cent which allied nations will receive, the rest goes to the U. S. armed forces. Turning high producing dairy cows out of warm moist barns into cold yards is hard on production because of the shock. Unlike humans they can't put on an overcoat to keep them warm. Ice cold water also cuts production and is a cold-shock.

North Iowa, Southern Minnesota Farms 7 SOWS And70Pigs of a SQuth w - nd , g wayg says Ben Curran, son-in-law of the Bisgrove's and one of the partners in Indtanhead Farm No. 1, "but vou * have to be afraid of the weather in raising pigs " 9« vJj Curran proves this by having pigs come in at 26 below zero weather and never losing a pig from cold And he. capitalizes on this by* -- ' having pigs farrowed every month in the year, increasing the production of the farm immensely. 'A farmer can't always tell what tomorrow's weather will ue, so I don't take chances. I built an electric brooder," using a little scrap lumber and a 100 watt bulb. This simple device has saved a lot of little pigs and t don't have to put them under it more than once .or twice before they get the idea." Of course, Curran takes^ other precautions also. The sows are sprayed before farrowing time io prevent mange and lice. Curran uses an electric sprayer shown above for this. He has a 20 pen house and has about 27 of the 54 brood sows coming in now. But the electric brooder shown below furnishes a nice comfortable place for the little P'gs to get_ under and they're never rolled on. On Indianhead Farm No. 1 there are also 150 fattening pigs about ready, for market, for it's a constant turnover with them every month in the year. And "the average, believe it or not, is 70 pigs from 7 sows. DRENCH FOR WORMS Pregnant ewes can be treated with phenothiazine for nodular worms. The drug, which is very effective in eliminating thfe worms, does not harm the ewes, according to Iowa State college livestockmen. They state-that in cases where trouble has followed treatment, it has been due to rough handling of the sheep All lambs and sheep , including pregnant ewes, should be handled gently while any drench is administered.
