Tankage Very Good for Pigs on Alfalfa Pasture Is a protein sHppltnlent ilevP-<:ir for h(,s which are fatte,ed on alfalfa pasture? I.lght is sited on tiffs que. ti.n hy an experiment cndu(-ted last summer at the Kan::as exl'riment sta- tion. In this te.t two lots of pigs were fattened on alfalfa pasture. One re- ceived corn alone, while the other wa given corn and a quarter of a pound of tankage per head daily. In both cases the grain was h,md-fed twice a day on a concrete feeding floor. Both lots of pigs were fed for 120 days and received the same treatment. The pigs fed corn alone gained but three-quarters of a pound per head daily, while theme which had the tank. age put on gains at the rate of a pound and aquarer per head daily. The pigs which did not have tankage required 445 [unds of corn to make 100 pounds of gain. In contrast, those fed on corn ;tem-End Rot Fungus That Brings About Decay Still Is Important Factor. (Prepared by the United States Department of Agriculture.) Watermelon growers shouhl give seri- ous consideration to their responsibili- ties in connection with prevention of losses in transit, advises the United States Department of Agriculture. Examination of carloads at destina- tion has shown that. provided ship- ments are properly loadtl in clean. well-ventilated cars. and delivered within a reasonable length of time, any losses experienced usually result from the shipping of: (1.) Melons affected with bad anthracnose pock marks. (2.) Severely stmscaled or stale fruit. (3). Melons that carry cuts and bruises as a result of careless handling, or i (4).

When tl:e trl;!l was lU;l,le o*r,'l Was worth about $1 per hundred pounds and tankage about $4. The saving affected by the tankage, on the basis of these prices, was 23 cents on each 100 pounds of pork. Since corn is now higher in price and tankage about the ame as xhen this experiment was made. the saving due to the tankage would be somewhat greater at the prex- eat time, It was noted by those who conducted the trial that the pigs which had noth- ing but corn on the alfalfa pasture up- rooted the alfalfa to a eonslderahle ex- tent. This was not true in the lot which had tankage. This damage to the pasture necessitated considerable expense in reseeding. The Kansas test indicates that the feeding of a small amount of tanltage to pigs fattened on s legume pasture. tmch as alfalfa or clover. Is well worth while. It Is also advisable from the standpoint of protecting the pasture. Good Fattening Ration for Market ockerels Dry mash is as Important in the laying hen's diet In summer as in winter. Many persona feel that the hens will pick their rations, hut this often causes a serious dropping off In production.

Rot Coming Under Control. ']'lie lem-.nd rot fungq:s, which not only causes stem-end rot. hut atso brings about deoay following bruises anti cuts in the rind, has been a source of heavy loss in the past, and is still a factor of great Importance. In 1919 I campaign of education concerning methods of control for this disease was initiated In the Southeastern states, the United States Department of Agriculture and the state extension services co-operating. As a result of the interest taken in this work by farmers, distributors, and railroads, stem-end rot is-coming under control. This conclusion is borne out by rec- ords from the food prods-to inspec- tion service, which indicate that in Georgia shipments losses from stem- ed rot have been eat from 14.4 per cent In 1920 to 8.3 per cent in 1921, and 6.2 per cent in 1922; and ! Flor- Ida shipments from 16.6 per cent in 1920 to 10.1 per cent In 1921 and 5.3 per cent in 1922. Timely 8uggetions. In ord{r that stem-end rot and losses in transit due to other causes may be reduced, farmers should make every effort to carry out the following sug- gestions at harvtst sea(ran : Cl.) If possible avoid working 'hlle the vines are wet. (2.) Never permit labor to handle rotten melons in the field and then work with fruit for shllmaenL (3.) Never permit clipper to handle or to touch knife to rotten melons in the field. (4.) Never permit clipper to eat into melons while pushing knife through the stem. i (5.)

Do not allow labor to stand Cattle and Sheep Often or sit on melons. (10.) Reject melons that do not Contract Shipping Fever! Ca(fie and sheep, while passing through the large stockyards, often contract a disease known as hemor- rhagic septicemia or shtpplng fever. The losses occur most commonly In the fall as cold weather advances and heaviest losses usually occur among stocker and feeding cattle,-although milking cows and sheep [hay be af- fected. The disease is a poisoning of the blood and often runs a short ,ourse and quickly proves fatal. The losses from this disease are very heavy and the United States buread of anlmal industry is (rying to prevent it from spreading. A bulletin has been published which tells how to treat this disease and may be ob- tained free of charge by" writing the United States Department of Agricul- ture, Washington, D. C.

