The Algona Upper Des Moines, Algona, Iowa, March 15,1934 Chick Hatchery Code In Operation; Cotton County Chairman VIOLATION CARRIES BIG FEDERAL FINE Purpose of Code is to Improve Quality and Reduce The Surplus Ever since President Roosevelt, on •Member 37, signed the Baby Chick •ide of Fair Competition, Iowa hatch- vrymen have been enthusiastically com- Irtylng with its provisions. The Code compliance committee chairman of this county is Willis Gotten of Lone Bock. The chairman of the district code compliance committee Is O. w. Qrotewald of Lake Mills. Any fanner or hatcheryman has the right to report alleged violations of the code t* any of these authorities. They, In twrn, will see that the information gets into the hands of the Iowa coordinator 4r into the possesaoln of proper federal authorities. Violations of the code carry heavy federal fines—150.00 per day for every day a hatchery owner operates his fftant in violation of the code provisions. Price CttMtac Prohibited The code requires that hatcheries Mil chicks and do custom hatching above their cost of production. Destructive price cutting Is prohibited. Hatch- concessions or secret rebates are permitted. Many things have been written into ;he code for the protection of the farmer, chief of which Is that advertising of all nature, including radio advertis- ng must comply with the code. All forms of misleading advertising are in violation of the code. Literature which violates the code will not be allowed to be dsitributed. When chicks are advertised as coming from blood-tested parentage they cannot be hatched in the same incubator or In the same incubator room as are hatched eggs from flocks not blood tested. All chicks sold as accredited or from blwod-tested stook must be delivered In containers properlv labe'iJ with a descriptive label carry the Information as to what these terms means and how they have been supervised. Under the code, hatchsrymen are not permlettd to include any extra chicks in any of their orders. Terrace Effectively Stops Soil Erosion; Cow Testing Helps to Cut Butterfat Costs Sow Oats, Barley Early is Advice Iowa's two main small grain crops, oats and barley, respond well to early sowing, experiments conducted during the past 5 years show. Many farmers say "it doesn't make much difference whether you get your oats planted the first of April or the middle of the month." Tests on oats showed, however, that an average delay of 11 days In sowing resulted-in an average loss in yield of 11.76 biffhels an acre. The advantage of sowing early varied considerably for coy flock-owners, too, are entitled to different varieties—Iowa No. 105, a very ~ ~- high yielding oat, yielded 17.1 bushels more when planted about the first week in April than it did when planted about the middle of the month. Hybrid D-67 only showed a gain of 3.9 bushels early planting, Ripening dates were delayed on 2 to 5 days by the 11 days delay in sowing. Results were similar with barley samples planted, although there was more variation in yield of different, varieties. The average loss in acre yield, because of 12 days delay in planting, was 7.64 bushels. The loss varied from nearly 15 bushels on some varieties to no loss on others. When the planting was delayed 28 days, all varetles showed big lossses and an average of 13 bushels loss for the 0 samples. Best results were secured on sowings about the first of April or last of March. benefit by the terms of this code and are to receive an adequate premium for their eggs. The main purpose of this code as outlined by the United States Dept. of Agriculture Is to Improve the quality of all chicks in this country and to reduce the surplus. Every hatchery, dealer, or broker of baby chicks must have a "Code Compliance Certificate" before the first Chicks are sold, or the first custom hatching egga are placed in the incubators. The certificate and labor provisions must be posted in every hatchery's place of business. All persons, corporations, partnerships, et4. that produce (chicks for sale, do custom hatching or deal in or sell chicks come under the code with •ne exception and ttiat) is—fanners who use eggs produced on their own farm and hatch them in Incubators on their own farm and sell less than 500 chicks in a calendar year are exempt. However, every Individual doing custom hatching, regardless of the number of chicks hatched, comes under the code. Every individual hatching eggs other than those produced on his own farm and offering chicks for sale, regardless of the number of chicks produced, comes under the code and la subject to all its provisions. One of the outstanding provisions of the code prohibits hatcheries from setting any eggs under 23 ounces aver* M« to the doten—(hta includes custom Batching done la any hatch-ry In the U. S. Chick Auctions Taboo The code also puts a taboo on Chick, auction sales. The auction sale is Illegal if any bid la accepted that Is below the hatcheryman'a regular list retail price. Hatcherymen must sell their chicks for the same price to everyone and are not allowed bo sell chicks for any different price than their regu'ar printed price list which must be on file in the office of the National Coordinator for the code. No special price The cow tester shown at Oie right has just finished the summary of the herd book for the past year and la going over it with the dairy farmer. Laet year 1,285 dairy farmers were members of Iowa associations. The average test association cow produced butterfat at, a feed cost of 11.5 cents per pound as compared wttli 14 cento a pound for titase producing at the level of all Iowa cows. Association members culled a little more than 10 per cent of their lower producing cows, or one out of every ten, as unprofitable. If all Iowa dairymen followed this practice, 140,000 cows Would be removed from production. KOSSUTH FARMS AND FOLKS By Will Harris, Farm Editor Kcssuth county Tanners hnve found production well worthwhile this winter In spite of moderate prices. In a good many Instance?, poultry raising is in charge of the farm wife. Eggs are readily marketable, and often take the place of money in trading for needed merchandise.

Then while leading a horse home from the Andrews sale, the horse kicked him, bruising his right arm qutte badly. Con Swanson is helping him for a while until his arm gets well. one was raising a larger flock this year; few regret the decision to increase thdr egg production. In many respects the greatest need of the poultry industry is the use of better-bred stock. The average annual production of laying hens in the United States Is only about 80 eggs. A flock average of 150 eggs per bird is readily possible if the stock has been bred to lay. In recent years much attcnton has been given to selecting and breeding for higher egg production, a fact which has resulted In much higher average egg production in the relatively smal farm flocks as well as In the large commercial poultry flocks. Culling out the poor layers from the laying flecks by selectlno based on their appearance and condition during the summer has become a very general practice whore hens are not trap nested. A typical sanitary Djogram of poul- ry raising involve."! thr >olnts: 1. Producing chicks from brooding itock free from pullorum disrnsc and latching tJiem in clran incubators 2.
