the ndlk should be Weighed dally,
There are several reasons for this.
One la that the ration should he ad-
justed to the weight of milk. A safe
rule, the department experts say. Is
one pound of grain to every three and
one-half or four pounds of milk. An-
other. and perhaps more accurate,
rule Is to feed as many pounds of
grain a day as the cow gives pounds
of butterfat In a week; but this latter
rule Is not so conveniently applied In
the ease of the family cow, because of
the necessity of making a Babcock
test for butterfat.
