If Cows Could...

If Cows Could...

These advertisements appeared in the October and November 1933 issues of The Farmer. They were advertisements for “Dominion Dried Beet Pulp”, a feed designed for “dairy cows, show stock, and beef cattle.” Like all beet pulps, this brand was produced as a byproduct of the sugar beet. In this case, it was produced by the Canada and Dominion Sugar Company Ltd. out of Chatham, Ontario. In addition to its low cost, the product was marketed as a nutritious “appetizer and conditioner” for cattle. This demonstrates how newfound knowledge of nutrition science had made its way into feed marketing, as farmers were becoming increasingly aware of the value of vitamins and minerals in maintaining healthy and productive livestock.
