Mussehl, F. E. (1925). Better rations - more eggs (University of Nebraska Agricultural Experiment Station Circular No. 33)
Well-bred and well-fed hens are conceded to be economical producers of a very wholesome food product, eggs, but our hens are not miracle workers and they insist on the right kind of raw material for building the egg. Nebraska poultry growers fortunately have all the natural feeds - corn, wheat, oats, barley, and dairy and packing house by-products - readily available at lower cash prices than prevail in most other states, and so our special problem is that of combining them so that eggs may be produced at the lowest cost per dozen.
