No part of dairy tanning Is more es
sential than the proper feeding of
young calves. Likewise nothing la
more Important for the best develop
ment of calves than a good supply of
milk and skim milk in the ration, in
the past few years the surplus of these
products has been utilized as human
food in the form of condensed and
powdered milk and skim milk. Re
ports recently received by the United
States Department of Agriculture, how
ever, point to a temporary surplus of
these products during the Hush season,
due to decreased export outlet. Un
til this situation Is adjusted, it would
seem advisable to utilize the surplus

In raising dairy calves most dairy
men prefer that the calf remain with
the cow for the first 48 hours. If It
Is tnken nway theu the cow will be
less nervous when she begins to bo

than if they are allowed to ruu to

It is desirable that the calf be in a
thrifty, vigorous condition when it Is
taught to drink. It may be left with
out food for 12 hours, at the end of
which time It will be hungry, anil with
n little teaching will usually drink
