He brought out one or two poinls of very great interest. First as to siios. He was convinced that a good silo would pay for itself in one season. He pointed out that Domin- ion legislation is in force whereby any municipality may insist that all cows supplying milk to thai municipality Mitist be tasted for tuberculosis. Cal- Kary is now putting this legislation effect with a good deal of clis- turbanco in the dairy business result- ing As to the income frpm dairy pro- duce ho considered the market un- limited. He believed butter was just each man separately or through a live- stock association, to make arrange- ments with the bankers for financial assistance. Then someone should be selected to go as far east as Ontario, where he was satisfied that first class cows could Jie bought and laid down at Coaldale for per head. These i cows should be purchased subject to tuberculosis test and with guarantee of a retest inside 60 days. The gov- ernment tests cows free-and there are methods that may be used, the inter-dermal, the sub-cutaneous, and the ophthalmic. President Marnock Mr. Mai-nock of "the Lethhridse Board of Trade then gave a brief ad- dress and adrised- jofnt action with neighboring districts in buying In the east. Mr. Hutton at point assur- ed the audience that Uie C. P. R. would The creamery business he pointed out is now being revived and several defunct creameries are feeing put into operation again. Jlr. Mclntosb. of ths Chief Mountain Creamery, confirmed Mr. Carlyle's position on the cheese question and .said that the cool nights m the West favored the cheese industry. Mr. Mutton's Address Mr. Hutton of the C. P. R. depart-' mcnt of Natural Resources, was the ne.xt speaker. He dealt with thrte matters fundamental in farming. Without these farms would operated at a loss forced out of business. .and farmers Upon a question being- put to the meeting about 15 fanners intimated that they would like to seoure good cows. The total number of cows re- quired, according to a hasty estimate was 60. These men then got together and arranged to first find out what' financial arrangements they could! make, at a later date they will meet anil select someone to act as buyer for them in tho east. The U. P. A. is to be congratulated upon'promoting meetings such as these, for apart from a surplus of tobacco smoke, there -was an abund- ance of information and if all practice the principles laid down by Air. Hut- ton, there will be fewer disappointed dairymen a year hence. First was better breeding of farm animals. His advice was- for farmers to start with what they have in live- stock and breed up through the use of pure bred sires. With good grade cows and a good sire a 50 per cent. improvement could bo made in the first .generation. The basis upon which to estimate production per cow. The average pound of butter is produced at a loss if ail the factors in its production arc jiroperly charged. The last 12 years in Albej-ta the average increase in per cow is only 300 Ibs. The average production per cow now stands at Ibs. Tlus could easily be doubled. The Dominion govern- Jiient is prepared to supply good, pure Tired sires. Tf a man wants to buy- one, they run from to each. These are bulls whose dams have a very high milk record. On the matter of feeding, which was the second essential for success, Mr. Hutton is a silo enthusiast. For en- silage corn, peas and oatsu, and sun- flowers are all good. Sunflowers are tho best however. The yield is two and one-haif times as heavy as corn, thirty tons to tho acre is common. With this feed, one aero of land will support eight cows for 200 days. Sunflowers are well adapted for dry land conditions. A farmer near Medi- cine Hat grew 10 acres last year. They yielded 14 tons- per acre. He keeps 20 cows on 160 acres and sells milk in Medicine Hat. f'attle gain more weight per clay! on sunflowers than on other Two weeks ago the Calgary market i topped by a. carload of sunflower fnrt steers. Mr. Hutton discussed the various i kinds of silos, concrete. Wone. cement block, and pit. >The silo filling macli- 1 Inery, he said, should be secured on a community-basis. j Some discussion took place us to to construct a pit silo, nnil Mr. RAYMOND DAIRY Hutton pointed out that this type sim- ply consists of a pit. dug as deeply as H man's strength and enthusiasm will allow, ft costs nothing but labor. The basis upon which to estimate the nec- essary size Is one cubic foot of per day per cow.
