At least one strong stand of bees
to the acre is recommended for pear
orchards in Oregon, says the experi
ment station, as native insects are
as a rule not abundant in these
orchards during blossoming time,
and best results demand that bees
be present in relatively large num
bers at the time the blossoms open.
In addition to salt, two kinds of
minerals, phosphorous and lime, are
necessary to the well-being of the
dairy cow. These minerals are the
principal parts of bone, and are
found to a great extent in the milk
of cows. Alfalfa hay is very rich
in lime, but is deficient in phosphor
us, which may be supplied by feed
ing sterilized bone flour, says the
Oregon experiment station.
Chicks need the direct rays of the
sun as protection against rickets,
says the experiment station. Cod
liver oil is recommended as a cure
for this disease, given at the rate
of one pint of oil for each 100
pounds of gram and mash con
sumed. The cod liver oil may be
mixed with a small quantity of
ground corn, and this mixture add
ded to the remainder of the mash
Hard Winter Empties Hay Mows
But Cow Need More Than
Grass, Says Brandt
Oregon dairymen running short
of winter feed and now eager to get
the cow8 out on early spring pas
ture are in danger of greatly reduc
ing profits later in the year for the
sake of temporary savings in feed
costs, warns P. M. Brandt chief in
dairying at the experiment station.
Professor Brandt recently discussed
this question at length over the col
lege radio, KOAC.
"We - have just finished a hard
winter and a lot of dairymen are
practically out of feed," said Pro
fessor Brandt. "In some places pas
ture is already adequate but for the
most part continued cold has even
retarded grass growth. The temp
tation is to decide that feed is too
costly and turn the cows out to
make their way on the early grass."
The danger in this, says Professor
Brandt, is that while the cows may
be able to get enough grass to keep
up their milk flow for the present
the early grass Is so watery that
the cow draws on her body for nec
essary food elements. This los3 in
weight is not regained on pasture
and then at the end of the spring
pasture period the cow enters the
dry summer season reduced in flesh,
She is then sure to fall off serious
ly in milk flow.
"It is my belief that the wise
dairyman will decide that after all
the best thing is to feed his cows
grain if he does not have any hay
available, until such time as the
pasture is sufficiently strong to
carry his cattle, even if in so doing
he barely gets his money back for
the present." Professor Brandt
"As a matter of fact, even with
good pasture, it is necessary to feed
some grain or other supplements
because it is impossible for the ani
mals to eat enough grass, if they
are heavy producers, to keep pro
duction, up. Some authorities fig
ure for the channel breeds from 3
pounds of grain for cows giving 20
pounds of milk, to 8 pounds for 40
pound producers. Other breeds
need from 3 to 9 pounds for 25 to 50
pound production. This gives an
idea of about what supplementary
feed is needed, especially early in
plans will be worked out which will
bring a great increase in the" num
ber of "deer killers" that are bagged
annually by hunters. When it is
realized that 'a cougar kills approx
imately 60 deer each year the Im
portance of making a strong cam
paign of extermination is acknow
ledged. More cougar have been kill
ed in Oregon this season than In
any other for a long period of time
but at that the animals are on the
increase and are annually killing
more deer than are bagged by hunt
ers during the open season. It Is
believed that if substantial prizes
in addition to the regular $25 boun
ties were offered hunters an in
creasingly large number of cougar
would be killed.

When You Thresh Your Grain
lHE 1929 MODELS OF THE CASE COMBINE
eliminate all uncertainty as to whether you are wast
ing or saving your grain. You can depend that the
CASE will thresh each head of grain and save it with
out adjustments of the machine. With a self-balancing shoe
and recleaner, ball bearings running in oil, and separation from
the cylinder, there are no waste motions in the efficient man
ner in which the CASE handles the grain. Every part of the
machine is easily accessible and so designed to eliminate the
need of a separator tender. A complete stock of repairs is
kept on hand through the harvest season to protect you against
costly delays. Belt driven by a powerful CASE tractor mo
tor, the machine operates smoothly and quietly.
