Here H». • Increasing their dairy herds and feeding their cows more grain and supplements members of the Algona Cooperative Creamery are marketing more milk through their cooperative /than they used to. They're answering the war cry for more and more production of this •vital food. And when they Want to see how some of their increased •production goes off to aid the nation's war effort, they can step into the back part of the Algona creamery plant and see how fluid skim milk is transformed to a fine powder for shipment to our allies and to .our soldiers and sailors. The photo shows the recently- installed milk drying and powdering machines in operation. That long sheet of filmy stuff ailcng the left side is dried milk being peeled off a revolving heated drum by a razor- sharp* knife. The sheet of milk falls into a trough at the hot-, torn where it is chopped up and carried to a double-pulverizing (apparatus, which grinds it to a r dust-like powder. Then it falls into a barrel, like the one you see Melvin Sill getting ready to .take away. The ibarrel holds 200 pounds of powdered milk, the equivalent of over 29'ten-gallon cans of fluid milk. Note the labels on the •barrel—the ".brand" of lease- lend shipments. Directors of Algona Co-Operative Creamery, who decided to install the equipment as part of the co-op's contribution to winning the war, are: 1 Harry J. Bode, Algona, president; Andrew Godfredson, Algona, vice president; C. R. Schoby, Bode; Sim Leigh, Irvington, and E. R. Mawdsley, Algona. Mads Christiansen is manager. lA director of the AJglcna t la,, Co-Operative creamery, Andrew Godfredson, 'flarmer of Kossuth county, sets a good example by feeding 'his Holsteins a grain supplement to step up their milk production. Here he's feeding a "dessert" of bran, ground corn, oil meal and a mineral compound. ANDREW GODFREDSON 10 Gallons of FLUID Skim Milk equals 6.9 Ibs. of POWDERED -'Skim Milk The Algona oo-op uses a milk dryer jot the ,revolvting drum •typei The drums, some three feet in diameter, are filled with live steam, which heats them to the proper temperature. Fluid skim milk falls into the "V" formed by the two drums, which almost touch as they revolve. As the milk is heated, it clings to the drums in a thin layer. A razor-sharp knife, running the full length of each drum, scrapes off this layer in the form of a flimsy sheet of dry milk. The dry milk then goes through chopping and pulverizing equipment to put it in final powdered form. A 200-pound barrel will be filled in an hour. Shipping 'space is at a premium— and refrigerated space on ships is especially scarce. Thatfs whjy foods for lease-lend and for our armed forces are first condensed to smaller and more easily preserved forms. Ten gallons of fluid milk weigh nearly 7 pounds when powdered.

YOUR COUNTY AGENT PLAN FOB LIVESTOCK FEED Small grain seeding has started, but the question is, will there be enough grass and legume seeding clone to insure pasture and hay for this fall and next .winter. Our war demands call for increased livestock production. For this, pasture and haj" are essential. Even this spring hay must be short if the hay prices reported are any indication. In-, creased corn and bean acreage is desired, but this increase shoulr. not all come out of grass land. Take some of it out of the oats. The returns from' a good acre of pasture is very high and besides the livestock does the harvesting- Save labor where you can. SHOULD PLANT THESE GARDEN CROPS EARLY _,, Cabbage, carrots, lettuce, peas, parnsips, radish, swiss chard, asparagus, onion sets and potatoes should be planted early, say April I to, 15th, Of course, second and possibly third plantings ca,n, 'be made of some things like radishes, carrots, lettuce, etc, SPRAY FQQ GOOD FBPIT .
