Department of Agriculture and co

association In Webster county, Mo.,
w itli :S1 members. Now there fire twice
that nn.ny members, due to the suc
cess and usefulness of the association.
Before the association was formed
there were 18 bulls owned by the; men
who afterwards Joined it. Upon the
formation of the organization the num
ber of hulls wus reduced by two
thirds, because after the members had
been arranged tato blocks, it was
found thai six bulls were enough.
These were much liner animals, haw
ever. Judging them by their money
value, the new ones weft three or four
times as good as the ones they re
placed, since the average Investment
per lUU was $75 before organization,
arid $2Tfl nfler. ,
,Yet, OVi in.; to the smaller number of
mils needed HO ler the co operative BP
angeinent, the cost per former was
,ut little more. The members hud on
the average $48.71 invested in their in
ferlnr bulls, while the superior bulls
owned by the association cost each
member onlyi S63.45, This $10 in
craase of cost per member meant a
$200 Increase of value In the Indi

Think K Over
The posting of a notice on
the fence corner may have its
virtues, but lew people have the
inclination to get out of their
automobiles or tie up their teams
to read a poorly composed ad
tacked up on a ftneepoet. The
same notice, perhaps at a cost
not to exceed "." to 50 cents,
might be placed before a thou
sand fanners who would be per
mitted to read it while spending
the evening around the parlor
table, with plenty of time to
think it over.

Dairymen Dissatisfied With Commer
cial Materials Are Turning to
Co-operative Buying.
"Farmers nre almost universally dis
satisfied with mixed commercial feeds
iiiui are depending more on mixing
their own rations," savs Henry Me
Oough, chairman of the dairy commit
tee of the Illinois Agricultural associa
tion, lie ndds: "They arc nil inter
ested in the co-operative buying of
mill feeds such BS bran, cottonseed
meal tod glttten and St times when
there is a shortage In roughages In
the purchase of alfalfa hay."
Commercial mixed feeds ought to
give more satisfactory results because
the manufacturers with their improved
machinery for mixing, large capital
mid ability lo purchase feeds nnd
drains in huge Quantities should be
able to Supply I satisfactory feed at
h reasonable price. Oat bulls, weed
seeds, chaff nnd cheap molasSSS do
not mai;e a nourishing or satisfactory
feed and their extensive use hy some
mixers has brought these disparaging
remarks from Mr. Met Sough.

Carelessness in Breeding and Calf
Raising Is Sure to Result Dis
astrously to Herd.
Success in dairy Canning depends
to a great extent upon the careful
rearing of the cuives. Carelessness In
breeding SBd calf raising is hound to
result disastrously to a herd, or at
least keep it nt a standstill, as far as
Improvement is concerned, Without
raising calves from which' to replace
discarded animsts it is almost impos
sible to raise the average production
of the herd. Purchasing cows for this
purpose is a very unsatisfactory meth
od. Cows placed on the market are
almost certain to lie of very ordinary
grade, since a good cow whose value
ns a milk producer is known Is not
offered for sale nt market price.
Therefore, the dairy farmer should
take every precaution in handling the
young CSlveS which are to lie placed
in the herd.
