Every year Mrs. Housewife gets more fu«»y about the 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, upstanding whites. These hens become breeders. 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'EM RIGHT... NIW SUMR MIMMA CHICK STARTINA with NICorboiln tar cocci protection • 2 Ibt. for light br«di • 3 Ibt. for h«ovl«* Q. Many questions arise when a new product such as NlCARBAZIN 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 NICARBAZIN. a How does NICARBAZIN compare with other cocddlostaU in Ita effect on market weight? A In recent comparative feeding *»• trials, NiCARBAZiN-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 NICARBAZIN feeds.

St. Uul* 2, Mil t«uri la NICARBAZIN cotuUtently effective against eoceldioala mortality? A Yes. Reports from every leading *»• broiler areashow that NlCAKBAZlN 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 inad- H* vertently ate poultry feeds containing NlCARBAZIN? A Studies prove that NICARBAZIN • is harmless to young or feeder swine just as it is nontoxic when fed to chickens, turkeys, dogs, cats, rabbits, sheep, and several types of laboratory animals. On the basis of present knowledge," NICARBAZIN feeds should not be fed to swine breeding herds. A Is there a reduction In overall mor- H* tality, as well as coccidiosis mortality, when NICARBAZIN la used In feedaT 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. a Should NICARBAZIN be used to treat tpoilers already sick with coccidioais? 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 SULFAQUINOXALINE. Once the outbreak is under control, the brood should be transferred to feeds containing preventive levels of NICARBAZIN. 0, Does NlCAKBAZlN lose potency during storage? A No. It is remarkable that a drug • so active against all dangerous species of poultry cocvidia 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 NlCAKBAZlN stability.
