Value of Wheat
In Lamb Feeding
Shown by 4-H'ers
The value of wheat in fattening
lambs was well demonstrated again
in the 4-H club lamb-fattening con
test sponsored by the Eastern Ore
gon Wheat league, in the opinion of
H. A. Lindgren, extension livestock
field man. and L. J. Allen, assistant
state club leader, who were in ac
tive charge of the contest. At the
same time the feeding of 324 lambs
by' 28 different boys and one girl
served to show the importance of
correct feeding methods as well as
the use of proper feeding materials,
they pointed out.
Of the total number of lambs fed,
in pens of 12 each, 114 graded good
to choice, after 110 days of feeding,
147 graded medium, and 71 graded
' common. The lambs were all ship
ped from Heppner. where they were
Heppner Gazette Times, Heppner, Oregon
shown at the wheat leaeue conven
tion, to Portland and sold there to a
San Francisco buyer. Top grade
brought $10.75 per hundred pounds,
the mediums $9.85. and the common
Highest average gain of 36 pounds
per head during the feeding period
was made by a pen fed by Bobby
Van Schoiack of Heppner, although
the pen fed by Phillip Hoon of Um
apine, in which all 12 lambs made
the top grade, .won the largest pre
mium based on condition of the
lambs. Elton Medlar of Rufus had
11 of his 12 lambs in the top grade,
and Harold Smith of Pilot Rock had
10 out of 12. -
Wheat fed whole plus chopped al
falfa hay proved to be the most suc
cessful fattening ration. Pens in
which the lambs were fed plenty of
hay and wheat but not with the
regularity required, made poor gains
compared with those fed properly.
To everybody a
Happy New Year

tion, pointed out that in round fig
ures 100 pounds of wheat and 200
pounds of chopped hay will put a
lamb in top condition. He added
that more fattening of lambs would
furnish a profitable market for
northwest surplus wheat.
