floors. The answer Is an electric
floor polisher. The electricity,
rather than the homemaker, furn
ishes the power.
An electric floor polisher saves
time and energery ? and money
by saving the flooring. Electrically
polished floors have greater beau
ty. Power polishing gives greater
sheen and reveals all the design
of the grain or material.

Timely Farm Questions
Q. How long should I let my
cow stay dry?
A. Six to eight weeks, according
to T. C. Blalock, dairy extension
specialist. A cow's normal lacta
tion length is 10 months, with a
six to eight week "rest period"
before the next lactation. If you
reduce the dry period, she will
probably give much less milk dur
ing the next lactation. Cows need
the rest to repair any damage
done to the complicated parts
of her milk producing system.
One study showed that cows given
the six to eight weeks dry period
produced 1.000 pounds more milk
than cows that were dry less than
Q. I can't dry my cow up; what
can I do about it?
A. You're lucky to have such
;ood milkers, say Blalock. but
they should get a normal dry
period. On heavy milkers, reduce
reed and water until production
drops to about 20 pounds a day
ind then just quit milking. They'll
Iry up. If a cow has had mastitis,
watch her closely; if inflamma
tion shows, milk her out again.
Q Can I get a loan to build
A. Yes, you can borrow up to
80 per cent of the cost, before
erection, through your ASC office.
