It takes cloth to make a coat PDF (262.3 KB)
Released Week Beginning November 10 It Takes Cloth to Make a Coat By Roy T. Harris State Supertior of Dairy Tests J UST as it takes cloth to make a coat, so it takes feed to make milk. The experiences of the owners of the highest producing herds in the state all point to a liberal grain ration for the best results. In some cases they have made $233.40 per cow over the cost of feed which has often amounted to as much as $134.00. The following rations have given splendid results with alfalfa hay. Try them. . Ration No. 1 200 Ground Oats 200 Ground Corn 100 Ground Barley 100 Wheat Bran 100 Oilmeal Oil Ration No. 2 300 Ground Oats 300 Ground Barley 200 Wheat Bran 100 Gluten Feed 100 Oilmeal Much depends, of course, on the price of feed. How- ever, these rations have proved exceptionally profitablez under the usual conditions. In addition to feeding lots of grain, it's also a good idea to feed your cows a home made mineral ration con- sisting of 80 pounds of steamed bone meal, and 20 pounds of Iodized salt. Just feed 4 pounds of the mineral mix- ture with every 100 pounds of grain. And in feeding your grain be sure to feed liberally at the rate of 7 pounds of grain for each pound of butter fat produced. Another article by Mr. Harris on feeding will appear in an early issue. "For Farm Prosperity" [Name of Your Bank) S S S S S S S -
