M. at the Christian church in Stilwell, for a special progranj hi honor of the 1938, Graduating class. A special speaker will be pres- "Month-old caleves can be raised on skini just as successfully as on whole milk-but they generally aren't." In that fashion, P. C. McGil-liard, dairy specialist at the Oklahoma A. and M. College, sums up the calf feeding situation, listing three reasons why calves fail to have the best of health. "Paradoxical as it seems, the calves should seldom be fed more than a pound of any kind of milk a day for each 10 pounds of live weight," McGil-liard adds. "This means that a young calf would get about three quarts daily." Too much milk, faxing the digestive system of the young animal, makes him work too hard for his energy, in addition to ncreasing disease susceptibility. The second fault that makes a c ommorr handicap to successful calf raising is the use of dirty pails to feed the stock. If a pail is used as many as two times in succession without without thorough cleaning; putrefactive and ptomaine bacteria are apt to be present in the accumulated filth and spoiled milk, greatly hindering the calf's chances of growth and health. Feeding pf milk at irregular temperature is the third common flaw in calf raising. Much trouble is eliminated by always having the milk the same temperature. The desirable temperature is 100 degrees F. for calves. The addition of oat's, corn, much trouble.
