"' , '"" '" s,........, More Summer Fattening of Cattle Is Suggested More summer feeding of young cat- tle for market is suggested by W. H. Peters of te animal industry division, Minnesota College of Agriculture. who has been watching market quotations on grain-fed cattle and finds that they are higher now than at any time yet this year. Market reports for the last ten years also show. he says, that in- variably good grain-fed cattle, espe- 'lally yearlings, have sold for high prices through AugusL September and October of each year. He believes there is a suggestion in this circum- stance that should be used to advan- tage by Minnesota farmers. Professor Peters does not overlook the objections raised to the fattening of cattle on grain through the summer months There is. of course, the dif- ficulty of secnrlng suitable feeder eat- tie in the aping. Ordinarily cattle on feed do not make gd gains through the hot weather and fly season: also, all available labor on the farm is need- ed" for farm-crps work through the summer season. BUt he believes It Is possible to overcome these objections, and against them there is the great advantage of a high price for the fin- lhed product through the late sum- mer and early fall months. "Summer feedImz." he ays, "should perhaps be confin,d to yearlings or baby beeves, as tt is the handy weight fat beefy carcas from the 1,000 to L- L--pound steer tha is in greatest de- mand through the gummer and early fall By starting In wlth a group of go heefy calves In the fail when they are weaned and carrying them through tke winter on alfalfa or dover hay and silage wlth a medium grain ration, not getting them on full feed until in April or May and then push- Ing them until sold in August or Sep- tember, the feeding of such cattle ,'an be accomplished economically. Many! feeders of baby beef cattle would be money ahead had they carried cattle that were sold last May and June until now. "By giving year!tug cattle the run of a darkened, well-bedded shed during the da.vtlme In summer, so as to pro- tact them from the file& and turning them out to a good grass past'are at night, at the same time keeping them In s full-Teed of grain, they will make almost as good gains as In wnter; The labor of caring for them Is also some- what le and the usual higher price received for grain-fed cattle In late summer and early fall will more than make up the difference In the higher cost of labor and glower galtm made." Prejudice Against Heavy Lambs in Many Quarters Of late years there has been a growing prejudice among consumers against heavy lambs. There Is no doubt that the texture of meat of a large animal Is coarser than that of a small one, but. the difference is so slight that it would taJte a scientist to diteover it. The real trouble Is that in certain quarters the word lamb has be- come rather elastic. It has been ap- plied to sheep of all ages with the rult that the consumer feels It safest to purchase the smallest spec- imens he can find and is ummlly will- ing to pay more for this kind. In reality lambs are no exception to the general rule. Small animals of other classes are not usually pre- ftwred to large ones. There Is no doubt that lamb properly _grown up to 175 or 150 pounds" weight ,is better food than the same lamb marketed at 90 or I00 pounds, At the later weight he should be consumed without any eagle- Sometimes the heavier breeds are marketed tn an nnflnlgbed condition for the purpose of keeping the weight 1 within what is considered the margin i of safety. This practice should be di- I coUraged for the quality of meat pro- duced must certainly be of a low class. The way to overcome the difficulty with Iambs of heavy breeds is to begin to feed them for market a couple of months younger than Is necessary wlh the smaller breed Question of Labor in Considering Fall Pigs If fall pigs are being cosldered" the question of labor arises. They might perhalm require a board or two nailed over the cracks In the old hoghoue. or a little more bedding and a little more energy spent occasionally In trig that their wants are properly gupplled. But theme items ave well taken care of as labor at that time of the year. vis. tats fall and winter, h forced by nature to take thlng more or less easy.

