WOODVILLE. MISSISSIPPI  Fema][e Purebreds Showing ]Increase = On Many Farms Scrubs Have Practically Disap- peared From Flocks. OPtgred by the United St&tee Department of Agriculture.) When farmers adopt purebred sires to head their herds and flocks it is not long before the percentage of pure- bred females increase notably. This encouraging tendency toward more rapid improvement of live stock has been brought about by the United States Department of Agriculture in the "Better Sires--Better Live Stock" campaign. Scrubs Disappear. Of a total of more than 300,000 fe- male animals listed by farmers who have agreed to keep nething but pure- bred sires, more than 35 per cent are of pure breeding. On these farms scrubs have practically disappeared. For the larger animals the reports show that only 2.4 per cent of the fe- males are scrubs, and, of course, the males are of pure blood, as that is the basis on which the farms are listed. The poultry flocks owned by these farmers are particularly well bred, only 1.3 per cent of tbe female birds being listed as scrubs. More than 68 per ce4;t of a total of 610,000 birds are entered on the list s standard bred. Among the herds of swine there are very few scrub sows---only 1.1 per cent. Nearly-two thirds of them are purebred. The federal-state effort to Improve the live Stock and Imlto- of tbe coun- try has now brough in a membership Consumption of Milk Shows Big Increase arly 103 Billion Pounds as Made Use of in 1922. (Prepatred by tha United Btates DePartment of Asrlcult ur ;t *Did you consume 945 pounds of whole milk In some form vr other last year? According to the United States Department of Agriculture nearly 103 billion pRunds of whole milk wan used in 1922 in the production of butter, cheese, ice cream, milk chocolate and various other milk products, including 47 billion pounds consumed aa milk. The quantity of whole milk used In 1921 was approximately 99 billion pounds, which includes 45 billion pounds consumed as milk. ,, Consumption of milk for household pnrposes increased from 49 gallons per capita in 1921 to 50 gallons in 1922, according to the department's figures. Consumption by city folks increased two gallons per capita, but lack of-any Increased consumption in rural communities pulled down the average increase for the country as a whole to one gallon. A big increase In conmmptlon of milk chocolate is shown. 100 million pounds of wholemilk being used for this purpose in 1922 as compared with 40 million pounds in 1921. The number of milk cows on farms January I, 19o..3, is pissed at 24.429.000 as compared with 24.082,000 cows on farms January 1, 1922. To the aver- age of these two figures is added 1,50.000 cows In towns, making a total of 2.5,505.000 milk cows produc- ing approximately 1(3 billion pounds of whole milk or an average produc- tion of 4,209 pounda per cow. Aver- age production per cow in 1921 was 3,945 pounds. Extensive Experiments With Apples for Swine The Washington State college has found that cull apples are worth $19" a ton as hog feed. Extensive experi- ments were cenducted the past year. Pigs which weighed 94.8 pounds each at the start of the experiment gained in weight 66.1 pounds each, or an av- erage of 1.88 pounds per day. Each t )ig was fed an average of 4.22 pounds ! of apples and 4.17 pounds of grain per i day. It was found that the apples aved, per every 100 pounds of gain, campaign that represents n,-arly a mil- lion head of anlnmls and poultry. Farmers who have be('oH!e members have sent in interestLg ac(.ounts of their experiences in lml,r.Jving their animals and their bank accounts. Other farmers who are taking part In the work are invited by the department to send in their Individual experiences an well as those of community organiza- tions engaged in the improvement of live stock. Definite facts and figures should be included whenever possible Cabbage Will Respond Nicely to Use of Lime The gardener and orchardist Is constantly surprised at the responsive- hess of plant life. S(,me plants re- spond to one treatment and some an- other, but certain It is that the requirements of each kind of crop grown must be studied rather than to treat all alike. In the study of fertIIlzer require- ments by the Ohio extmriment Station both at Wooster and Marietta It is an outstanding fact that cabbage will re- spond markedly to the use of lime. Where one ton of ground limestone is applied to tt,e land each year, and no other treatment Is given there has been an average Increase far eight years of 1% tons of cabbage. In con- trast to this the tomatoes Lave given only a little over one-fourth ton In- erease Likewise, when lime is ued wlth either manure or chemicals the increase from lime is striking. It is n colncldence that lime is also a spe- cific for club-r(mt c.f cabbage and glve addltin'd reason for aDplyUlg IL Sldnach is .ntb.r crop that will glve a big return for the use of lime on an acid soil. The difference be- tween limed and unllmed spinach Is so great as to lead one to ink heavy manuring or fertilizing was the cause. Fertilizers Should Not Be Used as Substitute "Fertilizers should be emplayed In addition to and not In place of other good soil-management practices," says Prof. A. T. Wtaneko of the Purdue expriment station. "Legumes in the rotation, the use of manure or other organic matter, drainage and liming where needed are all perquisites to the most satisfactory use of fertlllz- erlL" Results of a long-time experiment on a corn-wheat-clover rotation at the Purdue station illustrates this point. The treatment and results were as follow: Plot 1--Limed 1912 and 1920, six tons manure on corn crop, 19.2 busheh, wheat per acre. Plot 2--Same as plot 1 wlth 200 pounds per acre acld phosphate on corn crop, 20.5 bushels wheat per acre. Plot 3---Same as plot 2 with 200 pounds per acre 2-8-4 on wheat crop, 26.7 bushels wheat per acre The significant thing about these results is that In plot S, the combina. tion of a good rotation, legume& lime and manure produced conditions re- suiting in large returns from the use of a suitable complete fertilizer. In other words, as shown by plot 1. the rotation, legumes, lime and manure produced a favorable condition but, compared to the others a small crop. The addition of complete fertilizer on plot 3 was all that was needed to push the crop into a new field of profits. - Angle of Campaign to Eradicate TubeFculosis An Important angle of the campaign to eradicate tuberculosis from cattle is shown by the figures on the occur- rence of this disease in hogs. In 1922. one out of every seven pigs slaugh- tered under federal supervision showed lesions of tuberculosis. A good deal of tbe meat was consid- ered fit for food. but more than $2.000,- 000 worth was condemned. Hogs got the disease from tattle. Every herd of cattle that is cleaned up means the same improvement in the hog In- dustry. Use Manure Economically to Get Largest Returns Best evidence indicates that manure 4.09 pounds of tankage. 31.7 pounds gives largest returns to the ton when of millrnn and 94.42 pouuds of barley.

