great amount of oxperimcntinK
going on in fattening cattle. In

steer never had a kernel of corn,
but was fattened on alfalfa, oats
This is what Mr. McGregor
says concerning him:
"Glenbarnock Victor II., has
never eaten a kernel of corn.
He is a triumph of economical
feeding. Barley and oats, ground
and boiled, have comprised his
