In the usual ration of the dairy
cow cloTer and alfalfa hay is worth
more than twice that of timothy hay.
Legumes are not only the beat milk
producer among the hays, but are
very valuable at soil builders.
When fed liberally a rood dairy
eow can use half her feed for milk
production. When fed a three-fourths
ration she can use only one-third of
her feed for producing milk, and
when fed a half ration she needs all
her feed to maintain her body.
The outlook for the sheep industry
especially wool, from an economic
point, appears favorable for a year
or two at least. The number of sheep
on farms, January 1, 1923, was only
87 million as compared to 55 million
for the 10-year average. Wool eon-
sumption is more than twice as great
as production. In 1922 more than 300
illion pounds were imported also
How many potatoes should we plant
this Bpring? The past year of heavy
production and low prices has been
particularly hard on the western
growers who are a long distance from
arkets. Usually a low price is fol
lowed by about two years of de
creased production. Seed is cheap.
There is little evidence of sudden
wealth acquired by farmers who
'plunge." Those who make money
are the ones who play the game stead
ily. The only certain winners this
Bpring, however, will be those who
produce efficiently that is at a low
cost per bushel.
