CAREFUL CHOICE OF ROOSTER GOVERNS SUCCESS OF FLOCK While the selection of females of the poultry flock is an important factor in any breeding program, the selection of the male is of greater importance, says N. F. Waters of the Paul- try Husbandry Department at Iowa State College. The rooster will be mated to several females and will, therefore, influence all o fthe offspring, while the female will influence only a few of the entire progeny of the male. The owner of a farm flock has two alternatives in selecting a male. He may purchase a male or he can use one from his own flock. In either case the male should show great constitutional vigor, good type, and should possess strong male characteristics and behavior. One of the quickest methods of improving the egg production of a flock is to purchase a good male from a reliable breeder. The general practice of trading roosters is a poor one unless both flocks are of the same breed and have attained a high level of production. In general, approximately 15 females should be placed with one, male. In the case of Leghorns this number may be increased to 20 birds. For the heavy Asiatic breeds it may be necessary to reduce the num Clearfield Events Wilson Stephens has been busy hauling coal from Centerville; also several other truckers have been busy.

A letter from Murl McDonald, assistant director of extension at Iowa State College and chairman of the state agricultural planning committee, to C6unty Agent Robert M.

County reports were to be completed early in March but additional time will be granted before the state committee makes up tis report for the United States Department of Agriculture.
