General Catlin Explains Why
World Is Afraid of
Feeding Calves For Best Growth
By good care and proper feeding
several dollars may be added to the
value of any calf during the first year.
The total Increase by this means
would amount to millions of dollars
to the dairy fanners of the state.
Young calves need whole milk for
the first few days. Skim milk Is a
cheap feed for calves, but should be
fed carefully in limited quantities and
only while it Is warm and sweet Skini
milk may form the principal diet of
the calf for six months to a year. Fac

Thoro aro sound financial and eco

should be brought again to tho peo

Now If the people tako tho loan,

free to lend to tho farmer, the manu

the baker so they can get busy ngaln.
Then production nnd business will
grow and, by the formula, prices will
ccme to normal. Then we shall all
know "where wo aro at" and get
straightened out again.
