Mcnaughton manager los Angeles Union stockyards i of Angeles july 18. A the l most talked of feature of the cattle markets during the past few weeks has been the wide Price differential Between Market values of Grain fed cattle and grass fat Stock. This season has witnessed the done to Bruise stems. Use sharpest scissors otherwise a Sharp knife. Air bubbles in the Stem which might prevent absorption of water Are avoided when Flower stems Are Cut under water keeping the House ablaze with a color and fragrance in july is no problem with All the Flowers which Bloom it this time of year. Keeping them fresh looking and attractive however is another problem and one that should be carefully studied by every woman. The first need of Cut Flowers is plenty of water. When making up an arrangement an excellent Way to lie Sura that your Flowers Start off with sufficient moisture is to Cut them under water. As soon As Flowers Are Cut. A sucking reaction in the Stem occurs. If thera is no we Ater it sucks up air and air hubbies May interfere with absorption of water. By cutting the Stem under water the pores Are filled with water tit the Start and by a continuous changing of water Dally Flowers will last longer and be More Beautiful the while. It is also u Good idea to Cut Flowers which have just started to Wilt under water. This will not bring them Back to their Normal Healthfulness hut it will sometimes give them another spark of life for a Day or so. Another Good method of keeping them is to place them in the refrigerator at night it seems to freshen them for a Short time. Able material.

The front opening should j years As a missionary in the South be covered with wire netting and should be arranged to admit ample 1 sunlight and ventilation. Feeding watering devices fwd troughs or hoppers should be such that they May be easily cleaned and built so As to prevent fowls from roosting Over them. Removable hoppers Are preferable to stationary ones. Devices for drinking should he designed to Supply fresh clean water which cannot Tai contaminated by droppings and at the same time be arranged so that they do not overflow or permit the Birds to scatter water Over the floor and create Damp spots. Tho elimination of moist areas around watering devices in either the House or the Yard is an important Factor in general american country doctor Daffin pointed out however that although such production was possible North american growers need have Little fear of such an eventuality for at least 40 years. At present he said Lack of agricultural tools and machinery and a general ignorance of efficient farming methods was holding Down production. Sees no danger a there has been traditional Friendship Between Brazil and the United states a he declared. A i done to think we need to begrudge them the Cotton they Are growing. It will be a Long time Lief re they have enough gins and the Pacific coast and particularly has this been True on Tho Loa Angeles Market. At this writing the general run of so called grass steers Are Selling at to $6.60 a cwt., where As Choice to prime fed steers Are Selling As High As $9.00 to $9.25. In other words there is a possible Quot spread of three cents a Pound Between the value of Ordinary grass fat Stock and High Quality thickly fleshed steers that have had a Long period on full Grain rations. Differential at Peak there Are few in the Trade who believe that this is a temporary situation. Although it is extremely doubtful if we will see a greater Price differential than now exists on the Market. It must be considered that the general run of grass fat Cattie Are hardly of the High Quality that California produced in 1935, for cd the brazilian government is in ample. Then too.

Tial in the prevention of intestinal parasitism. Dirt Yards Are especially susceptible to contamination with intestinal parasites and other diseases and for this reason Are especially difficult to keep clean. Sweeping up and hauling away the surface dirt and accumulations of droppings particularly from that portion of the Yard adjacent to the houses will remove enough of the contamination to make it Worth the Effort. No practicable and effective method of cleansing soil by chemical treatment has been found. Concrete kilns desirable the use of a double Yard system helps in preventing soil contamination but even in this Case where cropping is practice it is desirable to allow the ground to dry thoroughly since dryness is destructive to parasite eggs. Because of soil contamination Many poultry men have found it desirable to reduce the size of Yards and provide a Small Concrete run w hich can be easily cleaned and disinfected. This system with proper attention to management and cleanliness will materially assist in the reduction of soil born diseases and parasites. A proper degree of cleanliness on a poultry farm can be Best maintained by having a regular schedule that is adhered to just As carefully As to fat for feeding or collecting eggs. J the tingly removal of droppings from the droppings boards and placing them either in Fly proof bins or haul Long considerable distance from tile houses will assist in the control of tape Worms. Litter recommended Tho use of litter in the houses is desirable from the standpoint of diluting tile droppings but in All cases it should be of a material which Fin said. Cotton offers South american growers a second a Money crop to augment Coffee and rubber production. Brazils Coffee production already is far higher than world consumption requires. The former missionary estimated 4,000,000 sacks of Coffee would be burned this year to eliminate top heavy surplus supplies. Growers wealthy a with Cotton Worth 6 or 6 cents a Pound to them in american Money the peons tenant Farmers and Large Plantation owners Are rolling in Money Quot doctor Daffin said. A due to the drop in Exchange rate their Cotton actually is bringing them More Money than Ever before. A he told How a group of Confederate soldiers went to Brazil and started growing Cotton soon after the civil War. They formed a settlement and named it Villa americana. They believed there was no future for Cotton growing Iii the states with slaves freed.

Under the plan the Young people will hold meetings of their own to plan farm Ami Home improvement tiered that the proportion of highly finished dry lot steers is comparatively Small. Should a great Many people enter the business of finishing steers on Grain rations and actually marketing such Stock in Choice to prime condition there May be some lessening in the Price differential. But it does appear that we Are not going to return to Tho Days when there was Little or no Price differential Between grass cattle and welled cattle. My opinion based upon Many talks Yilth meat packers and meat retailers is that we shall continue to witness a Price differential that will make it Worth while for Many of our Western people to give a serious thought to mastering the Art of finishing cattle in dry lots. Finishing entirely possible that prime cattle May la finished on available feds in the a St tii country has been proven.
