Feed Dairy Cows Liberally
( 1943) Cannon, Clawson ; Espe, Dwight ; Extension and Experiment Station Publications

With feed and butterfat prices as they are now, it pays a dairyman mighty well to feed grain liberally.

It is patriotic as well as profitable in our food for freedom war effort.

( 1943) Hughes, H. ; Weber, C. ; Extension and Experiment Station Publications

Iowa has sprung into soybean production so fast that farmers still have many questions about the crop even though they grew 2 1/4 million acres last year. But despite their questions, they have learned a great deal, for they are now getting average yields of close to 21 bushels an acre as compared with less than 15 a few years ago.
