declines, the reduction being lluite
maikecl in much of the Western Corn
Belt Area.
For Wisconsin the nulmsber of 11ilk
cows has shown practically no change
for three years. Estimates for Jan-
uary 1, 1937 again place the state's
milk cow population as 2,136,000 head
which, while it is the largest number
for any state, is the same figure that
has been carried for Wisconsin since
1935.
Dairy Heifers. The total number
of heifers in the United States being
kept for milk cows is estimated to be
less than 1 percent larger than a year
ago. The number of yearling heifers
is smaller than last year but the numn-
ber of 2-year olds is larger, which
shows that with the short feed supply
fewer calves were raised in 1936 than
in the previous year. Increases in the
numbers of 2-year old heifers are
fairly general throughout the United
States, though for most states the
changes are not especially        largc.   In
yearling     heifers    the   Northeastern
States show an increase and there is
also some increase in the Western
States, most of the remaining states
show fewer yearling dairy heifers.
