School in Auimal lhtsballdry During the period Deccember 3 to 6 a school conducted by a member of the Extension Departmentent of the Agri- cultural college will give a course of in- struction in animal husbandry at Cen- ter. This wi)l not be Held until at least ten persons sign up to ~ake the course. The cost of the course .will be one dollar for the four days. This! money will be used to defray the ex- penses of the instructor while in Center. ] The extension school is a series of continuous meetings attended mainly] by farmers and farmer's wives with a specialist from the Agricultural col- lege as instructor. The school is con- ducted for'educational reasons and is not for entertainment. The time sched- ule each day is from 10 to 12 and from 1 to 4 p.m. Class periods are 45 min- Utes with 15 minutes for relaxation or general discussion. It is desired that insofar as possible school be county wide. Every com- munity should send a delegate or com- mitteeman to the school, paying their expenses if need be. It is expected that the school shall be sufficiently thorough that the delegate will have a real message to take back to the com- !munity. In this connection it may be r suggested that each Farm Hureau com- i mittee has a small amount of money on hand that might be used for the pur- pose of sending this committeeman. The outline of the work this year is covered in the following: FIRST YEAR la Composition of Feeds 2a Calculation and Balancing Rations 3a Stock Judging and Animal Types COMI~OSITION OF FEEDS This is a study of the composition of feeding stuffs as hay, grain, straw, roots, lsilage, etc. The use of food nu- trients will be explained and the stud- ent will be required to make a study of ~nd become familiar with the composi- tion of the common feeding stuffs of the farm. This work will be given dur- ing this year's course. CALCULATION AND BALANCING RATIONS This is a study of the food require- ments of farm animals and the combin- ing of foods to meet these require- ments. Students will be required to make rations, figure costs of produc- tion, show how the farmer may sell and !buy feeding stuffs to an advantage, end to become familiar with all phases [of stock feeding. STOCK JUDGING AND ANIMAL TYPES This is a study of animals according to their conformation as beef and and dairy type in cattle, draft type in horses, mutton and we01 type in sheep, I and lard type in hogs. The best types of animals that can be procured will be used in this work, a~d students will be required to use score cards, do compar- ative judging, wilt be quizzed by their instructor, and be required to give rea- sons, both verbal and writthn. Here is an opportunity for the far- mer who claims he never had a chance to study these things, it is also a chance for the roan'who has made a study of these things to brush up. In short it is a chance to attend an agricultural college and get things that do not ordi- narily come up in routine farm work. This course will be one of the biggest iissets the stockman and farmers can use if they will attend and utilize the knowledge gained. Every farmer and farmer's wife who wants to take this course should enroll with the county agent and deposit hm or her dollar.~ Farm and Livestock Reporter.
