The calves must nurse their dams
and be given an abundance of nu
tritious grain from the very start,
both while on pasture and when In
winter quarters. Concentrated feeds
In addition to clover and alfalfa are
absolutely necessary during the win
ter months. Long nursing on the
dams or an abundance of milk or
skim milk with grain is necessary.
This all means that splendid, well-
bred stock is to be used only. It
means also that you have got to have
ideal farm conditions, an abundance
of the very best pasture and legume
hays, silage and grain feeds.
Can Be Done in East.
There Is no reason why baby beef
cannot be made in the East, except
that labor is expensive or that farm s
have not been farmed to produce high
est quality legumes and other grasses
for pasture. Besides this, the produc
tion of grain is more expensive as
a rule In the East, thus contributing
to high costs in making beef. You see
the regular average pasture, with the
regular average method of feeding,
will not produce topnotch baby beef.
I do not mean to say that we cannot
reach a point where raising baby beef
may not be profitable in the E a st; tint
that, but we have got to get ready for
that sort of farming first.
WEED IS MOST UNDESIRABLE

A good deal has been said about
weeds and all will agree that they are
most undesirable. No one cares to
grow them In crops and yet they grow,
and that luxuriantly, if unrestrained.
Keeping ahead of the weeds requires
perseverance and a correct knowledge
of the best way to keep them down.
