The soy bcnn Is rapidly taking a
place ns a major crop In the fanning
systems of the corn belt, replacing
onts to n considerable extent and tak
ing part of the corn acreage. Al
though primarily used for forage, pas
ture nnd ensilage, the growing of seed
during the last few years has been a
very profitable Industry. The produc
tion of seed has now Increased t6 the
point where the supply greatly exceeds
the demands for planting.
Seek Commercial Outlet.
County soy-bean associations, grow
ers, county agents and extension offi
cials, notably In Illinois and Indiana,
have concerned themselves in the de
velopment of a commercial outlet of
the seed. As a result, the production
of oil and menl from corn belt grown
soy beans seems to be definitely as
sured for the season of 1022. Several
mills In Indiana nnd Illinois have he
come Interested In the possibilities of
the soy bean as source of oil and meal.
Two mills In Illinois have planned to
use about 750,000 bushels this season,
while other mills are planning on a

BABY BEEF VERY PROFITABLE
Production Can Be Made on Land
Worth Not More Than $150 Per
Acre Always "Toppers."
Baby beef production can be made
most profitable on laiul worth not
more than $150 an acre, of which at
least !30 per- cent Is easily cultivated,
says W. II. Peters, acting chief of tho
animal husbandry division of the Uni
versity of Minnesota. By bnby beef
production, he says, Is mennt the
growing, fattening and marketing of
beef calves nt ages ranging from 12
to 24 months, 10 to 18 months being
the most economical at which to sell.
"With sufficient fat on them when
placed on tho murket. bnby beeves
are always market toppers," Professor
Peters says. "Baby beef production al
lows raising of more cnlves on tho
same amount of land than does pro
duction of stock or feeder cattle. Each
good baby beef steer should sell for
$30 to $50 more when one nnd one-hnlf
years old than the average feeder
steer will bring at two and one-half
years of age.

PUREBREDS AID MILK YIELD
Tribute to Value of Improved Sires Is
Contained in Statement by
J. C. McDowell.
A tribute to the value of purebred
sires Is contained In a recent state
ment made by J. 0. McDowell, of tho
dairy division of the United States
Department of Agriculture, who point
ed out that tho average production of
38,000 grade cows In cow testing as
sociations In 1020 was 5.0S0 pounds of
milk and 300 pounds of butter, while
the averago production of nil cows In
tho United States was -1,000 pounds of
milk and 200 pounds of butter. The
average milk nnd butter yield of grade
cows was 50 per cent higher than the
average for all grades and scrubs tak
en together. The economy of produc
tlon was over 100 per cent greater.
INCREASE FAT ECONOMICALLY
Best Plan Is to Put Cows on an Abun
dant Ration That Is Rich and
In a herd of well-fed cows It 'Is not
practical to try to produce milk con
tnlnlng more fat by giving rich feeds;,
mat is a pretty weii-setticu fact. In
a herd of poorly.fed cows, though, tho
percentage of fut can be Increased by
putting the cows on abundant ration
that Is rich and easily digested. Tests'
In New York showed an Increase of
one-quarter of 1 per cent of fat, when
tho cows were kept on good feeds for
two years. The Increase was econom
ical, too. There was 50 per cent In
crease In amount of milk produced.
WAY TO AVOID LEAKY TEATS
Good Plan to Apply Collodion After
Each Milking This Closes Up
The only way to prevent leaky teats
fs to smear collodion on the end of
the teat after each milking. This
closes up the , opening and before tho
next milking It must bo removed. .This
Is bothersome, but may be used to good
advantage where the cow loses a quon
tlty of milk.

See That Strain Is of Large
