I KEEP LIVESTOCK IN GOOD CONDITION
It is very poor economy to allow work stock to j
get out of condition, even during the idle sea- j
son. Work animals are fed to produce power,
and proper conditioning through efficient feed- ®
ing is essential.

© For Roughage Equal to Prairie Hay •
When horses or mules are idle, a higher
j proportion of roughage furnishes the most
economical ration. When power is needed,
increase the proportions of power-produc-
ing feeds — COTTONSEED MEAL and
^ farm grains.
