The Algona Upper DesMoine^Algona, Iowa, March 8,1938 SKIM MM IS VALUABLE AID Feed It to Young Stock; Has Variety of Food Elements 1 The value of skim milk in feed- tag young stock la not fully appreciated by all fanura. Too oftn a comparison in income between tb* termer who Mils butterfat and UH on* who tells whole mflk I* mad* without any consideration for the value of skim milk. It la difficult to set any arbitrary value on aktaa mfflk, although feeding experts win teil you that it will displace a certain amount of grain or other feed in the ration. However, aklm milk baa value far beyond 1U food elements, and In some eases It may be worth as much as the original butterfat taken from the milk as has been proven In some poultry feeding trials. There are growth-promoting substance* in milk that an not found in other foods. In the final analysis the value of skim milk depends much upon the ' kind of stock it is fed to and the ability of the man feeding it There is no question bat that One, big, healthy calves can be grown more economically with skim milk than in any other way. Whole milk Is far too expensive to be fed to calves in any large amounts. Skim- milk has everything in milk except butterfat: this may be supplemented hi .a calf s ration with grains. For all practical purposes no feed equals warm aklm milk in growing big. healthy calves at low cost after they are three weeks old and up to six months, and It Is a proven fact that the dairy farmer who raises his own replacement stock, keeping the best calves from his best cows is certain to make more money. Since the cost of feed makes up the biggest production csot item in growing hogs, successful stockmen have learned that the liberal use of home-produced feed crops—aklm milk, farm-grown grains and good pasture—makes it possible to raise pigs at lowest possible cost Farm Population in Iowa, 1936 Dropped The farm population of Iowa decreased in 1936. On Jan. I. 1938, it was estimated at 961,900 by the Bureau of Agricultural Econmlcs of the United States Department of Agriculture. On Jan. 1, 1937, it had declined to 953^00 according to an estimate made the Iowa Agricultural Experiment Station in cooperation with the bureau. A survey in 1937 indicated that 19,800 babies were born to farm women during 1938. During the year 8,800 farm people died. Thus the farm population would have Increased by about 11,000 persons If there had been no movement of population to or from Iowa farms. There was, however, considerable movement of the population. And the result of this movement was to more than offset the natural Increase of the population. The greatest loss of farm population was caused by migration from farms to towns and cities. About 21,000 persons moved from towns and cities to Iowa farms, while about 38,000 persons moved from farms to towns and cities. A further net loss of farm population occurred as a result of farm to farm movement Only Good Chicks Profitable Layers (Univ. of Minnesota Bulletin) On most farms chicks are raisec each year for the sole purpose o: replacing part or all of the ok flock. Good production of large eggs at a profit is the usual object of flock owners. To accomplish this, two things are essential in the chicks raised: 1. Health and vigor to live and jrow. 2. Reasonably good laying ability. Neither of these can be left to chance. It takes breeders high in vitality to produce healthy vigorous chicks. The only way to avoid excessive losses from puUorom disease (white diarrhea) la to git chicks from flocks tested for this disease flocks front which an reactors have been removed. So it is with laying ability. In order to maintain or increase flock production from year to year, it Is imperative that breeding hens be •elected for their ability to lay goodHrised eggs aad many of them, •thto dM» 3t# jmaaa that the only profltabte ehteta pwa, tech cfcfcka may b* too nign-pciesd to be economical for On owner of a stdelme (aim flock.
