Timely Farm Questions
Q. What type, of brooder is best
for North Carolina-conditions?
A.. Brooders have beeni devised
to meet all situations from where
only 40 to 50 are brooded with a
lamp brooder to where many hun
dred are brooded with a hot water
syster. The source of heat may be
wood, coal, kerosene,, fuel oil, or
electricity. The type' of 'brooder to
select will depend upon the econ
omy of operation, availability of
fuel, and the cost of fuel. Prac
tically all types of brooders have
been tested and found satisfactory
for North Carolina conditions,

Q. Do dairy caws provide a
profitable sideline ?
A. Fred M. Haig, professor of
dairying, says North Carolina is
still lagging behind more progres
sive states', in the v number of dairy
cattle. Nearly one-third of the
State's farms' do not own a single
dairy cow, this being especially
true of tobacco and cotton farms,
Thousands of these farms, Profes
sor Haig believes, could grow suf
ficient feed for five to ten cows
without interfering with the pro
duction of regular cash crops. This
would provide a profitable .source
of extra cash for these farms and
help the : food-for-freedom cam
paign in addition.
