BIRMINGHAM Copyright by Bobb-Merri- C. ll W. N. D. Serrk Strong colonies of bees produce the bigger crops of better honey, according to V. G. Milum, apiarist at the Wisconsin College of Agriculture. lie suggests that this Is the proper time to prepare for next year's honey crop. The first step In this march to success, according to Mr. Milum, is to see that every colony is supplied with a vigorous Italian queen Immediately. This young queen may be purchased from a reliable queen breeder or may be reared by some method in the apiary. A young queen, Milum points out, will produce a strong colony of young vigorous bees which will winter successfully and still be young nnd Vigorous In th. spring, provided they are given proper winter and spring protection and plenty of stores. Saves Winter Stores. Milum maintains that the successful beekeeper Is the one who saves the first surplus of stores for winter feeding nnd spring development of brood rearing. In addition it saves a lot of work in extraction of this surplus, but especially It Insures the colony against starvation In winter and during unfavorable spring weather. Another suggestion of Milum Is that with the honey flow now coming to a close, all hives should be Inspected to t, see that they are except the entrance, in order to prevent robbing. He warns against leaving honey exposed when examining colonies If any manipulations are necessary. Once robbing Is started in a bee yard, It U practically impossible to do any wori with the bees. Don't Remove Frames. In connection with the extraction of the honey crop Milum advises that frames should not be removed for extraction until they are well capped over, or not until after a week or more following the close of the honey flow, depending upon the locality and the type of weather conditions. Unripe readily and ferhoney will grnn-.Jatmentation will cause all kinds of trouble and inconvenience besides giving nn unmarketable product. With the approach of honey harvesting time, Milum suggests that nn In ventory be taken of labels and containers. Attractive labels and containers aid in the sale of the product. A valuquality product Is always more able; therefore beekeepers are urged to prepare their, honey carefully. d A honey is the first step In the production of a quality product nnd the second step Is clean, honey. If it is then packed and displayed in a neat attractive container the chances for profit are greater. it as fast as possible.

As hay fever sufferers know, this fertilizing dust from the grain plants is carried for great distances by the wind, making the pure 6eed grower's task a difficult one. Pure bred seed naturally Is higher In price than lower grades of seed but the product is correspondingly heavier and higher In grade. The seed grower of fine strains smaller to fields his usually plants acreage than the grower of grain for the general market and must exercise much greater care to keep It from contact with other fields. He must surround these fields with some other crops that cannot In any way interfere in the pollination of the seed which he is growing to sell to the farmer who demands the best quality for his acres. in Plan for More Poultry and Production of Eggs with which the animal has been de veloped, the middle pair of Incisors are renlaced by the permanent leetn.

All of the permnnent teeth have a broad cutting edge when they first appear, compared with the milk teeth. As the sheep grow older the teeth are worn back and hence become narrower. This rate of wearing depends upon the character of grazing upon which the sheep must depend. Western sheep sometimes wear the teeth nlmost to the gums by six years of nge. Again, there Is a difference In breeds. The Merinos are longer lived than the Eng lish breeds; nnd a Merino at eight or cine vears under like cure will show no older mouth than a Down or Ixing- wool at six. x o incrense Should farmers plan their poultry and egg production In the future? The success of such a procedure Is very doubtful, according to F. A. Goiigler, director of the poultry and egg mnrkotlng department of the Illi nois Agricultural association. Competition Is becoming keen in this line," states Director tiongier, "and only efficient producers from now on will be able to make this business pay. I do not think that those exproducers of poultry who plap to pand their business or Individuals who now expect to enter tne poultry business should move cautiously. So far this year approximately 2,000,000 pounds more of dressed poul try have been shipped to the largeconsuming centers than the total receiDts to August 1 of last year, to be added to this Is the Information that we now have 37,000.000 pounds t dressed poultry In cold storage as compared with 23.000,000 nt this time