THE RICH COUNTY NEWS, RANDOLPH, UTAH Photos of the Farmington Flood Disaster Pays to Market Spring Cockerels at Two Pounds i"' x , With the present price of feeds, says the Ohio Agricultural college, farmers cannot afford to keep their cockerels until the holiday season to sell them. After a to 2 growing cockerel reaches pounds it is an inefficient consumer of feed for meat production. The price of cockerels Is always higher during the spring and summer months than in the fall when many farmers dispose of their surplus cockerels. The slump In price is due to two causes: (1) The large size cockerel Is less desirable on the table, (2) The cockerel must compete on the market with the surplus hens, with a resulting stump In price. In case the cockerels are kept until fall they should be crate fattened, as they will then bring a premium on the market. The birds should be confined in a small coop or fattening battery and fed twice a day on the following ration : 70 pounds of corn meal, 30 "pounds high grade shorts or middlings, and 10 pounds of wheat bran. This should be mixed with sufficient sour skim milk or butter milk to make a mixture of the consistency of a thick cream. The birds should be starved 12 hours -- spring-hatche- d ' l4 Motor to Church in Comfort zO SUPERIOR Sedan ss. 860 f. o, b. Flint, Mich.

GHILDRENCRY FOR CASTORIA Green Feed Is Valuable Especially Prepared for Infants for Its Mineral Matter and Children of All Green feed Is valuable, not only for Its succulence, which makes It palatable to poultry, but also because it contains mineral matter, including nutritive constituents, necessary to sustain life, promote growth, and assure reproduction. Foremost among these constituents are the vitamines, the absence of which from any ration, whether for humans, animals or birds, will ultimately prove fatal. . Therefore it behooves every poultry keeper, whether backyarder, specialist, or farmer, to make provision for an ample supply of green feed In some form, and In view of the shortness of our growing season, and the late spring experienced this year, no time should be lost.
