Washington. D. C„ Oct. 9.- Re.ause
the abundant suptplv of cottonseed
eal that there is likeiv to be in this
luntry this year, specialists in the
partment believe that the farmer has
better opportunity to make money by
eding beef cattle than for some years
tst. The feeling value of cottonseed
eal has been recognized by agricul
ral authorities for some time and
rge quantities of it are exported an
'ally to Europe where the farmers. ;
pp. ially those in Denmark, are also I
vare of its usefulness. It now seems!
tely that the price of cottonseed meal
ill continue to be considerably lower
an in recent years and the American
rnier should therefore utilize it to ad
int age to make cheap gains.
Causes That Lower Price
Two causes combine to lower the
■ice of cottonseed byproducts. In the
t place the cotton crop in t.iie South
lis year is good, and in the next rhe
ireign markets have been seriously
tert'ere.i with bv the Ku rope an war.!
is estimate I this year 15,000,- 1
t>o bales of cotton will be produced in
ie I'nited States. This should yield
,680,000 tons of seed. All of this, of
iiirse. will not be crushed, but if last
car's proportions hold good again
lout 1',000,000 tons of cottonseed meal ;
ill be available. I<ast year approxi
:'.tely 400,000 tons were sent abroad,
nder present conditions it is not profi
le that anything like this quantity
ill be exported this year, and. as the
>tton crop is larger than before, it is
ife to assume that the quantity of cot-!
in see, I meal on the home market will
:■ 500,000 tons more than last year,
his situation has alrea ly resulted n
substantial drop in the price of cot- '
mseed byproducts. Cottonseed meal
in now be bought in the South at
rices ranging from $22 to $2 4 per ton
stead of $27 to s3l demanded last 1
ear. An even greater doorcase has
iken place in the price of cottonseed
ulls, which are now selling at from
4.50 to $5.50 a ton instead of ST to
3 a ton.
Cheaper Than Linseed Meal
At these prices cottonseed meal is
pproximately sls per ton cheaper than
nseed meal, and in addition its feed
lg value is a trifle higher. It seems
bvious, therefore, that the cattle fee i
r all over the country should utilize
ottonseed meal to a far greater ex ;
»pt than he has done in the past.
This meal is very rich in protein, and
is usually considered that its feeding 1
alue is at least twice that of corn. !
n other words one pound of cottonseed
leal is equal to two pounds of corn
or feeding cattle. A small portion of
ottonseed meal has an even greater
plative value where the ration would !
therwise be composed entirely of foe Is
igh in carbohydrates, su 'h as corn, l
nru stover and timothy hay. This is
xtremely important to cattle feeders
hroughont the corn belt and other '
tates where much corn is fed. Tn In
iana for example, it was found that
he addition of one pound of cotton
seed meal to a ration of corn and
•lover hay resulted in a saving of
.37 founds of • orn and 1.41 pounds
f clover hav. This means that if corn
as worth "0 cents a bushel and clover
ay sls a ton. each ton of cottonseed
teal fed the cattle saved the farmer
55.40 worth of other feed, ith cot
onseed meal at s'24 a ton this is a
et saving of $31.40—a saving well
Fed to Cattle in South
As a matter of fact cottonseed meal
as been the principal concentrate fed
o cattle in the South for years. In
xperiments conducted by tihe Bureau
f Animal Industry t was found that
fith this as t he only cbneentrated feed
.ains could be made on steers very
conomi ally. 350 pounds of meal often
.reduced as nruch as 100 pounds of
;aiu. When fed .judiciously six pounds
f cottonseed meal a day for a period
f 100 to 120 days does not prove
larmful to mature steers. If the steers -
,re to be fed for a longer period, how
ver, the amount fed should not be
nore t'han four pounds a day. For win
ering cattle it is hard to tind a better
r more economical ration and a little
odder or stover. Mature cattle can be
Wintered on a ration of thirty poun-ds
It' silage, two pounds of cottonseed
heal and about Ave pounds of some dry
tough age. On such a ration steers will
>ass through the winter in exceedingly
food condition and even gain something
n live weight.
But in addition to its feeding value
(lie fertilizing value of cottonseed meal
s very high—so high indeed that often

GLASS OF SALTS
If Your Back Is Aching or Bladder

and Eat Less Meat
When your kidneys hurt and your
back feels sore, don't get scared and
proceed to load your stomach with a
lot of drugs that excite the kidneys
and irritate the entire urinary tract.
Keep vour kidneys clean like you keel*
vour bowels clean, by flushing them
with a mild, harmless salts which re
moves the body's urinous waste and
stimulates them to their normal ac
tivity. The function of the kidneys is
to filter the blood. In 24 hours they
strain from it 500 grains %f acid nnd
waste, so we can readily understand the
vital importance of keeping the kidneys
Drink lots of water—you can't drink
too much; also get from any pharmacist
about four ounces of .'ad Salts; take
a tablespoonful in a glass of water
before breakfast each morning for a
few days and your kidneys will act fine.
This famous salts is made from the
acid of grapes and lemon juice, com
bined with lithia, ami has been used
for generations to clean and stimulate
clogged kidneys; also to neutralize the
acids in urine so it no longer is n
source of irritation, thus ending blad-

. more obvious. To put the case in an
other way; When one includes in his
i calculations the enrichment of the land

Most Profitable Feed
In view of these facts, specialists in
. the department recommend cattle feed
ers in all parts of the country to se
cure prices on rottonseed byproducts
and to take advantage of tlie .heap
foods that they provide. No other form
I of concentrated feed, the specialists say.
will prove as profitable as eottonsee I
; meal this year. In the South the feed
ers have an opportunity to get these-bv
products at lower pri.es than at anv
other time during the last ten years.
Combined with farm-grown fee.lsi such
as corn silage, thev#*hould be able to
secure gains very cheaply, and with the
present high prices for finished cattle,
j make good profits. Incidentally it may
be said that if such a movement tends
to strengthen and steady the market
tor cottonseed byproduct's, this will in
itself be of considerable assistance
'o cotton growers in the South.