About 17 per cent of the =natured dairy aninmls iu this country find their way to the slaughter and packing plants, accord!ng to ttle United States Department of Agriculture. If this percentage is applied to the number of matured dairy animal reported on farina b) the last census, and the av- erage live weights and dressing yields are used In calculating the beef prO- duction, the result shows about 1.502,- 450.000 pounds of carcass beef pro- ducked from dairy cattle during the year 1920. This quantity repretuents more than 23 per cent of the total beef pro- duotlon of the United States for that year. Probably 80 per cent of all the calves staughterel are of dairy tlreed- Ins. If this mrcentae is applied to the total number of calves slaughtered In 19"20 and the resulting fgure multi- plied by the average live weight and dressing yields, the amount of veal pro- dated by dairy calves is about 560,647,- (,tO0 lu,unds for the year 19"20. Tile principal conditions which cause dairy cows to be dls.arded for milk production purposes are old age, dis ease. physical defects, low milk yield, and sterility. Many old dairy cog's and otlers that are unprofitable as milk producers are fattened for a short period and then )ld for beef. Wheu properly fed such cows make r=p,d gains, although the tendency is to ac- cumulate fat externally and in the bod,y <tvitles rather than to produce a welb marbled flesh. Abtmt 8,5 per cent of the cow carcasses are graded as com- mon or lower, and the meat Is used largely in the prepsr;'on of sausage and canned meat. Bulls that are no longer desired In the herd for various reasons make up s part of the meat from dairy cattle- They are seldom suitable for dressed beef, a large proportion of the rounds being used for drled or smoked beet and the remaining portl0LS of the car- casses for sausage. While the quality of beef produced from mature cows and blls is of lower grade, that is not necessarily true with respect to the veal obtained from dairy eslves. Probably 95 per cent of the male and 50 per cent of the female dairy calves are slaughtered as ealve. Most of these animals. If properly ham died and slaughtered whiie young, pro- duce a high grade of veal. Comfort in Hot Weather Necessary for Dairy Cow Iwing the hot summer months many high producing cog's are pre- vented from giving their normal sup- ply of milk by carelessness of their owner in not supplying some one of the many necessary comforts for hot weather milk and butterfat produo. lion. One of the most common of these is the furnishing of drinking water. A cow In milk requires about 100 pounds, or 12.5 gallons, of water daily, and heavy producin cows frequently double this amount. During hot weather a cow must have the normal supply of water and an added amount "When my baby began to cut his teeth he was so fretful and fever/st| I couldn't do a thing with him. It took all my time to nurse him and I couldn't look after my housework," writes Mrs. Annie Reeves, Route 3], Ros,eil, Ga., "but as soon as I bega, giving hire Teethina he stopped fret- ting and has given me little trouble since." Teethlna is far superior to sooth- ing syrups and similar preparations for quieting a fretful child. It con- tains no opiates and is therefore per- fectly harmless.

Instructions Not Needed. necessary for adjusting her supply from norms! to hot weather needs. The question of how often cows should be watered, when they are not kept with a constant supply before them, varies with the condition of the weather, kind of feed. etc. It is safe to say, however, that cows in milk should have water at least three times day. Profitable Cow Ought t0 Produce Much Milk It is pointed out by successful dally. men that to be profitable a cow ought to produce at least 5,000 pounds ot[ milk In a year. In producing this quan- try of milk, her butterfat would amount to about 200 pounds. In addl. tion to the tale of bttterfat, the skimmed milk, the manure, and th calf must be reckoned as of value. Daily Water Supply Is of Greatest Importance Cows which produce 25 pounds of milk a day reqnlre 75 pounds or more of water dlly, srnd instances are on record tn which heavy milkers haw consumed more than 300 pounds of wa- ter a day. A gallon of water weighs eight- pounds. Young Calves Should Be Fed Good Grain Ration Young calves should be fed grain aS soon as they will eat it.
