A BULLETIN FROM THE STATE
AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE ,
KEEP UP THE MILK FLOW
The Present Dry Season Proving Most
Disastrous to nn Important
The following bulletin to Nebraska
dairymen has been issued by the de
partment of 'dairy husbandry of the
atato university :
The piesptit hot , dry season Is prov
ing to be a most disastrous one for
keeping up the milk Mow and It will
be necessary to use cxtromo measures
to prevent a severe loss. Reports
have been locolved Irom various
parts of the state telling of dry
pastures and a , severe decrease in
milk production. This Is a most seri
ous condition when wo consider the
month of June as the best In the year
for pastures and volume of milk pro
As most of the cows freshen In the
spring , they should be at this season
of the year at the height of their pro
duction. If they are allowed to
shrink now they ure not apt to be
profitable fall and winter producers.
It must bo understood that a cow
must produce a certain amount of
milk and fat during the year In older
to prove a pioflt to her keeper.
Thousands of cows arc made unprof
itable through lack of food at critical
seasons of the year , and this is cer
tainly a most critical season.
The ilrst 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 Hies
are getting very bad , It Is well to use
once or twice : i day some lly mixture
which can be put on with a hand
sprayer. The milker will Ilnd his
work more agreeable If he would put
his cows In a dark stable while they
are being milked. If this is impos
sible he can use a gunnysack blan
ket , which , thrown o\er 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 Is comfortable she can then do
her best. Should she be tormented
with Hies , forced to eat short , unpnl.it-
nblo grass or suffer hunger , it Is Im
possible for her to make her most
Wo are ciulto likely to get 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 those reduced to a
scant flow. Ilrlelly , 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 fl 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 moan she must receive
fifty-two pounds of hay The same
figures In terms of grass would mean
she must cat thirty-seven 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 K C. Hlmmons , as
Bee-rotary of the state board of Irri
gat Ion , baa received many complaints
from western Nebraska from irrlga-
tors ComplalntH nro mndo that claim

have pi lor rights. Information ie
colvcd Indicates that the North Platte

almost dry. Lack of snow In the
mountains In Colorado and Wyoming
is given mi the reason for lack of
water In tlin Plat to river. Usually
these rivers rlso the latter part of
June from the melting of snow. If
the rise does not take place , and this
is now doubtful , those who depend
upon Irrigation In western Nebraska
may have great difficulty In getting
water. Slate Engineer .Simmons has
no funds with which to police canals
and theie is no way to prevent pur-
sons from taking water icgardless of
whether or not persons entitled to
prior claims on streams have been
supplied. The hrlgutor who has a crop
that Is being ruined for lack of water
is not likely to stand Idly by and see
water Hawing down stream to some
other claimant who may live many
miles away. The state engineer Is
unable to cause an eats and go Into
court to prosecute persons who take
water out of their turn because he
has no loiinds to expend for such pur
poses. His two under secretaries ,
Robert II. Willis of Bridgeport , and
Page T. Francis of Crawford are In
the Held constantly trying to pacify
claimants and restore some semb
lance of order , but it is said the Irrl
gators have about decided to take
water whenever they need it legard-
less of the lights of others. It la 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 those
having prior rights are supplied with
water. If this does no good the com
plainants will have to go Into the
courts to seek injunctions to enforce
