That milk cows need more min

feed, la the finding of recent feeding
tests at the Ohio exiwriuient station.
The boat feeds to supply these ele
ments are clover hay, alfalfa hay, noy
bean hay and wheat bran. If plenty
ef one or more of these la not given
in the dally feed, It will be wise to
add about one pound of line ground

pounds of grain mixture.

FRED JORG, Prop.
Home-grown feeds for dairy cows,
unless there Is an abundance of clo
ver, alfalfa or soy-bean hay. do not
carry enough protein to produce milk
most economically, according to dairy
authorities at Ohio experiment station.
The addition of such feeds as bran,
linseed oilmeal and cottonseed meal
to the ration win supply the necessary
protein and assist In the digestion ef
the home-grown feeds.
When no legume hay Is available
and such feeds as silage, mixed bay,
clover, ground corn and ground oats
are fed, no cow should have less, and
heavy-producing cows should have
more, than 3% pounds of linseed oil
Instead of linseed meal one of the
following equivalents may be fed:
Cottonseed meal 2 pounds and bran 2
pounds, wheat bran 4 pounds and
gluten feed 2 pounds, wheat bran 8
pounds snd oilmeal 2 pounds, oilmeal
1 pound, cottonseed meal 1 pound and
bran 3 pounds, or distillers' grain 3
pounds and ullmeal 1 pound. Where
a good legume hay la fed at least
half the above amount of protein
concentrate should be fed.
