There’s money'in milk... for the man who gets
high production per cow. And right now' is the
time when milk prices usually are best for the year.
So why not start feeding for MORE MILK PER
COW. For this job, more dairymen feed, Purina
Milking Chows than any other feed. We don’t say
you’ll get more milk overnight. Feed Purina for
several weeks. Keep a record of the number of cans
you fill a day. We believe you’ll soon agree . . .
PURINA IS THE FEED FOR MILK PROFITS
SPRAY COWS ONLY ONCE A WEEK
with Purina Dairy Spray Concentrate.
Helps keep flies away in the barn and on j
pasture. Costs only pennies per head. /
