Every year Mrs. Housewife gels more fussy about th« interior egg quality. This makes breeding for egg quality more important all the time. Good poultry breeders break out thousands of eggs to select hens that produce thick, up- standing whites. These hens become breeder*. Centralized breeding farms like this one operated by DeKalb near Sycamore, Illinois are needed for selecting the best birds out of thousands. This breeder inbreeds certain strains for many generations to intensify good points. Poor points also are intensified by this, process, and are culled. Then inbred strains are crossed to produce hybrids with greater vigor and producing ability. This is the same process used in developing hybrid corn. START'M RI6HT..

St. Loult 2, Missouri •W.V.V. Many questions arise when a new product such as NlCARBAZlN becomes available. For answers, growers depend on their servicemen—men whose organizations supply them with information from Merck research, production, and marketing experts. Here are a serviceman's answers to questions frequently asked about NlCARBAZlN. a How does NlCARBAZlN compare with other cocddiostats In Its effect on market weight? A In recent comparative feeding "• trials, NlCARBAZlN-protected birds averaged 0.19 Ib. more than birds on another coccidiostat. This extra weight per bird gave growers 10,564 Ibs. added market weight for the 55,600 birds on NlCARBAZlN feeds Q. Is NICARBAZIN corubfentfjr effective against coeddiosls mortality? A Yes. Reports from every leading •*»• broilerareashowthatNlCARBAZlN provides the most effective curb against coccidiosis death loss. In one area, for example, growers reported no coxy death loss in 174,542 birds protected with NICARBAZIN. With these same growers, mortality ran as high as 12 per cent in 48,500 birds on another coccidiostat. a What would happen If hogs inadvertently ate poultry feeds containing NlCARBAZlN? A Studies prove that NlCARBAZlN A. is_ harmless to young or feeder • swine just as it is nontoric when fed to . chickens, turkeys, dogs, cats, rabbits, sheep, and several types of laboratory animals. On the basis of present knowledge, NlCARBAZlN feeds should not be fed to swine breeding herds. Should NICARBAZIN be used to treat broilers already sick with coccidiosis? A No. If birds suffer an outbreak of «• coccidiosis when no preventive coccidiostat is used, or while on an ineffective coccidiostat, the outbreak should be controlled by immediate use of SULFAQUDJOXALINE. Once the outbreak is under control, thebroodshould be transferred to feeds containing preventive levels of NICARBAZIN. A Is there * reduction In overall mor- H» taQtjr, as well as cocddteb mor- taBty, when NICARBAZIN is used fa feeds? A Several poultry diseases are caused . •"- by secondary infections' which, may develop in birds already weakened by such conditions as coccidiosis. Because NICARBAZIN can practically eliminate coxy damage, birds are better able to resist secondary infections. Does NiCABBAzn* lose potency daring storage? A No. It is remarkablethat a drag **• so active against all dangerous species of poultry coccidia is so stable in the presence of all other feed ingredients. Storage tests with NICARBAZIN over a period of one year showed no loss of effectiveness. Pelleting or crumblizing has no adverse effect on NICARBAZIN stability.
