Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 20 February 1886
Commercial Fertilizer , for Tobacco . What is the best fertilizer for tobacco ? Where can it be bought , and at what price ? W . F . S . iieedsville . Mo . —Tobacco requires exceedingly strong land and rich in phosphate and nitrogen , to produce tbe best profit from the cultivation of the crop . This will be at once apparent when it is remembered that the cost of setting , cultivating , topping , suckering and handling the crop is almost the same , whether the yield be small or large . Hence , soils rich in potash and humus are sought , since the nitrates so necessary to the crop are produced naturally . If deficient in this respect—and tobacco soon wears out these elements—nitrogen manures would be indicated . This , however , may be yearly supplied by horse manure—solid and liquid—composted to retain the free ammonia . Where these are not available sheep , hog and cow manure in double quantity may be used , especially on sandy land . Thirty loads of the former and fifty to sixty o...

Feeding Oil Meal to Stock . Oil meal is valuable • for several puri . oses . Some prefer it for its oil , nnd therefore object to the new process oil raea . as not so rich in nutrition . This in a mistake . For the purposes of the farmer , the less oil in the meal the greater its value in proportion to its cost . The farmer does not wish to pay a high price for ail article if it can be procured at less cost in another form , hence he should not pay for the fat in oil meal when he can raise it at home , or purchase it cheaply in the shape of corn . The object in purchasing oil meal is to secure the protein or flesh-forming element contained in its composition , and the greater the quantity of oil the more costly the protein . In the use of oil meal the farmer not only provides nitrogenous matter in a concentrated form , but it serves to regulate the system and promote health . The linseed meal is used differently from that made from cotton seed . It should not be fed lavishly at firs...

Tt is not the mere matter of being able tn milk a cow that constitutes a dairy- „ ° an One may be afraid of a cow , and taow nothing at all about handlmg the to _ ta and drawing the milk , and yet know * nore about dairying than he who works among the cows . Fe do not state that a lahymm should not understand the art of milking , but that he should know more . All changes in milk occur when it is at a high temperature . In tact , m all or ganic bodies changes occur more or less rapidly in proportion to heat . Milk , when it comes from the cow , is usually at a , emperature of 90 ° . If the weather is warm , as in July , this temperature will increase , and the higher the point reached , tho more rapidly it ferments and decomposes Having drawn the milk from the cow it will become worthless unless carefully preserved . Hence , the sooner the m...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 20 February 1886
Dont You Do It . The following advice is given by an exchange to those who desire to get rid of extra stock : It is one of the secrets of successful breeding never to keep useless stock . Therefore , hens , as soon as their laying season is over , should be at once fattened for the table , and young cocks treated in the same way any time between the age of three and five months . Stock you wish to retain for breeding purposes must be caretully selected . It is a secret that has been closely followed , the consequence being that the market is overstocked at a time when prices are low . Dont you do it . We agree to the above so far as selling the young cockerels and selecting breeding stock is concerned , but who can tell when the laying season of a hen is over ? True , she will cease for awhile and shed new feathers , but she will begin to lay again as soon as she dons her new plumage . Tho hens that moult early in the season get over the operation in time to begin winter laying , an...

APIARY A Bee-keeper s Staff . A device for taking swarms of bees from trees , that seems practical , is recorded by the Bee Journal as follows : To make the staff use a piece of light timber 1 % inches square , and plane one end eighteen inches in length , and also make it eight-sided . Tho handle may be rounded l s inches in diameter , and any length wanted . Probably two staffs will be handier , one six feet and one twelve feet in length . Now take strips ot tough wood one-fourth of an inch thick , five-eights of an inch wide and twelve inches long , and begin at the end of the staff and nail on a strip crosswise through the center of the strip , and one on the opposite side ; turn the staff one-eight of the way round and nail on another and one opposite . It will take from sixteen to eighteen crosspieces about one inch apart from center to center , each one being nailed with three small nails to hold it well in place . If the staff is stained ( not painted ) a color that resemble...

That Buffalo Cross . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 20 February 1886
That Buffalo Cross . Journals more or less addicted to agriu „™ raise the question of the feasih „? tyot crossing the buffalo of the plains native cattle , to form a hardy cross Zt can rustle for food and stand the SSrfoT Plains winters . Years ago the crots was tried Bast , and was said to have S tetile . That is the progeny of the -. were reported to have inter-bred , ° Tto have been prolific . Yet of late we ^ ve -ot hlar d that the stock there has greased The probability is that the Irols between any two species of the JwnaBos , will be practically infertile , as ; , the case between the mule ( hybrids ) nf any other species . Hence those contemp lating making an indefinitely fertile anb-species between the bison , the true name of our mis-named buffalo ( BosAmeriMiius ) and what we call neat cattle , the ¦ pposed descendant of the genus Bos Taurus , will meet disappointment . But to a limited extent , the animals resulting from a cross . of the male bison and domesticated battl...
