A BULLETIN FROM THE STATE
KEEP UP THE MILK FLOW
The Present Dry Senoon Proving Most
Disastrous to nn Important
The following bulletin to Nebraska
dairymen has been Issued by tlic de
partment of 'dairy husbandry of the
state university :
The present hot , dry season Is prov
ing to bo a most disastrous ono foi
keeping up the milk How and It will
be necessary to use extreme measures
to prevent n severe loss. Reports
have been received from various
parts of the state tolling of dry
pastures and a severe decrease In
milk production. This Is a most sorl-
ous condition when we consider the
month of Juno as the best In the year
for pastures and volume of milk pro
As most of the cows freshen In the
spring , they should he at this season
of the year at the height of their pro
duction. If they are allow.cd to
shrink now they are not apt to be
profitable fall and winter producers.
It must be understood that a cow
must produce a certain amount of
milk and fat during the year In order
to provo a pioflt to her keeper.
Thousands of cows are made unprof
itable through lack of food at critical
seasons of the year , and this Is cer
tainly a most critical season.
The first cutting of alfalfa has now
been harvested and milch cows
should have access to some of this
now hay. They should also be given
a small grain ration , which could be
given In amounts according to the
production of the cow. As the ( lies
nro getting very bad , It Is well to use
once or twlco a day some lly mixture
which can bo put on with a hand
sprayer. The milker will find his
work more agreeable If he would put
his cows In a dark stable while they
arc lining milked. If this Is impos
sible he can use a gunnysack blan
ket , which , thrown over the animal
during milking time , will prevent
switching and discomfort to the cow
and milker. The main quality for
profitable production may be ex
pressed by the simple term , "cow
comfort ; " in other words , when a
cow IB comfortable nho can then do
hur best. SJiould slio be tormented
with files , forced to cut short , unpalat
able grass or suffer hunger , It Is Im
possible for her to make her most
Wo are quite likely to got some
good rains later on in the season ,
which will revive the pastures and
give the animals more succulent feed ,
but until such a condition is had the
feeding process must go on. Few
cow keepers realize the great differ
ence ! In profit between cows giving a
normal How and these reduced to a
scant flow. Briefly , this may be ex
plained In the following way :
A 1,000-pound cow requires each
day about twelve pounds of alfalfa
hay to sustain her. This is termed
the "maintenance" part of the ration.
If this cow Is producing thirty
pounds of 3 per cent , milk , she will
need about forty pounds of alfalfa
hay per day to make the milk. 'This
added to the twelve pounds for main
tenance would mean she must receive
fifty-two pounds of hay. The same
figures In terms of grass would mean
she must cat tlilrty-soven pounds of
grass for maintenance and sixty-six
pounds of grass for production , or a
total requirement to keep up body
and milk flow of 101 ! pounds of grass ,
which under the present conditions , Is
a physical Impossibility.

SHORTAGE OF WATER.
Mnny Complaints From Western Ne
State Engineer E. 0. Simmons , as
Bccri'tary of the state board of Irri
gation , has received many complaints
from western Nebraska from Irrlga-
tors. Complaints nro nmdo that claim
ants are ur.lng water to which others
have pi lor lights. Information ie-
reived Indicates that the North Platte
river .ind all of the smaller struamn
In the western pait of the state arc
almost dry. Luck of snow In the
mountains In Colorado and Wyoming
Is given mi the reason for lack of
water in the Plntto rlvor. Usually
these rivers rlso the latter part of
Ttino from the melting of snow. If
Lho rlso does not take place , and this
Is now doubtful , those who depend
upon Irrigation in western Nebraska
may have great dlfllculty In getting
water. State Engineer .Simmons 1ms
no funds with which to police canals
and tliero Is no way to prevent per
sons from Inking water regardless of
whether or not persons entitled to
prior claims on streams have been
nupplled. The Irrigator who has a crop
that Is being ruined for lack of water
Is not likely-to stand Idly by and see
water flowing down stream to some
other claimant who may live many
miles away. The state engineer Is
tumble to cause ariests and go Into
court to prosecute persons who take
water out of their turn because he
has no founds to expend for such pur
poses. Flis fwo under secretaries ,
llobort H. Willis of Bridgeport , and
Page T. Francis of Crawford are In
the field constantly trying to pacify
claimants and restore some semb
lance of order , but It Is said the Ivrl-
gators have about decided to take
water whenever they need It regard
less of the rights of others. It Is be
lieved it will be hard to get Juries to
convict such persons in their own
communities for so doing. All that
the state engineer can do Is to notify
persons complained of that they must
not open their headgates till these
having prior rights are supplied with
water. If this docs no good the com
plainants will have to go Into the
courts to seek injunctions to enforca
Attorney General May Leave.

according to a rumor current ) in Lin
coln , has been appointed to a posi

several thousand dollars a year , has
accepted the position and will go to

of office in Nebraska. Mr. Thompson
Is now on his way home from Wash
ington and confirmation of the rumor
