In September 1893 this station purchased of Mr. C. M. Minkler, of Story county, the six calves used in this experiment, then ranging in age from one to two weeks. These calves were sired by a pure bred Short-horn bull and out of common grade Short-horn cows. They cost the station $5.00 per head. Mr. Minkler is a patron of the Milford Farmers Creamery, and the calves were then having a ration of creamery separator milk, whole oats and hay.
