Sheete^T,, r Ifc'W Dickinson, i, Spitler, 3rown Swiss were recently purchased jecause of the growing Interest of Iowa 'armers in this breed. A grade Holstein was also shown which was a good producing descendant of a group of scrub cows, purchased some years ago for an experiment on the value of good sires on poor cows. The original scrub cows were bred to a purebred Holstein bull and their resulting daughters gave thirty-nine per cent more milk. Continuing the breeding the graddaugh- ters showed a ninety-six per cent increase and further crossing of purebreds gave the great-granddaughters an average of 419 pounds of butterfat or 139 more tl<an the original scrubs. Poultry Diseases and Feeds. Poultry diseases and feeds were discussed by Professor Henderson, who recently came to this department replacing Professor B(.ttenbender, who is known to many Kossuth county people. Following the talk the visitors saw the dairy barns, where on one side may i be seen ten different kinds of flooring which have been in use since 1923 and also several kinds of milking machines which are in use. At the poultry farm brooder houses, feeding and management practices were observed and discussed.. At noon several picnic groups had lunch on the campus while others enjoyed a cafeteria, lunch in the Memorial Union. •£'*'-'' Dr.^-Pommel Talks.

Dr. "^stressed,, .reforestation, ,as a " " anda;pos- under cuitlvatloS,* ,' ' ,, Jv Dr. PflnameUalso mentioned tater- estlngjltems In connection with; each servatlori. He also told of General Kossuth, the Hungarian patriot, for whom Kossuth county was named. Animal Husbandry fiept. The women of the group left to vis It the greenhouses, home economics building and the library. Professor calne, of the animal husbandry department, talked to the men on livestock in general and stated that their problems with worms, necro and so forth were just the same as any other farm problem In Iowa and that they were continually trying to have clean ground for hogs and sheep to assist In disease and parasite control. The horse exhibit Included excellent draft stallions, mare and colts. Dr. Calne also stated that they had never had any trouble In disposing their good draft horses at fair prices and that even now buyers hi the state are looking more to the size and quality of ;he prospective purchase than they are to the price. Pictures of Battle Yard*. Pictures were shown of the cattle feeding yards and hog pens as wall as pictures of various experimental animals that had been fed. Mr. Hammond, who took charge of this part of the program, mentioned the results of linseed oil meal as against cottonseed meal for steers. He also mentioned the construction of hog houses, forage crops, dry Jot feeding trials, the use of oat groats and hulled oats and the use of warm water In winter with the hogs having free access which gave a $1.50 per head profit over cold water to hogs twice a day. Better gains seemed to be due to pigs drlnk- ng often but less at a time and thus eating more frequently at self-feed- srs. Beef Cattle Exhibit. Professor Stephenson discussed the beef cattle exhibit, including Short- lorns, Herefords and Angus. Sheep exhibits included Ramboulets, Southdowns, Hampshires and Oxfords, and hogs included Durocs, Hampshpes, Spotted Polands, Polannd Chinas, Berkshires, Chester Whites, Tarn- worths and Yorkshires. Alfalfa and Grass Plots. At the alfalfa and grass plots sev- jral hundred varieties and sources of seed were shown and the Grimm, which is preferred by many Kossuth county people was outstanding. Cossack was considered about the same but apparently did not warrant the extra cost over Grimm. Feleris grass was also discussed. This Is used for low ground. Soy beans and artificial hail damage experiments on corn and and small grain were shown. The soy beans when drilled with a grain drill and cultivated with a drag or weeder as many as nine times had given good results as a hay or seed crop. A patch of alfalfa badly affected with bacterial wilt which is a disease that is quiet serious farther south in the state was also discussed. The Agronomy Farm. At the agronomy farm, Mr. Burnett discussed methods of grain production, plant ', inbreeding and so forth. He Burnett also talked briefly on crop disease control through use of resttt- varietfes, barley stripe «md rust be* U , B mentioned. This discussion was of interest to the Kossuth county men of R. H. Porter to this county during the last year or two on disease control and seed treatment wofk. Crop Rotation. Mr. oreman then gave a discussion of Soil Types and Crop rotation and fertilizer experiments. He discussed an exhibit of ten different types of planter attachments with the men, showing the advantages and disadvantages of the different types. A disc attachment for broadcasting fertilizer was shown. The End of the Tour. A drive through the horticultural farm and then back to the campus ended a very successful farm tour and those who attended were well satisfied that the time spent was worthwhile.
