Announcement Of New Supplement At Ames, Aug. 4 The Thirty - seventh Annual battle Feeders' "Hey" Day will so held at Iowa State College \ugusl 4 and is likely to attract .cores of cattlemen and feed landlers from Kossuth County, according to county extension cli- •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 no\v 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.

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.
