W h a t a help records are when it comes to feeding dairy cows!. Experimental data has shoivn that the well fed dairy cow of average size, producing about one pound of butterfat daily, requires approximately 47 per cent of the feed she eat^for the maintenance of her body. She, therefore, has available tor milk production only slightly more than one-half of her feed. E. E. Anderson, of New Mexico State college, says if such a cow is fed only two-thirds as much feed, she will digest the scanty ration a trifle better, but she will still need nearly as much feed as before to maintain her body. As a result of scanty feeding, she will probably have only 30 per cent or less of the total feed she eats available for mil"; production. This, o[ course, means a much higher overhead expense. It is just as unwise to over- teed a poor eow as it is to be stingy with a good producer. The cow lacking in inherited capacity will store the excess nutrients on her body in the form of fat.

Recently house trailers were added to the line of the .company. elimination of counterfeit milk producers is possible. More feed is then available for better cows. And when more feed is fed to better cows, milk is produced at lower cost. The fact that feeds are high only emphasizes the greater need lor more liberal feeding of good cows and more strict culling of the poor and inefficient. GET THE GRUBS!

Acre Value Higher THan Most Crops ta Extra Equipment Needed to Raise It, Says Burnett. A portion of Iowa's traditional acreage of oats, barley, -rye or spring wheat might profitably be replaced with flax in the opinion of L. C. Burnett, agronomist at [owa State college. During the 10 year period, 1925-1934, the gross acre value oC flax in Iowa was $17.13 as compared to $9.21 for wheat, $9.06 for barley and $V.93 for oats. No extra equipment is needed to raise flax, Burnett points out. It fits into the rotation in place of oats or other small grains, is sown, harvested and' threshed with the same equipment. "About the only difference in cost of production of flax is in the cost of the seed," Burnett says. '!This is more of a problem than usual this year because of the shortage of good, tested flaxseed. Good seed is selling for about $2.50 per bxishel at the present time. It ordinarily sells for around $2." Development of wilt resistant varieties has eliminated the old fear that £lax would fail unless planted on new breaking. Agronomists and farmers are now quite generally agreed that flax does best following corn. It makes an excellent nurse crop for clover and alfalfa. It is not advised as a nurse crop for sweet clover since sweet clover is likely · to "take the field," making the flax difficult to harvest. Red "Wing and Bison are two varieties of wilt-resistant flax well adapted to Iowa conditions. A Message to the ... Farmer's Wife!