Clear Moss From Fruit Trees by Proper pray Moss can be quite readily cleared from the trees. The solution of strong bordeaux is one of the best sprays. The old formula of lime. sulphur and alt, where the same weight of salt Is used in the spray as of lime and sul- phur, namely 15 pounds to 50 gallons of the concentrated spray, is also very efficient in removing moss. But a sub- stance which is very good to use is common lye. The lye can be used straight by dissolving in plain water. or it can be used In the lime sulphur spray. The rate to rise :s about one Found can of lye for every six or seven gallons of splay. It cleans off the moss quite readily, seems to soften the bark and gives it a dean, bright aP- pearance, Birds Are Not Numerous Because of Insect Pests The chief reason birds are not more !numerous and that insect pests conse- quently increase so rapidly is that suit- able-places are not provided far nest- ing with protection from vermin. Cleaning out fence rows and corners beautifies the premises hut ruins the i blrds' homes. Building houses blrd I and putting them on poles will help to replace the natural homes. But better than this is to leave some small thtck- ets at different spots over the farm.

(Prepared by in* United Satee Deprtment ot Ag :calture.) There is an lllC|'tit-,lDg spread De" tween the l*rouucuun ul tlaxseed In the United States and tile dcluand for: home ct}tisnnqJtiola, according tu tile United tates Department of Agricul- ture. ntti IL ires coutitry produced, on a II art:rage, nlore ilion it cou.,6utned . and therefore wa abi,to export a surplu in nearly every year. lgin- ning with l)'J, however, our produc- tion began to decline, while our re- qUlldlnents began to increase with population. .Net ilnpors consequently have increased. The reduction tn con- sumption in 1917 and 1918 was due to war restrictions, and that in 1920 and 1921 to has|hess depression. It Is fairly certain that the ||gates for 19"2'2, when available, will show an increase in colZsmnption. As the United States changed in po- sition from an exporter to an importer of fl'txseed, the farm price of flax in- creased materially.* In 1907, when a surplus of over 4,0X),000 bushels wa exported, the farm price of fiaxseed on December 1 averaged  cents a bushel. In 1908, when production and consumption were practically equal, the farm price of flaxseed was $1.18 a bushel. In 1909, when 4,957,000 bushels were imported, the farm price rose to $1.53 a bushel. In man}" localities a comparatively small volume of flaxseed Is marketed; dad because the price fluctuates wide- ly, flaxseed usually is bought on a wide margin, and the grower often does not receive the full value of his crop. .This condition could be Im- proved if several growers of fiaxseed In such localities would combine their deliveries and thus market a carload or more at one time. Farm Implements Should Be Placed Under Cover The average farmer does not get ful! value out of the most of the farm Im- plements that he buys for at least two reasons. One ream Is that he has n- place to h,use them. hence they weather--that is, they get wet anti rust or decay. Having implements lay out In the weather a season is worse on them than one season's use. In too many cases the writer has seen farm implements such as plows, cultivators, binders, and many other implements setting in the field here last used. and many times, the shovels of cultivators are even left in the ground. Before using these implements the next season the shovels of cultivators and the various bright parts of the Implements have to be scoured with sand rock before using. This not only takes off a layer of metal but requires a great deal of time. If one will Just think a moment he will know that the work of scouring the implements and getting them ready for use is much more work than tO have cleaned and greased these bright metal parts*with axle grease and painted tle wood and other metal parts when through using the Implements. By doing this the air and water is kept from the metal and wood, hence, the implements will fare well even if left out In" the weather. By W. H. Me.heaters.

