Announcement Of New Supplement At Ames, Aug. 4 The Thirty - seventh Annual Cattle Feeders' "Hey" Day will be held at Town State College \ugust 4 and is likely to attract cores of cattlemen and feed handlers from Kossuth County, according to county extension di- •ector Dean Barnes. Barnes says a high point of the event is expected to be the announcement of feeding results obtained with a new "Iowa economy supplement." This supplement is understood to cost only a little more than half as much per ton as other cattle supplements now available. The new supplement consists principally of corncobs, molasses, urea and minerals with a little stilbestrol. Thirty-two cattle are on experimental feed now at Iowa Stale College using this supplement. Results will be announced at the August 4 "Hey" Day. Other experiments likely to attract special interest from Kossuth County cattle feeders include one recently completed in eastern Iowa to determine the relative effects of stilbestrol and aureomy- cin in reducing the costs of wintering rations for beef steers Cornstalk silage and grass silage rations are used in this experi ment with 82 head of good to choice yearling steers. Thursday, July 7, 1955 Algeria (la.) Uppar Oa> Motnai- Iowa's Formers Have High Index The standard of living of Iowa's, farm families, consistently ranking the best or one of the best in the nation, hit a new high in 1954, reports Bernard F. Nowack, Director of Statistics and Market Research for the Iowa Development Commission. According to figures released y the U.S. Department of Agri- idture's Bureau of Agricultural Economics, in 1954 the farm iperator family level-oMiving index in Iowa was 185 against the national average of 134. Items on which these farm- operator family level-of-living indexes are based are: (1) percentage of farms with electricty; (2) percentage of farms with telephones; (3) percentage of farms with automobiles; and (4) average value of products sold or traded in the preceding calendar year (adjusted for changes in purchasing power of the farmer's dollar). Index figures have been calculated as far back as 1930, and since then the standard of living of Iowa's farmers has steadily risen, ranking first in the nation except for 1940, 1945 and 1954. NOW-IN OUR SHOWROOM See The Latest In Gas Built-in Kitchens T. Oats To Be Topic, Friday An oat variety discussion n^eet- ing will be held at the Bernard Thilges farm, 8 miles south and two miles west of Algona at 6:30 p.m. July 8, according to Dean Barnes, county extension director. The extension service, in cooperation with Thilges, has 15 different varieties of oats planted in a plot, side by side.
