For this reason the best plan is to mix these two manures .

DAMP FLOORS ARE MENACE TO FOWLS wm Owners Who Tolerate Them Are Inviting Big Losses . Damp floors In poultry houses are ¦ inexcusable , in the opinion of E . R . Gross , agricultural engineer at the New Jersey Agricultural Experiment station .

Highly Concentrated Foods Hurt Turkeys [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Weekly Review — 25 September 1929
Highly Concentrated Foods Hurt Turkeys The turkey has a rather large digestive system and long intestines , accompanied by an ever-present appetite , so that if birds are compelled to satisfy this appetite on highly concentrated foods , indigestion is almost certain to result . If this Is not immediately relieved death will follow , and usually salts or , better still , castor oil will effect a cure . Plenty of green food Is essential to , . young turkeys , such as alfalfa ( if quite tender ) , clover , lettuce , chopped onion tops and dandelion leaves . All green food supplied to turkeys should be cut a little way up from the ground to avoid black-head contamination that may chance to lurk in the soil .

Changing Breeds [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Weekly Review — 25 September 1929
Changing Breeds Several years ago it was common advice to avoid changing breeds of poultry .

Sell Pigs Early and Store New Corn Crop [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Weekly Review — 25 September 1929
Sell Pigs Early and Store New Corn Crop Finishing Porkers on Grain Late in Fall Is Mistake . Limiting the amount of corn fed to March farrowed pigs during the summer and finishing them on the new crop In the fall has been a mistake every year since the World . . war , according to records compiled by swine specialists at the University of Illinois . Without exception , the drop in hog prices between September and December has been more than great enough to offset the advantage of feeding cheaper new corn in the fall . Last year when old corn was scarce and high in price , many hog growers were , tempted to carry their pigs along as cheaply as possible , waiting for the new corn crop . By so doing statistics show that the producers saved about $ 1 . 20 a head on the ration but that they took an average of JjiO . iJG less per head in December because of lower prices . The net loss to the producers from holding was 5 S . 8 G per head . One of the rules followed by leading hog growers f...
