12 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE Dairymen Need to Feed More Grain If Iowa dairymen are (o meet new government goals for dairy production, they will have to learn and practice better feeding methods. Although dairy cows depend upon hay and silage primarily for feed, C. Y. Cannon, Iowa State college dairy specialist, says more cows must be fed balanced grain rations along with the roughage. This ration should include 1 to 2 pounds of protein feed daily. An adequate diet for dairy cows may be reached by feeding, along with roughages, cull soybeans, soybean meal or linseed meal and home grown grains such as corn and oats. Experiments at Iowa State college show that grain added to roughage in medium amounts, at the rate of 1 pound of grain to each 7 pounds of milk, will produce an increase in yield of approximately 15 per c e n t . Heavier grain rations of 1 pound of grain to 3'/4 pounds of milk increased . the yield approximately 26 per cent. Care of horses ai this time of year should include ridding them of internal parasites such as bots and small and large round worms. A veterinarian can administer the essential treatment.

Wilrna Poppen got busy with the yo-yo she got from Santa's grab bag and, sure enough, it worked. But that didn't stop the conversation. Elaine Holt, at the left, was telling something which wasn't recorded since the photographer had no sound equipment. Listening with "their backs to the camera are Joyce Pedelty and Betty Diercks. Looking at the camera thoughtfully is Mrs. Don Peters and the young lady .with the wistful (we don't know why) expression is Amy Lou Haight. None of the girls knew the picture was being taken until it was all 'over. More to Be Paid for Flax in '42 Crop Iowa flax producers are asked to increase ^ their 1943 acreage by 28 per cent (70,000 acres in the state) to meet the nation's war production goals, but this ought not be difficult for flax production should be profitable in Iowa next year--government price guarantees give flax about theVsame gross acre value as soybeans while to produce flax requires much less labor.- Flax must be planted on land which_ is free from weeds. Because of its habits of growth, this crop does not compete well planted following corn, but the crop has done well following soybeans if the land is rolled. Disking will probably be sufficient to prepare the soil on clean soybean or corn land. Flax requires a firm, well-packed seedbed. Early sowing is essential for high flax yields. The crop should be sown at about the same time as oats, since flax is damaged by high temperatures during maturity. * * * Redwing, Biwlng or Bison va- with weeds sunlight. for moisture and * * Iowa State college farm crops specialists suggest that flax be DO YOU NEED FUNDS PURCHASE YOUR OR REFINANCE FARM?

Biwing may not be widely used in 19*3 because ot the scarcity ot seed. Redwing is earlier and proved less susceptible to the diseases which damaged Iowa flax last year. The most serious flax diseases were pasmo and rust. They can usually be controlled by rotation and by careful cleaning O t the seed since .the organisms are carried in the soil and by trash ' i n the seed.

Milk Rapidly to Get All of the Milk "Get all the milk the cow has" is the advice ot Arthur Porter, Iowa State college extension dairyman. He says that dairymen must follow a few simple rules i£ the cow is to give a complete "let down" oE milk. First, the cow must be milked immediately after there is a stimulation for the "let down" o£ milk. The stimulus may be started by the rattling of milk pails, the sound of the milking machine pump, washing the udder or other things connected with the milking process. When milking is begun it must orogress rapidly and not more than 7 to 9 minutes can be occupied in milking and still have a complete "let down" of milk. If one is to get all the milk that a cow produces, there almost must be no distraction in the barn at milking time and the milker must be one who. does not cause suspicion or fear on the part of the cow. Changes from hand milking to machine milking . or vice versa can best be made at the beginning oE the lactation period. Similarly, cows which have had calves nursing may never milk as well as those milked manually. Porter says the f irst" milk drawn from- the udder of the cow is lower in butterfat content than the last. Milk lett in the udder is never fully recovered at following milkings. Furthermore, an udder not fully milked out is a better harboring place for undesirable bacteria, and more trouble will be encountered with infected udders all th " " HIGHEST CASH PRICES PAID FOR · EGGS · POULTRY . · HIDES O FURS KITSIS PRODUCE CO.
