What is it?


I certainly wasn’t expecting this concoction in the middle of Grandma’s recipe collection:

33# oats

50# wheat

18# meat scraps

5# bone meal

18# bran

3 pts cod liver oil

70# shelled corn

1 1/2# salt

15# alfalfa meal

2# charcoal

Trying to decipher the faded handwritten label at the top of the page explained it all: Chicken Mash. I should not have been surprised. After all, Grandma was a farm girl and a farmer’s wife.
