JOHN MeFALl WITH TWIN CALVES he fed which proved the difference worm control makes. Calf on right looks normal for a 4- month-old, but is 60 pounds lighter than iU twin that got "Pheno" in its feed. Tests Show Most Cattle Nave Worms and New Control Practice Pays Off John McFall, Mineral Point, Wisconsin, proved to himself and his neighbors that even moderate worm infections of "normal-looking" calves can make a big difference. From the time the twin Shorthorn calves (above) began to lick dry feed, he fed one calf a commercial ration that contained a small amount of Phenothiazine, while the other twin got the same feed but without the Phenothia- zine. When this picture was taken, the calves were four months old, and the one on the left which had eaten small amounts of Pheno- thiazine every day was 50 pounds heavier. Also, its coat was superior and over-all appearance bet• ter than its untreated twin. WORM CONTROL for your beef and dairy cattle can be just as easy and profitable no matter where you farm. Many manufacturers of feed and minerals now offer products containing Phenothia- zine for worm control. Ask your supplier for these products.

Machinery protection is provided at low cost with this pole-type shed. With more and more machinery at higher and higher prices being used on the larger farms of today it will pay to protect this investment more than ever before. Spray livestock for parasites such as ticks, lice, and cattle grub. It is also a common practice now to spray for blood sucking flies and other insects. Newer sprays last longer and can be applied in a booth as livestock go between pastures or into the barn. Systemic insecticides are also being tested. These products are carried in the animal's blood stream. They're strong enough to kill flies but not strong enough to harm animals. Put your lifting on wheels and save energy for other work. This cart saves tons of labor each year. Other chores that can be put on wheels are: milk, feed, and barn cleaning equipment.
