Just As a Gas Engine
Must Have Gas
                          C      OWS won't produce milk profitably without
a
    By Roy T. Harris        balanced ration any more than a gas engine will
run with-
    State Supervisor        out gas. Good cows, balanced rations, and efficient
man-
    of Dairy Teats       agement mean the greatest returns from the herd.
                             One of the recent highest herds in Wisconsin
was fed
                          an excellent grain ration of about:
                              1000 pounds of corn,
                              1000 pounds of oats,
                              2000 pounds of 24 per cent protein commercial
                                 mixed feed.
                             With this ration the herd, consisting of five
registered
                          Holsteins, average 15,754 pounds of milk with 612
pounds
                          of butterfat having an average test of 3.88 plus.
These
                          cows also received clover hay and good corn silage
and
                          were milked three or four times daily. The average
cost
                          of feed was:
                              Cost of roughage including pasture ...... $
52.42
                              Cost of grain per cow .................. 81.98
                              Total cost of feed per cow .............. $134.40
                              Value of product per cow above feed cost $233.40
                              Without feed even the most efficient cow is
unable to
                          show profit. For the greatest returns, keep a few
high
                          producing tested cows and feed them liberally.
Feed your
                          cows about as many pounds of grain per day as there
are
                          pounds of butterfat produced in a week.
