State College Answers
Timely Farm Questions
Q. When should the laying flock
be culled ? . '
A. Since efficient production
comes through continuous selection
some culling may be needed each
month in the year, but the most
rigid culling should be made to
ward the end of the laying period.
This usually occurs from July to
November and the flock should be
watched carefully during July and
August for early molters. Hens
that molt in June, or August should
be taken from the flock and dis
posed of as soon as molt appears
or production ceases. .
Q. Should a dairy cow be given
a grain ration during the dry
A". If there is plenty of good
pasture available and the animal
lis in good flesh no other feed will
be necessary, but the animal should
have free access to a good mineral
mixture unless the grazing is le
gume crops or hay is being fed. .11
the pasture is short or the cow
in poor flesh enough concentrate
should be fed to put the animal in
good flesh before freshening. How
ever, all high protein grains and
corn is usually removed from the
grain ration about two weeks le
fore freshening. A good grain mix
ture to feed during this period- is
composed of equal parts of.' wheat
bean and ground oats.

He was never a man to pout,
Nor had he any thought of doii'bt ;
Though in the spirit of a prince,
He was a man of common sense.
A friendly hand to all he met,

While I had known him just a

Nor met a finer brother here,
Since he was filled with joy and