To enable dairymen to plan their operations in the light of future pros- pacts as indicated by avallahle sta- Ustics on current milk production. prices, stocks, and changes in dairy herds, the United States Department of Agriculture is inaugurating a spe- cial reporting service In the leading dairying state& A tentative plan of reporting has heen drawn up and is to be tried out in an experimental way in New England. New York and Wisconsin. An effort will be made to forecast as far in advance as po. sible the number of dairy cows on farms and prospective milk produC- tion. information Requested. Thousands of dairymen in the vari- ous states are to be requested to re- port each month to the department the number of dairy cows and heifers on farms at the end of the month, to- gether with the number of heifers and calves under a year old being raised for dairy tows. Information will also be obtained regarding the number of dairy cows and heifers bred each month, the number of heifers freshening with their first calves and the number of other cows freshening each month. An effort will be made to obtain in- formation as to sales of dairy cows and heifers fo slau;hter, as well as the number of deaths monthly. Fig- ures will be obtained ou the produc- tion of milk and the number of eowa milked. It is expected that a suffi- ciently large number of dairymen can be induced to co-operate in the work to provide the basis for state-wide es- timates. The new service Is In resnse to a l long-felt need for more complete In- i formation concerning the trend of the dairy industry. Dairymen have been watching with Interest the progress of the system worked out by file depart- meat with regard to live stock and at, 'results became den!laMe an increas- ing number of dairymen nd milk pro- ducers' asciations have requested the department to inaugurate a sim- Ilar system In the dairy Industry. At the present time approximately 80.00 farmers cooperate In the live-stock service and it Is plann! to Increase the number to 50.000. A departure of Interest to dairymen will be to request, live-stock producers to report separ- ately the number of cattle of the beef type. It IS planned also to include in the dairy reports Information concern. tug feed and pasture conditions. CO-OlmPatlen Urged. All dalrymn are urged tO eo-opete with the Deartmmt of Agriculture in this new work by promptly filling out the reports received from the depart- meal All individual reports will be considered confidential, only totals and percentages of change from month to month to--be published. Each dairyman reporting will receive per- sonal copies of the final monthly state- ment issued by the department to- gether with the statistics of various dairy products manufacture, stocks In ltorage, and market Information gathered from manufacturers, dis. trtbutors and handlers of dairy products. Kill SMped Cucumber Beetle With Nicotine Cucuml3ers. squash, pumpkins, and the related crops can be protected from the inroads of the striped cu- cumber beetle by applying a fourth to s half ounce of nicotine dust, con- taining four per cent nicotine, to each hill. The dust not only kills the in- sects that come in contact with It, but tt acts as a repellent. If it Is applied properly it drives the beetle from the cracks tn the soil at the base of the #ant, and so prevents very serious injury. Even a cheese cloth sack wlth which to dust the vines Is efficient on a small area. but a larger area will pay for a reular duster. Such a duster also aDplles the powder in such a way that beetles cannot escape de, etruction by flight. Contented Cows Always Make Highest Returns In the barn of a large and weft equipped dairy In Wisconsin is a large placard cotmplcuomfly posted which reads : "No Swearing Allowed--These Are Contented (ows." "It Is a stringent Pule on all our Stock farms," says the manager, "that harsh laaguage or unklndnen toward the cattle is absolutely for- bidden. Strange as It may seem. a cow is as responsive to pleatmnt treatment as a human being In. If you are mean to a cow she L pretty apt to return the meanness. Tbere- fore we preach hove optimism. We keep our cows contented and we find they give more and hatter milk." It Is Difficult Task to Determine Age of Cow It.is more difficult to determine the age of a cow than of a horse. A cow's age may be determined from her teeth and horns. The number of "an- nual rings" on the horns, plus two. for example, usually gives the animal's age, but remembering that the pairs of nine motha of Agriculture ) Because of the persistence of foot- and-mouth disease in England, tim United States Department of Agrtcul- turn has been unahle to LLft the ban against the impartation of live stock from that country. American import- er of live stock had hoped that the outbreak of the disease which occurred on April , would be the last. and the department had giveu them reason to believe that permits for bringing in cattle, sheep, and swine from England would be issued after July L but the report of a new outbreak made it necessary to continue the embargo. This actiou of the department Is hardship on American importers wh@ would bring in stock from Engtand, but the welfare of the entire live-stock Industry In the United States demands that the utmost care be exercised ha keeping out such a dangerous enemy as foot-and-mouth disease. No impor- tations of ruminants and swine are permitted from countries where this plague is well established. In coun- tries where there are occasional out- breaks, England for example, the en- tire country must be free for period I. of 60 days before shipments may Im made to thls country. Destroy Weeds in Soy Bean Field While Youiag Farmers who are growing soy beans will find that It Is highly important to kill the weds while the plants are very young. Crops men at Iowa State college recommend cultivating the 7sung beans with the common harrow, rotary hoe or weeder. Soy beans are very hardy plants and, ext'ept for the time when they are Just coming through the ground arid are making their first two inches of growth, they may be harrowed regularly without being damaged. The college men ad- vise cultivating often until the beans are eight to ten inches high. Speclatl care should be given the cultivation when the beans are eight to ten Inches tall. A rotary hoe or weeder is effective In cultivating the beans and has an ad- vantage over the harrow in that It can be used'throughout a longer season. The Important thing, however, Is to keep the weeds out, regtardless of the Implement treed. Spread Manure on Land as Fast as It Is Made The very best way to get all of the value out of the manure on the farm is to put it on the land Just as fast u it is made. Manure ioes a large ImXt of its fertilizing value before It i used when It Is plied out of doors all summer, waiting for  peetal .

Am a matter of fact, experiments have hown that manure allowed to remain in piles through three, four or five months In the sum- mer frequently loses from a third to two-thrids of Its total fertilizing value. This is too serious a loss to be al- lowed to pass unheeded.