Pea Aphis Will Attac] Three Important Crops The, pea aphis is seriously Infesting the entire cannery pea section In Stan- Islaua county, Cal., and a lighter in- festation extend over the Santa Clara valley, according to reports received by the United States Department of Agricultare. This ln:t is also doing considerable damage to alfalfa In the vicinity of Topeka. Karts. The Kan- sas infestation is over a region where the growing of garden peas is rather extensive. The association of alfalfa and peas is suggested .as being favor- able for the multiplication of this in- seat. Infer(aliens by this pea aphis were so seriou on spinach In the Santa Clara valley, Cal., that seven ean- mrles ceased canning this vegetable this spring. The damage was not so much the infestation of the aphis the IFesence of such enormous num- ber's of the syrphtd larvae which prey upon them from the spinach In the washing process. Soy Bean Hay Good for Dairy Cows and Sheep ffoy beans answer the hay questhm very well, particularly for dairy cows and sheep. Yields of soy bean hay are generally from one to one-and-a half tons of hay per acre. but the bay Is of excellent quality and stands weathering better than most hays. The time to cut iS when the leaves be- gin to turn yellow. The best hay va- rieties include the Peking, Wilson and Manchu, although the Manchu will pro- dace nearly as much hay. Fattening Steem Show Ffxed Desire for Salt Animals fed large quantities of rich nutritious food. such as fattening steers receive, show a strong desire for salt. and this craving should bf reasonably satisfied. The foru lr which salt is supplied to steers is merely a matter of convenience. It is probably best to keep salt before tl cattle at all time,, though some ecu exeegent results when they give xe l odly oaee or t Wke ell Requirements Outlined for Good Dairy Ration The requirements of a go.d dairy ratitm are: 1. It must be bal'tnced. 2. It sh.uhi he palatable. 3. It must be laxative. 4. It siJould he sufficiently bulky. 5. It shoubl contain a variety of feeds. 6. It must be adapted for milk productl,m 7. It slmuld be of lowest p-ssible cost. In order to fe,.d cows eoonomiea]ly It Is essential that the roughage be pr.duced on the farm. Home grown feeds cost tss than If pure|rased. Many faruls can also i)roduce some grain feeds. A good cow will require the follow- ing feed for a year: Roughage--4 tons stlage, 1 tons legume hay--alfalfa, cowpeas or pea- nut; 1 ton sudan sorghum or kafir, fed green when pastures are dry or an extra ton of siltage provided for the dry season; 1 acre wheat, oats or rye, for winter pasture. Grain Ratbm--7tX) pounds corn, kafir or barley chop; 400 pounds cottonseed meal or peanut meal; 200 pounds wheat bran. (Some ground oats can be substituted if desired, or the amount of bran increased, depend- ing upon the roughage a'allable.) Heavy milk producers may eed some grain even when on a good grass pasture. A Jersey cow giving the following amounts of milk p day can profitably be fed rain as .,dl- cated: 20 pounds nZl'k, 3 pounds grain; 30 pounds milk., 5 pounds grain ; 40 pounds milk, 8 pounds grain. Holstein cows: 25 ptnds mlilL 3 pounds grain; 35 pour'tls milk, 5/ pounds grain; 45 poCnds milk, 9 pounds grain. A balanced ration f dairy cows may be calculated by consulting a table o! digestible nutents ually found in books on feedfng and con- sidertng the feeds avaPtble and oh. talnable. Here are a few help In making a dairy ration, suggested Oy profealme Bast: 1. After balancing O grain ntlx- tare for the nverage co  the herd, mix enough eor a week's supply. 2.

Cheese Lags in Bigger Use of Dairy Products (Prepared by the United Stat Departn.nt of Agriculture.: While the eonsumptic' of dairy products in te United tates is In- creasing, there is still roCn for dal" interests to exlmml thro?4h creating nn increase In the con-'-umvtlon of cbeese, says the United S,tes Depart- ment of Agriculture. A;though the American people arexrge eatern of butter compared with European peo- ples. they consume relatively m-nell amounts of cheese. The consumption of cheese is approximately 3.8 pounds per person, while In some European countries the consumption Is four or five times this amount. Cheese of the American Cheddar type Is chiefly man- ufaetured In this country, but there ts a demand for cheese of foreign vao tie(lea, especially hy persons who have come from foreign emmtries. Before the war more than 60.000.000 pounds of cheese, or approximately one-fifth am much as was produced of all vari- eties In this country, was Imported aI1nuaily. ]kacreaslng the consumfitlon of cheese offers large opportunities far the development of the dairy industry. If the people of this cmmtry would consume as much cheese per capita as the Dane. the Englishman. the Hol- ' lander, the German, or the Frenchman, or half as much aa the Swiss, It would create a market for 9.000,000,- 000 ponnds of milk more than is re- 0aired at the present time.
