BROOD sows demand
SPECIAL ATTENTION i
Those who are expecting fall litters
ihuiilil pay special attention to the
feeding of their brood sows. A sow
tiuit is not properly fed during the'
period of pregnancy cannot be expect
ed to do her best at furrowing time;
The ft ndency is to rely too much
upon corn as an exclusive feed for the
tews. There are no harmful proper
tic.; in corn; it Is a good feed so far
,is its fattening qualities go, but it
is not suitable for muscle and hone
Pudding. It is not necessary to ex
clude corn front the brood sow’s ra
tions—not at itll; hut It is necessary
to feed with it something that is com
paratively rich In protein, such as
tankage, oil meal or shorts, the former
being preferable in most oases be
cause cheaper—not cheaper per ton
but cheaper per pound of protein
A hog needs a certain amount of
animal protein, and since it can nearly
always he purchased cheaper in tank
age than In any other form, why not
use this product to a greater extent?
A brood sow that is fed one pound of
tankage with each peek of corn, while
ou pasture, will produce healthy, vig
A year ago Inst spring farrowing
records were kept on 53 Kansas farms
h> the 'experiment station of that
state, from these records it was
found that 263 sows that were fed
corn properly balanced with tankage,
skint milk, oil meal or alfalfa, far
rowed 3,600 pigs, or an avenge of
10.1 pig* per litter. Those sows' also
bad good surroundings and were well
cored for. (if these pig’s 64 per cent
were raised to weaning time. In other
word- (1.5 pigs per litter were thrifty
when old enough to wean.
Another lot of 100 sows, on 11
farms, farrowed an average of 7.2 pigs !
per sow and raised 3.3 tugs per litter.
These rows had received practically
nothing but corn. The unbalanced ra
tion decreased the size of the weaned
litters by 4<t per cent. Such results
arc not uncommon; on the contrary,
they Invariably follow the feeding of
corn alone to pregnant sows. A sow
can no more produce muscle and hone
out of corn, which Is deficient in the
constituents out of which they must
he produced, than can a mason make
mortar out of sand and water. One
I* as’ impossible ns the other.
Feed a balanced ration to the brood 1
sows now while they are carrying j
their litters and you will have a lot
of strong pigs tills fall.
Minerals Fed to Steers
Found to Be Beneficial
Minerals for steers were tried at
.the Iowa station during the pusft "'In
ter. A mixture of 50 pounds ground
limestone, 50 pounds spent hone-black
tnd one-third ounce of potassium Io
dide was fed to the steers Ht the rate
of one ounce per head per day. The j
steers in this experiment got shelled i
corn, corn silage, clover hay and oil j
meal, with salt available at all time*. :
The cattle which had minerals gained \
Slightly better, had a better appetite j
and were a little better finished at i
the end of the feeding period than
other cattle which had the same ration j
minus the minerals.
Mineral feeding to steers is still In
the experimental stage, but the results
at tlie Iowa station indicate that It
may be worth while. Where good
clover or alfalfa hay is fed, we should
expect that minerals have less effect
than in a ration in. which the hay lias
less mineral matter tlinn clover or
alfalfa. Those who can easily secure
the minerals can well afford to try the
Iowa mixture with their .next load oi
Profitable Practice to
Feed Foals Fresh Grain
Foals should not be allowed to fol
low mares that are working on the
farm, but should run together In a
roomy, clean, well ventilated box stall
or paddock. If n small pasture, sur
rounded by a good fence-and contnin
,n*t slmde Is available, It makes a
food ydace for foals. If fresh water
is not available constantly, It should
^ supplied often. •
The foals should be nursed morn
ing noon and night and allowed to
run with their darns during the night.
In this way they go through the sum
n,pr in good condition and cun be
"I'nned without any setback.
foals will learn to eat readily and
1 Is profitable to let them have no
ces* io clean, fresh grain. Two parts
crushed corn, two parts crushed oats

mixture, if crushed grain is not avail