last year, or nn Increase or h,iiw,iiw pounds. Thus we find a large carryover facing us In the future. "On considering the press egg mar keting situation, we find that there is an increase of 110.000 more cases of eggs In cold storage than reported at this dnte last year and our export In eggs has decreased as much as 4."0,000 cases. The reduction In our egg export )s partially due to the fact that European countries, who lurnisnea nn outlet for our surplus poultry prod ucts In the past,' are now getting to the point in production where they can supply their own needs. "Reports from Midwestern states Indicate nn Increase In production this year resulting from the favorable spring season nnd It is doubtful If tne consumption of poultry nnd egprs will show any great Increase In the fu ture." TO PRODUCE CLEAN MILK IN SUMMER Durlng summer months, many dairymen lose considerable money because of milk souring so that It cannot be sold as sweet milk but must be made Into butter or used In other ways. "Milk Is nature's most perfect food," ays John A. Arey, dairy extension specialist for the North Carolina State College of Agriculture, "and every person connected with Its handling should be clean In his methods. There are few living germs or organ-Ism- s In milk when It Is freshly drawn from healthy cows and the secret of producing clean milk Is to keep all dirt and bacteria from getting Into it while handling and then to cool the milk Immediately." Mr. Arey states that expensive equipment la not necessary to produce The stable should be clean milk. clean and well lighted. Since most of the dirt comes from the body of the So cow, she should be kept clean. should the hands of the milkers. All containers ustJ In handling the fluid should be of metal and the corners filled with solder so that no crevice Is left for milk to lodge and sour. These containers should be first rinsed, then scrubbed with a good washing powder, after which another washing In boiling water should be given. The milk should be cooled Immediately after milking, states Mr. Arey. Inexpensive cooling apparatus may be rigged up by using the spring or well water to which Ice has been added. Those dairymen who ship their milk to a wholesale market should use a felt jacket to keep the milk cool while In transit. If the jacket cannot be had, a good burlap bag soaked In water will fill the need. "If such simple precautions as these are observed," says Mr. Arey, "there Is no reason why clean milk, free from bacteria may not be produced and sold." Get Best Returns From Cows in Summer Season ex"Milk cows," says John tension dairy speclulist for the North Carolina State college, "suffer from heat just about as much as people and they need shade during the hot part of the day. If the dairy Is located near the city where there Is not much natural shade, the cows ought to be stabled during the heat of the day." Mr. Arey fclates also that to get the best returns from the cows during this season, files should be kept from them. This means that " the baru should be screened and a fly repellant A;-ey- Chemists' analyses Indicate thnt ! ' ' ! corn- The first step, though, In getting rid of files Is to clean up about the place. All stables and manure pits need to be cleaned at least once each week and. If practical. It is best to haul the manure from the barn directLitter and garbage ly to the field. should also be hauled away. Sometimes when It Is Impossible to get rid of the files, poisons, traps and sprays could well be used to combat them. High prices for hay and feedstuff's reduce the profits from dairying and the wise dairyman, Mr. Arey states, will plant some crops to provide additional feed. Those who have silos are urged to fill them full this summer because by feeding extra amounts of silage the amount of hay needed may be reduced. quick-growin- g Extra Feed for Cows Dry cows or heifers bred to calve In the fall are often left on pasture too late and they calve In poor condition. Many of the best dairymen feel that extra feed given a cow for a month or six weeks before calving will do as much or more good than the same feed given after calving. A cow should have considerable stored up food reserve In her body if she Is going to be able to stand up under heavy milk production. Feed for Dry Cow cow Is dry, the feed should depend largely upon her condition. If she Is poor In flesh the feed should be abundant enough so that she will be In reasonably good flesh at the time If she Is In fairly good of calving. flesh then little more than n maintenance ration Is necessary. If good pasture Is available It will be all that Is necessary for dry cows. However, If the pastures nre poor some additional roughage should be supplied. After the t Of OtO iO; O Ol OS Os O?
