Not illustrated. 1920 edition. Excerpt: ...15 parts. This is a simple and effective ration. It is quite concentrated but we have used it with good results. If one wishes to add bulk to it he can do so by giving some wheat middling, or. wheat bran. 2. Corn or barley or mixture of them, 70 parts; ground oats, 20 parts: meat meal tankage, or fish meal 10 parts. 3. Corn 60 narts: oats 15 parts; wheat bran 15 parts; meat meal tankage 10 parts. 4. Corn 70 parts; oats 10 parts; linseed oil meal 5 parts. wheat middlings 5 parts; tankage 5 parts. buttermilk powder 5 parts. If oats are not used the wheat middlings can be increased to 15 parts, or else the 'corn can be raised to take their place. 5. Corn 35 parts; barley 30 parts: oats 30 parts: oil meal 5 parts; in addition allow 5 to 10 pounds of buttermilk or skimmilk per head daily. If one uses semi-solid buttermilk feed about one to two pounds daily. Keep the milk products constant and regulate the gains with the grain mixture. 6. Corn or barley or wheat, or similar grains, or their mixture 70 parts; ground alfalfa 25 parts: meat meal tankage 5 parts.

Corn or barley or similar grains. or a mixture of the three enough to keep in condition; plus 5 to 10 pounds of skimmilk per sow daily, this mixed with enough wheat middlings to make slop. Corn 85 parts; wheat middlings 5 parts; linseed oil meal 5 parts, tankage or fish meal 5 parts. Ground corn 80 parts; ground alfalfa 20 parts....
