I MOST IMPORTANT
IN FOOD PROGRAM
(Special to thfc Reporter)
Dairy products have become
one of the most important items
in the Feed for Freedom pro
gram, according to A. P. Snow,
secretary-treasurer of the Win
ston-Salem Production Credit As
'sociation. At the beginning of
the year, the nation had in pros
pect a production of 122 billion
pounds of milk, Mr. Snow stated.
This was estimated to be 7 bil
lion pounds short of the amount
we should have to meet our civil
ian, military and lend lease ne?ds.
There has been some shifting of
dairy herds because of the draft
and labor shortage, and unfor
i tunately in the process some
dairy cows have gon cto slaugh
ter. The War Food Adminirtva
, tion had been urging farmers,
particularly the small operators,
tn aid in the situation by i::,vu;-
! ing tlieii milk proJjftion. Tilt
respoi ic has be n j.-,o > ! but the
I world still needs more milk

• plans to combat the usual slumo
'which takes place as pastures dry
up and as supplies of supplemei'-
• tary feeds decline. Temporary
pasture crops, to lengthen the
• grazing season, and an abundant
j supply of good hay and silagp,
will be invaluable to the war ef
fort in holding the milk produc-
I tion in late summer and winter,
1 according to Mr. Snow.

' and the Dairy Industry Commi.
tee suggest the following 8-point

>2) Provide plenty ol gooi
'hay— at least 400 to 500 pound,
depending upon the size of th
" I cow.
I (3) Provide abundant silage—
at least 2 1-2 tens per cow
l Trench silos may be used wher
permanent silos arc not available
k (4) Condition cows for freshen
ing. Eight weeks rest leads t
greater milk production. Fee*
enough to have cows in goo
flesh at calving time.
, (5) Feed good roughage liber
L ally—it's a natural and cheaj
feed for cowS.
j (6) Feed balanced rations. Ad
r just grain ration to productio:
and feed 1 pound to each 2 to
n pounds of milk produced.
(7) Feed to avoid summc
i slump. Cows on dry, short o
tough pastures must be given ex
tra feed, such as temporary pas
' 3 tures, hay, grain, and silage.
