EXPERIMENT STATION NOTES
By H. K. Dean
Cost of Butterfat
The Oregon Experiment Station
has recently completed an exhaustive
study of the cost of producing but
terfat. While these studies were
for Willamette Valley conditions
they bring out certain truths which
apply to our conditions. It was
found that the average production
requirement per pound of butterfat,
covering some 1500 cows, was suc
culentg, 34 pounds; hay, 18 pounds;
grain and millfeed, 8 pounds; labor,
15 minutes. These feeds gave a bet
ter balanced ration than we usuall
feed. The more nearly a ration is
balanced to the cows' requirements
tho more economical is the produe
Hon so it is likely that the total
nui'rients required to pr yduce a pound
of butterfat under our conditions
where in general we do not feed sue
CUlenta or grain, is rather high
The limiting factor in our dairy sue
cess now is feeding. Until we havi
root crops or silage for winter feet'
and pastures for summer the ultl
