February Dniry Report
Milk production per cow in the herds
of Wisconsin crop correspondents oin
February 1 was 14 per cent less than
on the same date last year and 12 per
cent lowver than the 1925 to 1930 aver-
age for February 1. The downward
trend in milk production as compared
to twelve months earlier began early
last fall. Milk production on about
February 1 was reduced somewhat as
a result of an extreme cold spoll oc-
curring at that time. The quantity of
grain and concentrates fed to milk
cows Is usually increased the first of
February as compared to mid-January,
but this year there was a decrease.
which had some influence in reducing
milk production. The per cent of cows
freshening  during  the  past three
months has been lower than the aver-
age which has also tended to reduce
osilkl prodliuction.  Witll the conitinuhilg
unfavorable soilk-feed price relation -
ship and low farm feed supplies, less
t'-ding of grain and concentrates nsa'
he expiected to contilne anil milk pro-
duction may be expec ted to remain at
lower levels through this feeding sea-
son.

pounds of milk shows a smaller de-
crease, 17.0 per, cent. iOne hulindlred
pounds of milIc would buy only S7
pounlds of a standard dairy ration (1ur-
ing this last January as compared] to
140 pounds a year earlier, and there
has been little incentive to purchase
grains and concentrates for the pur-
pose of supplementing the low    farm
grain supplies.
Cmlves IRnisted
Dairy reporters indicate that of the
calves horn in January there is a de-
crease of 10 per cent in the number
being raised  and   that more of the
calves are being sold for veal as com-
pared to the same month last year.
This is a continuation of the indication
of last month and may be expected in
view of the unfavorable feed supply
situation, the apparent leveling off of
thle. increase in cow nunibers, and th.'
m(ore favorabtle pric(s for veal.
