14 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE Increase in Balanced Ration Ups Production The amount of grain which an Iowa dairyman can afford to feed his cows this winter will depend to some extent upon the price fie is able to get lor his whole milk, says Dwight Espe, Iowa State- college dairy specialist. Those wlio can get S2.50 per hundred pounds for their milk can afford to feed at least 10 per cent more grain this winter than thpse who receive $1.75. Good cows can be forced to produce 15 to 20 per cent more milk than normal by special feeding. Special feeding, in this case, means giving a generous amount of a balanced ration, Espe says. For instance, dairymen who are feeding 5 pounds of corn a day plus all the fodder and timothy hay a cow will eat, can add as much as 10 pounds more corn and it won't boost her production significantly. On the other hand, adding a pound or two of soybeans will work wonders because soybeans are high in protein. Labor shortage is now the greatest handicap to increasing dairy production as asked for in 1943. Livestock AUCTION THURSDAY, JAN. 14 GARNER, IOWA SALE STARTS PROMPTLY AT 1 P.
