prevent freezer ourn In addition in presenting meatcutting tables in the book let she indicates how much meat can usually be figured on in trimmed cuts according to the poundage of the live animal Wellillustrated the booklet tells exactly how to wrap food either by the drugstore or butcherstyle method Airtight vaporproof wrappings are ab solutely necessary Mrs Smith has pointed out because they help meat and other foods re tain the high quality flavor and appearance of the fresh product Freezerburn is a common problem in freezer storage of meats which are not properly wrapped It is due to drying out of the food along with some changes caused by the presence of air The food Mrs Smith as sures us is not spoiled but it is not the highquality food it should be Along with indicating how to

Analyze Water to Choose Softener Have the farm water supply analyzed to determine its hard ness before buying a water soft ener County Extension Director Marion E Olson cautions Cerro Gordo county farm folks He explained that if this meas ure isnt taken the softener may not work Iowa well water is usually quite hard and often con tains considerable iron Some well water contains minerals that cant be removed by softeners Water softener dealers usually take a sample of well water and send it to the manufacturer for analysis before selling a softener But Mr Olson pointed out that it is the farmers responsibility to demand this service if it isnt offered The softener should have suf ficient capacity so that it will not need to be regenerated more than twice a month according to Iowa State college agricultural engineers A brine solution is used to regenerate the Zeolite type of domestic water softener They also say it is wise to buy a softener complete with a sepa rate brine tank Its a good idea to secure a water softener on a rental basis if possible Mr Olson says A local dealer will install the softener and service it The cost of this type of service is nom inal and relieves the farm fam ily of the job of regenerating the softener PLANS ARE OFFERED The Midwest Plan service has drawn up plans for a movable selffeeder for hogs which can be used for storing grain Your county extension director has plans for this building and you an obtain a copy for 15 cents Roughage is the basis of dairy feeding Iowa State college dairy men say B onne GUERNSEYS 23 years of breeding for
