In n very Little while now there will to a million american boys on the firing line in France and Al nudes. Already there Are some millions of British and French boys on that Lino boys who have been there some of them for four years onto ring their lives in defense of your Home quite As much As of their own winding off the atrocities of the Boche brutes from your loved ones though they have not been quite Able to Ward them off from their own mothers and Sisters. All of those boys ours and others will remain there and the by they shall not pass i will be made Good so Long As the flow of american meats across the Ocean is ample and uninterrupted. The requirement of us at Home is a very simple requirement. It does not limit us in any Way to a meatless diet. It leaves us Large Choice of very excellent meats. But it does demand that we cat less of beef no canned beef and not too much of any meat that is at All suitable for overseas. Of course none of us would deliberately fall to do that Little bit for the men who Are sacrificing for us their treasure of youth and Hope and love. No american worthy Tho name exalts his belly above the sacred things of Homo and country. Only some of us might to thoughtless. Therefore take thought. Slaughter of Dairy cattle because of Lack of feed in Europe. Many animals have been killed milk 8upply decreased. Prepared by the United states department of agriculture although Dalry cattle Are economical users of feedstuffs and although they will convert coarse inedible material into a human food still they must Havo some Grain for maximum production. When in smals convert feeds Buch As gun in that can to used direct by human beings they usually do so at n loss of human food. In times of extreme food shortage therefore animals Are killed for human food and Tho gun in used directly. In some of Tho Continental countries this policy has been followed because of the Lack of feeds and Tho need of meat. Most of the Dalry countries of Europe have depended upon imports for a Large part of Tho grains or concentrates for Dairy cattle. This Supply has been largely Cut off with the result that in some countries there has been a tendency to decrease the number of animals. Because of these facts millions of Dalry cattle Havo been slaughtered in Europe Slanco the War began. The Lack of milk that hns resulted has entailed great suffering in some sections especially among children. It is important therefore that such a situation be prevented in this country so for is possible. If by economical feeding and the utilization of feeds that arc not necessary for humans the dairymen of the country could conserve their herds until after the War they would Render great service to humanity. With the Grent number of animals killed in Europe and the increase in the rate of Slaughter As the War continues the food shortage becomes More serious. When the struggle is Over it will be impossible to meet at once Tho demand for milk in the countries whore the greatest number of cattle have been killed. Efforts will to made of course to increase the number of Dairy cattle but this requires time several years in fact. The Supply of gun in on the other hand can to increased More rap idly but there will probably be demand upon us for products from Tho Dairy is Well is for foundations for herds provided we keep our Supply of Good animals. This should to considered another reason for increasing or it least maintaining Tho herds of Dairy cattle in this country. Annual pruning of Trees purebred Holstein kor Dyke Winona.
