They brought back information on cattle feeding that many of them expect to put to use on their farms during the coming year, Findings in this class included Dr. W, H. Hale's report on feeding of green clipped brome-alfalfa forage to beef cattle in dry lot. Hale said feeding the clippings in dry lot brought greater returns over feed costs than grazing brpme-alfalfa pasture. Extension Director Barnes says the good results obtained with feeding 5 milligrams of stilbestrol daily to calves make it seem this program might be good for feeding 4-H club calves. Another finding that may be important to local farmers in planning their feeding programs The Southern Minnesota and Northern Iowa FREE GATE EXPOSITION AT FAIRMONT, AUGUST 10 - 14 Gigantic State Fair Carnival New Industrial and Floral Hall New Builders end Appliance Show with over 50 Exhibitorsl KSUM Studio on the Grounds—Free KSUM heater of the Fairl Martin County is proud of its outstanding Livestock Exhibits!

THE GATE IS ALWAYS FREE was a report by agronomists and livestock men that showed the protein content of cornstalk silage was appreciably increased by high nitrogen fertilizer applications to the cornfield. This will have a bearing on the amount of protein supplement needed in various feeding programs. C. C. Culbertson and Bruce Taylor, of Iowa State College, reported an experiment in which gilts following stilbestrol-fed cattle farrowed an average of 9.36 •pigs per litter and did not show detrimental effects from whatever stilbestrol they may have picked up from the droppings. Another experiment showed cornstalk silage with limited hay and a corn-mineral supplement makes a satisfactory low-cost wintering ration for beef cows. Dr. Wise Burroughs reported feeding 10 milligrams of stilbestrol per cow in the cornstalk wintering ration seemed to. benefit cows which are not pregnant. No beneficial results followed feeding stilbestrol to pregnant cows, however, and one cow failed to bear a live calf. Cornstalk silage, properly supplemented, also proved to be a satisfactory winter feed for growing heifer calves intended for slaughter. A big feature of the cattle feeders' day was the announcement of a new Iowa Economy Supplement. Cattle fed this supplement. Cattle fed this supplement made gains at 7 cents less per day per steer than those on the "Iowa 4" supplement announced last year. A. L.
