I Che Dairy ] [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 July 1903
I Che Dairy ] ¦ amlii ¦ ¦&gt;»» s »* p ¦—ys TO RAISE A BEEF CALF . Suggestions by Alex . A . Arnold , Galesville , Wis . Calves should have good , growthy mothers ; with care on these points desirable steers can be produced from all cows except the so-called most pronounced dairy type . These have their place but not in the feed lot . The best kind of a calf that will ripen into an ideal steer may be obtained by raising him on his dam , but in many parts of Wisconsin , where lands are high , it is doubtful if there is enough of laborsaving to justify this method where it is intended to keep a steer until ti is about 2 Vi years old . In raising calves by hand , new milk Bhould be fed warm from the cow for at least one month , and then gradually get to skim milk , always fed at about blood heat ; taken slowly and in limited quantities . When 5 weeks old a good calf will like a little hay , and shortly a few oats , and these should be increased as fast as practicable and not fe...
Jersey Cattle [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 July 1903
Jersey Cattle THE CALVES . Take care of the calves . On many rms it is a common experience that , ung stock do not much mere than &gt; Id their own from fall till spring . hat growth they get comes almost itirely from pasturing , and too many cases this be- ) mes appreciable only after they ive entered upon their second nmmer . This is all wrong . Calves •• ouia be kept growing during their rst winter for several reasons . In ie first place it is foolish and costly o throw away the feed for a whole ¦/ inter , and get no return for it . Then t is unquestionably true that calves aised for the dairy are often dwarfed i-i their productive powers , and their uture usefulness , crippled by the lack bf care and proper food for growth in their younger days . If it is profitable Co raise calves at all , it is most profitable to keep them growing thriftily from the day of their birth until they reach maturity . Here are three essentials to be kept in mind during the calf s first winte...

Swine j ¦¦¦¦¦¦¦¦ »—»»«¦ ¦ «» » s ..... HOG NOTES . With hogs , as with other stock , the cost of keep increases with age . It is not the best of economy to feed all sizes of hogs together . A mixed ration will make cheaper pork than corn alone . Tn no case should pigs be allowed to become muddy ln their nest . Know that every hog comes to his feed at every feeding . Pigs will thrive better on a variety of feed , including slops , than on any other ration . If a hog is off feed , try to ascertain the cause . Try a change of rations . A brood sow will thrive better , keep healthier and bring better pigs if she has plenty of exercise . It the farmer cannot grow clover , it , will be best not to attempt to keep many hogs . It is hardly possible to improve any of the standard breed of hogs by a single cross . While a good , thrifty condition is essential in a breeding boar , an excess of fat is detrimental . An abundance of good feed , mixed with a good deal of care and attention , Will ...

«¦¦¦«¦ - ¦¦¦¦¦«¦¦¦¦» ¦¦ ** &gt; i Sheep j »»»¦¦¦¦ -- ¦¦¦¦»»»¦¦»¦•¦» SHEEP NOTES . A lamb s cotted fleece is much more worthless than the fleece of old sheep . As the hot , dry days come on , be sure that the sheep have water daily . The profit with sheep is not all in the wool . The lamb counts for something . Better cull at an early age than to wait until the sheep has lost you money . The average shrinkage of wool is about fifty per cent ., although it varies greatly . Usually a poor sheep sells meaner in market than any other kind , of stock . Clover is the best of all forage plants for sheep if well grown and properly cured . Ewes will produce larger and better lambs if they are in a good , plump condition at the time of coupling . When the , lambs are to be weaned , the ewes should be put on rather scant pasture for a few days . Lambs can be kept thriftier if they are fed a little bran and corn meal at the time of weaning . Particular attention should be paid to the sec...

The rattle of • cars and heavy wagons over the pavements , the screeching of whistles , and the roar of machinery are all artificial , • unnatural sound— , and they are dinned into his ears from birth until death . He rarely listens to the myriad . voices of nature , the song of birds , the babbling of brooks , or the soughing of the wind in the pines . In cities all the objects seen are artificial , and all the lines are masses of bricks , stones and mortar , formed into sharp angles which obtrude everywhere , instead of the graceful curves of streams , hillsides , ana foliage . What beauty exists is man-made and conventional ; and all this—in America , at least , —is yet so rare , so mixed with ugliness , that tt must be sought diligently to be found . —Success .
