The experiment was in charge of Dr. C. H. Eckles, chief of the division of dairy, and T. W. Gul- lickson, a member of his staff. The change from the whole milk to the skimmJlk powder was .made at the age of three weeks, they report. At the end of 60 days the skimmilk pow- der was gradually withdrawn from the ration. From the age of 70 days the calves were fed alfalfa hay and standard grain mixture. At six t months of age they were somewhat below normal, but attained the nor-| real condition in both weight and[ height by the age of eight months. Ten pounds of powdered skmmilk! added to 90 pounds of water will l make 1.00 pounds of normal skimmilk. The powder can be bought for 10 i cents the pound. The grain ration consisted of four parts of corn, one of bran and one of linseed. This mix-! ture serves the purpose just as we]l l as more expenmve commercial calf! meals, says Dr. Eckies. i To raise the calf with the minimum! amount of milk was the motive of the l experiment. The .milk of 45 outbf every 100 cows kept in the United where milk "is marl' in this way are confronted byzserious .problem in raising the necessary nunber of calves to mai%ain their'herds.

Farmers will sell w0od at the fol- lowing prices: $4.50 to $5.75 for dry .000 lbs. and the aver- tamarack; $5.00 for birch and elm; production 400 lbs., all by $6.00 for oak.

The St. Paul office of the Min- nesota Federation offers the use of its facilities for marketing the product. We would be glad to serve farm com- munities or dealers in sections where wood is not available locally." Several county agents from the Northern part of the state are con- ducting negotiations with fuel deal- ers in the Twin Cities and expect to market several carloads.

"U" COMPLETES MOLDY l00ltl SILAGE EXPERIMENT Moldy silage fed to cattle, horses l and sheep at the Minnesota Experi- ment station, University Farm, by dairy division men, cooperating with university plant pathologists and vet- erinarians in conducting feeding tests, i caused no sickness or apparent ill ef- fects among the animals. In fact,! some of them seemed to thrive upon the prescribed diet. Only the sheep registered occasional protests against the daily menu. Horses and cattle apparently relished it after the first week. A great variety of moldy silage, sent to the farm from various parts of the state, was fed to the stock. To make the experiment as thorough as possible drenches which were fair- ly alive with molds in a growing con- dition were administered. Then the scientists sat back and waited, but nothing happened. The experiments, running several months, were prompted by many in* qniries concerning moldy silage and the dangers supPosed to be connect- ed with it in feeding. Twenty pounds of it were fed daily for about four Like Any Mortal We are mightily pleased because the public speaks so well of us.

Build a Barn For Your Cows With the widespread interest in dairying, you must know that ev- entually many in this community will go more extensively into the business. An important require- ment is a good barn, well planned and built from good material. Here's where we come in--we can provide the plans for the kind of a barn you will need and suggest nu- merous conveniences you will find worthwhile. Come in and talk this over any time.
