MY UNCLE SAYS Good livestock depends on three things: Feed, Breed arid Care. Of these three things, good feeding ; s known to be one of the most "important. Without that, care and good breeding are thrown to the wind. A combination of proteins, vitamins and minerals must be fed with farm grains in order to maintain health and meet the present day demands for rapid growth and economical gains. BIG GAIN MINERAL STOCK FOOD for all livestock is a true value feed—blending carefully selected proteins, vitamins and minerals in one bag skillfully combined to balance with your home grain. Ask your dealer, or the man who feeds it, about results obtained with Big Gain. Whlttemore Produce, Whlttemore K. ad H. Oil Company, Burt J. F.
