Less Feeding Stuffs for Farm Stock
Less Feeding Stuffs for Farm Stock TOO MUCH MEAT—TOO LITTLE BREAD. The President of the Board of Agriculture and Fisheries urges every farmer and stock- keeper to take immediate stops to meet the coming shortage of feeding stuffs. Owing to the lack of tonnage and the necessity of restricting imports, the farmer must be prepared for a reduced importation ot feeding stuffs during the coming year of at least a million tons. In addition to this loss the milling regulations will deprve the indus- try of about half a million tons of offals, bar- ley maize, etc., formerly available for live stock feeding. This reduction of a million and a half tons represents about one-sixth of the total amount of concentrated feeding .stuffs that were at the farmers' disposal be- fore the war. At the same time, the Board of Agriculture census shows that in last June the number of live stock in the country was rather larger than ever before. LIVE STOCK MUST BE KEDUC ED. In view of the scarcity of feeding stuffs, it may become necessary to resort to some method of rationing the supply. Rationing con only he avoided if farmers generally will deteermine to reduce their individual demands upon the limited stock. The shortage of feeding stuffs, which will become more pronounced as the season ad- vances. renders it essential that farmers gener- ally should adopt the policy of getting their live stock as far forward as possible upon the grass, green crops, and roots of this summer and autumn. There will be a large call for home produced meat, both for civil and Army needs, as soon as it can be got ready, and stock raisea's are expected to take every step to prepare to meet this demand. It will lie necessary to effect a substantial reduction in the head of live stock in the country before next Christmas. This reduc- tion should in the fust place fall on the animals that arc not wanted for breeding purposes. AH such cattlc (other than milch cows), sheep and pigs that can be got into reasonable con- dition for slaughter on the crops grown this season should be seiit to market. To assist this nccosary reduction in the number of cnttie the Order restricting the sale of calves has been withdrawn, and on!y such calves as are of good quality for future milk or beef production or for breeding should be carried beyond the stage of veal. The President is const-ions that the advice to the farming community to reduce their live ,to--k cannot be welcome, but it is dicta- fed by a full consideration of the national lie :'s at the present time. The long con- tinuance of the wintry weather makes it doubly difficult for farmers to pursue the policy idicated, hut he trusts they will realise the gravity of the situation, and pittasy, own ine-linatoijiis aside, will co-operate in thus scuring the needed supply of meat during the late summer and autumn and in reducing the head of stock that has to be carried through the winter. In view of the necessity for economising food. the President is of opinion that all futuro fat stock shows should be at once can- celled, and that the practice of offering prizes at the Chrsitmas auction marts should be en- tire ly abandoned. The President appeals to every farmer to help in a united effort to meet n difficult situation; it is only by the willing determina- tion of every farmer to subordinate his own requirements to the general weal of the in- dustry that a serious danger can be met. The President suggests that economy can best be effected in the following directions:— HORSES. W orking horses must be fed on a much smaller allowance of concentrated food than is commonly used. All pleasure horses shouid he turned out to grass as soon as possible. No corn can be spared for horses not engaged in productive work. LMII/CH COWS. L It is necessary to take every step to main- tain the milk supply, especially for next win- ter. The Food Controller has promised that the price of miik for next winter shall not be fixed at ftss than Is 8d per gallon, and this price will be raised should the weather or the shortage of food render it necessary. Having in view the Food Controller's undertaking that the price shall be such as to render the production of milk remunerative, the Presi- dent trusts that every miik producer will take steps to maintain his milking herd. In this direction only there should be no restriction in the feeding such as would cause, a reduction in the production of milk. Economy is, how- ever, possible n) By maintaining the cows as far as possible upon roots, green food, and hay grow n on the farm (2) By adjusting the ration to the milk yiekl and by regular checking of the rations given. Cake should not be given to miich cows on the grass until there are signs that the milk yield is falling off from la k of keep. OTREiK CATTLW. (a) Cake and other concentrated foods should not be given to store cattle other than calves until the final htige of fattening (b) Cattle should he sent to market in a less finished condition that has been custom- ary, using smaller quantities uf cake. Loan meat and a smaller proportion of deadweight are more economical to the nation than prime beef, which, under present condi- tions. is an unpatriotic luxury. SHEEP. Sheep shouid be fattened as far as possible on foods grown upon the farm, with a mini- mum of cake or corn. Leaner meat and earlier slaughter are n^ccj«a.ry. Lambug for next season should he deferred until there is a prospect of keeping the ewes and lambs wthout the extensive use of concentrated foods, PiGS. Materials such as barley or maize that can be used directly for human consumption should not be fed to pigs or any other farm stock. POULTRY. Xo more poultry shouid be kept than can be maintained upon scraps and waste food, with a very small supplement of

I THE TRAIL OF THE BOC HE
THE TR.AIL OF THE BOC HE. Each village that the soldiers of England and France win back from German grasp the same story of deliberate de-> astation of farms carried out to a revolting, degree. In one of the hamlets just recovered in a field where three years ago was an abundant crop of corn, the soldiers discovered fragments of agriclutural machinery scattered over an area of several acres. Implements of every de- scription had been collected from all the neighbouring farms. placed in a henp, and then destroyed hy explosive. In every one of these farming parishes the story is the same fruit trees cut down. cro| s destroyed, and live stock stolen. The Agricultural Relief of Allies Fund, which was started by British farmers, asks for the continued support of the the farming community in view of the great task which lies before it. if it is to give nde- quate help to the agriculturists of our Allies as they are repatriated.
