A setback or slump in growth ls costly and difficult to over- come, the New York state agricultural college at Ithaca ires found. Many good calves have been well fed and well grown until weaned, and then when turned out to pasture, have been uezlecti and stunted. Often tills stunting is permanent, and undersized cows result. It Is usually better not to turn calves out to pasture until after they are weaned, as it is much easier to feed and care for them in the barn. Some farmers never pasture calves born af- ter January 1, during the first summer. By this omens they avoid heat and flies, which keep young calves from growing In summer. Any pasture intended for calves should have plenty of water and plenty of shade. If possible, It should be lo- cated near the barn in order to make It convenient to watch over the calves, provide salt and give feed. They should have some grain at least once a day, if normal growth Is expected. In most cases about two pounds is enough for each calf. The following mixture is recommended: Three hun- dred pounds cornmeal, hominy feed or ground barley, 300 pounds ground oats, 300 pounds wheat bran. hotel as formerly I'll need seven, One hundred pounds of linseed ell dresses; whereas If we have a car I meat may be added to this with good can get one dress and we'll go to seven results, and it is advisable to do so "Before taking Tanlae," said Mr T.

After the calves reach an age of nine to ten months, grain feeding de- pends entirely upon the condition af the pasture. If t is plentiful, green and succulent, good growth can be 013- rained without grain. But if it Is short and rifled up, It should be supplement- ed by the concentrate feeds. State Averages of Age at Which Cows Are Sold (Prepitred by the United States Department of Arlcult ure.) The average age of milch cows whe slaughtered for beef is ten years, and the price realized for such cows Is about one-half the price brought by younger cows sold for milking pur- poses, according to a natlon-wlde in- vestigation of present conditions made this year by the United States Depart- men; of Agriculture. State averages of the age at which cows are sold for slaughter were re- markably uniform, there being no state with an average under nine years and no state with an ayerage over eleven yearS. States showing an average of eleven years were Mary- land, West Virginia, Finds, Wiscon- sin, Louisiana, Utah and Nevada. States with an average of nlne years were New Hampshire, Connecticut, South Carolina, Georgia and Alabama. In the early spring this year, when the survey was made, milch cows showed an average sale price of $32 per head hen sold for slaughter, 6r about 50 per cent of the average price of $63 for cows sold at the same time for milking purposes. Tell Value of Sire by Production of Progeny The wisest dairyman in the world esnnot tell a prepotent bull by his looks or by his breeding. There Is no known way of telling t valuable sire only by hill progeny. If hls heif- ers are better producers thpn their dams he is a good ball--worth his weight In tid, but If his hetferS are me Improvement over their dams, or if not so good, then he is worthle as a sire. Who can tell what the result will be when you mate an unknown bull wth poor cows? No man can. The most pro-feet Individual, according to stand- erda, might be ahselutely and If his sire was a proved preptent bull and his dam had a world's record he might not have this unknown, mys- terious power of prtency. He mlght transmit undmalle luailttes instead of desirable ones. DAIRY NOTES The time to traIn cows to eat well Of roughage is when they are young.

(Prepared by the nted Staten DeIertmeut of Agriculture.) Experiments to determine the in- fluence of space between hills of corn on the 5ield per plant and per acre have been conducted for several years by the United States 1-epartmeut of Agriculture, and tile results published In Department Bulletin 157, now ready for distribution. The results are of particular Interest to those por- tions of the United States where both the single-ear and prolific types of corn are more or less commonly grown. Two Varieties Described. The single-ear type Ls described as having resulted from continuous selec- tion toward one large ear per stalk, al- though under favorab,'e conditions two well-developed ears may be produced. As contrasted with the sing!c-ear type, the prolific Is distinguished by the normal production of more than one ear per stalk. The ears usually are smaller. As both types are grown extensively, It is of agronomic Interest to know which yields more efficiently under ordinary feld conditions where the production of the plants is likely to be influ- enced by irregularity of stand and by the inequalities of germination, soil, and growing conditions. The purpose of the present lnvestlgatlo was to study the reaction of these types un- der conditions that provided a wide range in the environment, obtained in thls case by altering the spacing of the plants. Prolific More Productive. In these experiments the prolific type was more productive than the single- ear type. It also was more efficient in increasing the yield per plant and in increasing the number of ears per plhnt. While the single-err'type was more efficient in increasing the weight of the ear, the prolific type produced a larger yield per acre because Increas- ing the number of ears was more effec- tive than increasing the weight of the individual ears. The experiments indicate that in sections to which both types are adapt- ed In general the prolific wtll be the more productive under conditions of general field culture because of its bet- ter adjustment to varying conditions.

