Essary poultry re searcher at Virginia agricultural Experiment station hns been con ducting tests on Tho yield per cent age of certain popular Breeds of turkeys. He explains that poultry processors Are interested in the eviscerated yield of turkeys since it is in important Factor in marketing costs. Food processors who use raw or cooked boned Turkey meat Blacksburg on broilers can Cost Money All the Way Down the line from pro Ducer to processor to consumer. Harold w. Walker poultry marketing specialist it Vii Points out hint bruised Birds must be downgraded before retailing and everyone concerned would profit by preventing bruises is far As possible one study in Maine involving Birds from Lour lots of Broil ers showed that nearly 80 per cent of Tho Birds that were Grade b or below were downgraded to. Cause of Llesh bruises. A Cornell University study reported that 4 per cent of the broilers received by 32 slaughterhouses in new York City were bruised elusive flocks in pens haying Coder placement mixed so that ome Are parallel and other per ind ocular to the length of pens i la probably have less bruises Han where feeders Are All parallel perpendicular to the length of the roads on which he pens. Some of Iro leis Nie hauled Are rough and t was believed possible that broiler flocks hot Ileal Long distances night have More bruises than Hose hauled Short distances. Broiler flocks in the study were hauled a distance ranging from one to 12 Miles with an average of 19.5 Ulles. But in this study distance to processing Plant had no appreciable influence on the per cent of that there is n minimum of Chemi Cal Enz Ync and moisture changes during storage less show. This menus Little or no Contact Ullh outside Nir which quickly destroys nutrient values. Packaging in materials that permit the snap Benns to lose moisture results in severe Freezer Burn of the Beans during prolonged storage. Rookie Willie Kirkland of the san Francisco giants hit Home runs late in three games to decide As in prepared food products Are interested in the Row and cooked yields of turkeys. In his to cols or. Essary used eight males and eight Fern los each of a Ned Brens cd Bronze and Standard Bronze turkeys 26 weeks of age the usual Market nge i and the same number of Bells Volle White turkeys 17 weeks of age not yet fully matured to determine eviscerated and cooked yields of the oven Randy Turkey without giblets. He slaughtered the turkeys in uie usual manner a Delaware study led to some conclusions which should be of interest to Virginia producers and processors Wix kor said in the study neither the Width nor length of pens appeared to affect the per cent of broilers in a flock that Aro bruised. Nor was there much relationship Between floor space and the per cent of bruises. There seemed to be a tendency for the per cent of bruises to decrease As floor space was increased. The different placement of feed cars in pens did not significantly inflect the per cent of bruises be flock. Flocks of broilers grown in houses which have feeders porn Lac to the length of pens tended to have the most broilers hauled in batteries and iced in Tho feeding station from one to three Days had significantly More bruises than those hauled in coops and killed within four to six hours after reaching the processing Plant. Broiler flocks with a High percentage of poorly fleshed Birds tended to have fewer bruises than flocks with a higher proportion of broilers with Good fleshing the. Results of the study indicate some Breeds tend to Bruise More easily than others for instance n Cross which is White with a few red or Reddish Brown feathers had significantly More bruises than the Silver crosses. Tennessee for by the associated press Chi ilk up another one for Sci ence now experts can Corner laughter with actual measurements of the dressed carcasses show a High degree of accuracy.

Fantastic not it an agricultural application of n de vice the Navy has been using for a Long sonar is an electronic sound de vice that a Nobles ships to select underwater objects and measure the distance to the Bottom of the sea by Means of bouncing sound Waves.

Surpluses have Conli Sously been big farm problem but a new project by the government May eventually help Supply an answer. The development of a chemical process to break Down farm sur pluses into materials for Industrial products is in the offing Hep. E. C. Gaining dark said. Gathings recently told the Mem Phis agricultural club a commit tee on Industrial uses Lor Agri cultural products is now doing re search on such a project. He said such crops As wheat Corn and Cotton could be synthesized into Industrial plastics or a comparable material. This would open up vast new markets for farm surpluses. More motor vehicles Are used in Blacksburg a. Concrete paved surfaces can pay dividends when used in feeding to curly where there is trouble with excessive mud g. D. Kite agricultural Engineer at Vii advises. Kite said a report from the Ken Tucky agricultural Experiment station shows hint steers fed on Concrete increased daily gains 35 or cent and feed efficiency by 25 or cent Over those hint stood in the mud. A feed lot for steers should have at least 70 Square feet per head Ullh Holt the orca under roof the Engineer sold. The covered area if Well bedded need not have n Concrete floor but Hie feeding area should be in Concrete. Faster gains and better feed efficiency also Are reported from tests Ullh hog feeding on con Crete. Many hog feeders Are pro Viding a so called pig or Market hog feeding which included the Concrete feed ing floor and shelter to provide 15 to 18 Square feet per hog Holt the area is under Root for Protection in the Winter weather and Shundo in the summer the covered area is usually enclosed on the North and West sides and ends Ullh the South Side open the uncovered Concrete area should be on the South Side. Where permanent outside Hay Grain or silage feeders Are Situ favourable the area next to the feeders Harvest should be of Concrete or some hard durable material the Trench or Bunker silo used for self feeding should cer Lauly have a Concrete floor Kite says because Muddy conditions can become very serious. Horizontal silos Ullh Concrete floors that Are wide enough for about one fifth of the animals to eat at one time Are proving successful for Dairy and beef cattle. For Dairy cows uie self feeding silo should be reasonably close to the barn so it can be connected with a Concrete Lane. In. A Loose housing system for Dahy cows a 10 to 12 feet wide Concrete area adjacent to the Hay rack or silage feeding trough will save bedding and labor. A thick Ness of 4 inches is suitable for most livestock feeding floors. Where heavy equipment is used the floors should be 5 to 6 inches thick. Concrete May be bought ready mixed and delivered to the farm for 20c to 25c per Square foot 4 Inch farm labor can be used for leveling and finishing. Materials for mixing on the Job can be bought for 12c to 15c Pel Square foot of Concrete. Kite advises using Only the Best materials. All surfaces for use by livestock should be finished rough to prevent slipping but not so rough that cleaning is difficult. Publications on making Concrete pouring Concrete floors.
