| GAIN IN WEIGHT ON
Onlns In weight on fattening enttle
cost more tlmn the market price re
ceived for them. A margin over the
eo.st of the steers per cut. is neces
sary for profit, or to break even on
the feeding operation.
The margin necessary to break
oven under present leedtng conditions
with different fattening rations1 is
brought out in a recent test carried
on ht tlie Colorado state experiment
In one lot fed yeftrllng steers weigh
ing “Hi pounds nnd costing ifT.nd per
ewt. were fattened fob I'.Vt days on
barley, sttnllowcr Mlitge arid fitful fu.
They gained 1.73 pounds dally, Or 31*9
ftoniids when weighed up at market,
and rctiulred 3,411 pmirtds of silage,
2,095 pounds Of barley and 1,033
pounds of alfalfa hp.v to'put on fids
gain. With silage at $-1.90, " Parley at
$25.00 and alfalfa hay at $18.00 per
ton It cn<t $13.04 to fatten each steer;
-3.01 represents Interest at 8 per cent
< n $50,112, the" first cost of the steers,
pins the feed cost, $43.04, for 100
days. The shipping and selling ex
licnse was $2.05, making a total cost
per fat steer hack on the market of
$100,92. The steer weighing 1,045
pounds laid lo tiring $0.0*1 per etvt., or
a margin of $2.00 over cost to break
even. A three-cent margin would
have meant a labor return of $3.57
per steer. A four-eent margin a labor
return /of $14.02, etc.
in this method of figuring a fair
market price Is secured for home
grown grain nnd alfalfa fed, while the
feeder with tlifi use of plenty of bed
ding has between three and four tons
of manure per head in addition.
In beet-growing districts, where wet
pulp can he hauled nnd fed, a nar
rower margin Is needed. With a ra
tion consisting of wet pulp, beet mo
lasses, cottonseed cake and alfalfa,
only $1.08 over purchase price per
cwt. was needed to break even. Im
properly balanced rations cause low
gains and lack of finish, which cut
down the size of the margins secured.

Woman At Asheville
Dies In Hotel Room
Asheville, Dee. 3.__—The finding
of the body of a woman in a local
hotel by a negro woman, promised
the police another mystery in the
last five days, but after holding an
inquest, the coroner’s jury decided
that death had been due to heart
failure and pneumonia.
Eugene Kingsland and a negro por
ter at the hotel, earlier in the day
were arrested and placed in jail
pending developments, but were re
leased when the jury found the wo
man had died of natural causes. She
was registered at the hotel as Grace
Welch, of Ohio.and was apparently
abotit 35 years of age.
Kingsland was detailed by the
police when the negro porter testi
fied that lie saw a white man emerge
from the woman’s room at about mid
night last night. Death occurred at
about 4 o'clock this morning.