Use of Acid Phosphate Does Not Injure Soil Not infrequently the fear Is ex- pressed that the continued use of acid phosphate on land will Increase the sourness of the soil. Experimental evidence, however, shows that this fear Is unfounded. In fact, there is evidence to show that it has a slight tendency to reduce the acidity. A number of experiments have been conducted in which heavy application of acid phosphate were made on cer- tain plots for a long period of years. The results show that these plots are not as sour as plots receivIng no treat- meat. The term "acid phosphate" is pri- marily a trade name; derived, from the fact that It Is made by treating raw phosphate wlth sulphuric acid. This name has been largely respon- sible for the erroneous opinion. There is nothing in the material which will injure the soft. Its use may confldentl$ be expected to produce entirely bene- ficial results. Grade or Scrub Bulls Used in This Country Low. Average Milk Produc- tion Per Cow Is Result. (PrDered by ,h,. Ur!t-t S,ares Department of Agriculture.) Seventy-five per cent of the dair bulls in use in the United States are either grades or scrubs. They are bulls from antestry that has not been bred generatit,n after generation for larffe and economical prodlhction Ot milk anti butterfat. This fact, says the United States lepartment of Agricul- ture, ace:rants for the low average pro- duction per cow in dls country. In 1921, there were less thun 80,000 purebred bull calves registered by the breed assochttious. But this probably does not represent half the purebred trolls born in 1921. The 8U,000 or more that were not registered, were probably i slaughtered because their breederS were not able to market them profit- ably. This Is because the average farmer is not yet convinced of the ad- vantages to be derived from the use of purebred sires. If every purebred bull calf born in this country were raised, it would take a three or four years' crop of calves to replace the grade and scrub bulls (numbering approximately 60,000) that are being used in dairy herds. When It Is considered that not all purebred calves are worthy .of be- Ing used, even on grade herds, and allowance is made for the normal death rate and other factors that enter to cut down the number of purebred bulls raised, the above estimate ot three or four years could safely be In- creased to five or six years as the time that would be required to replace the scrub bulls. Only 3 per cent of our dairy cattle are purebred, and the supply of pure- bred bulls would be wholly Inadequate if the farmers of the cuntry could only appreciate the benefit It would be to them to head their producing herds with pu.bred sires of good pro- ducing strains. /i Feeding Pigs Skim Milk Makes Them Gain Faster The animal husbandry department of the New Serey agricultural ex- periment station recently conducted a feeding trial with skim milk for mar- ket pigs. Two lots of ten pigs each used. The pige were of sim- ilar age, weight and breeding at the outset. Lot No. 1 received shelled corn. wheat mlddlings, and dlseed tanknge. Lot No. 2 received the same feeds, plus 50 pounds of skim milk pe r day. A slf-eder supplL. the '/dfi tlo's for both lots. The . crease in gains, made by th skim- milk lot oer the cost Of the grain the feeding of five pounds of skim milk per pig at a cot of 3 cents per hundred pounds for the milk. Furthermore, the pigs grew faster and were ready for the market at a much earlier date. The skim milk should be pastuer- ised, if from tubercular cows, as pigs at thls age are highly susceptible to the. disease. There Is practically no difference between feeding the milk sweet or sour, so long as one method Is adhered to regularly. Milk Is Valuable Feed toKeep Chicks Healthy Mlik is a valuable feed for young chicks, as it not only stimulates the many forces required for normal growth but aids in the prevention of diseases. Sour milk or buttermilk in many cases actually proves a remedy for coccldiosls, the most dreaded of all chick diseases. As long as the chicks can be kept growing rapidly they are less suscep- tible to disease of any kind, but e peeiaily to coccldloais and It is largely on account of its aid in warding off this disease that many poultry raisers ! have come to consider milk as being i essential for chicks during the first eight weeks. 8sit for Farm Animals. It is generally agreed among scin- tists and practical stock men that salt should be supplied regularly to farm animals. Milk cows and sheep need the largest amounts of. salt; fatten- Prosperity of Farming Depends on Live Stock IAve stock provides an outlet for three-fifths of the crop acreage In the Uni.eql States, besitles 65,(),t0 acres of improved pasture, 17L}0,() acres of unimproved grass hind pastnre, 175,- C),(:) acres of w,lland pasture, and ).(l,t,) acres (,f grazing land in the arid and semi-arid sections of the West, according to C.

All told, live st,ck furnisled an outlet for 80 per cent of the total fired and feed produced by tame and wild vegetation in the United States. Live stock, by utlllzing advanta- geously and efficiently the various pas- ture and forage cro, makes possible a system of crop rotation that aids ma- terially In maintaining soil fertility and etmtroiltng plant diseases, insects and weeds. Live stock provides, in the form of manure, the most reliable and practl- eel fertilizer that can be used to main- tain soil fertility. The production of grain takes from the soil large amounts of phosphorus, potash and nltroge When grain is sold off the farm where produced these elements of fertility ape completely lost, but when grain Is fed to live stock 80 per cent of the phosphors, potash and nitrogen is re- turned to the soil in the form of ma- nure. Manure also adds to the soft ttmt necessary onstltuent humus which commercial fertilizers do not.
