AGRICULTURAL . [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 20 June 1868

AGRICULTURAL . Selections uid Condensation ! . Sad Habits of Cattle . It is sometimes . the case that cows , from some cause or other , acquire a habit of kicking . Some woold seem to be natural kickers , from their propensity to do so from tbeir first coming . In . If such be the fact , and they persist in Iti the better way ls , If they are not extraordinary good ones , to turn them off for fattening into beef . But if valuable for the dary , tbey can be easily managed . Our own process has been to take the Iron forceps , used for holding cattle by the nostrils , and tying them by a rope or strap to a beam everliead , and drawing up their noses at an elevation , and then securing them , while tbey are milked . If that is not effective , a leather strap , with a loop just back of thc buckle end , through which is put the other end , Is the best instrument or the purpose . Put this around one leg , just above the hock joint , run the smaller end through the loop , that It may not sl...

HORTICULTURAL . , [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 20 June 1868

HORTICULTURAL . , f The Orchard in June . . ; Some persons 6 eem . to think that fruit trees may ., be left to take care of themselves in Summer ; at all events , they act as if tbey thought so , for they do not pay the slightest attention to their trees from the time that the blossoms appear until the fruit begins to ripen . Of course , we allude to formers who have the preparation of the soil forthe spring crops , the sowing or planting of these crops , their after-culture and harvesting to attend to , and sometimes lt is an impossibility to pay that attention to tbe orchard which is necessary , in order to preserve the trees from damage from various causes . It generally happens that where there s a will there s a way , and once the evil effects of neglecting fruit trees in Summer is impressed upon an Orchardlst or farmer , he is not likely soon to forget it . An entire crop of fruit is sometimes lost by the depredation of Insects , and these pests might have been prevented from ...

Condition of Farm Stock in fhe United States . [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 20 June 1868

Condition of Farm Stock in fhe United States . Hon . HORACE CAFBON , Commissioner of Agriculture , in a recent letter , says * . The annual Inquiry Into the condition of farm stock in the United States at the close of Wiutir , and the diseases and mortality of the past year , has just been ^ made by the statistical division of this department , and its results have been analyzed and condensed It shows that the past Winter has been unusually favorable to the health of domestic animals , and that , leanness and feebleness , which might almost be said to be the rule . throughout whole States one year ago , are now tbe rare exception . The uniformly low temperature of the Western States , with the absence of s / vere storms , while causing the consumption of an unusual amount of hay , grain , and fodder , proved conducive to health and fine condition ; so that returns of condition are , everywhere burdened with such phrases as very good , extra stood , excellent , better than for years ...

— . » m . — - — . — . , ; Wool Growers Resolutions . * , . Among others , the- Wool Growers : Associations of Washington Co ., Ontario and Livingston Cos :, and of Onondaga , all of N . Y ., have passed resolutions denouncing the one-third shrinkage rules of the buyers , anddemandingthat wool shall be bought like other farm products , on its merits , the condition and value of each lot determining its value . All wool growers are fully of this mind , and if they will act on their convictions , refusing to sell their wool under any uniform and arbitrary ; rule of shrinkage , and at the same time conceding the riehtand duty of the buyer to make such deduction as the condition of each lot of wool requires , these rules will soon be things of tbe past . Resolving to do these things is well , doing them is vastly better and more effective . If we can have a full show of wools of all classes , at Chicago in August next , to practically illustrate the injustice of uniform rules of shrinkag...

- — y m m Fruit Growing in Hew York . The whole State Of New York is productive in fruits in certain seasons—when frosts or cold winds fall to destroy the hopes ofthe cultivator—but there is a portion of the State in which a crop of grapes and apples Is comparatively certain . The apple thrives throughout the State In favorable seasons—the grape only in a small portion . The small fruits are abundant all over , wherever cared for , except It may be cherries , plums and currants . • ..: ¦• - , . Latterly the grape has received greatly increased attention , and suitable lands borderlng . on the numerous lakes of the State have largely enhanced . In pirice . Soil hitherto thought to be nearly worthless because of Its steep , rocky , roush surface , has advanced from a price barely covering the timber standing , or the value for pastoral purposes , to $ 200 per acre , and when well set in grapes In bearing , to fabulous prices . Such lands are found along the Crooked and Seneca Lakes . ...

A Note of Thanks . I consider every number of yonr valuable paper worth the money charged for the whole fifty-two numbers . I will give an instance of its value : —I have a horse that got badly galled , In both shoulders two years ago . I in the first place tried varions medicines which I had used successfully before , but in this case they proved ineffectual . I then consulted several ; persons who styled themselves skillful veterinarians , but with no better success . In the meantime I became a reader of THB WESTERN BUBAL , and through Its columns consulted Mr . MUBBil , Veterinary Surgeon , who advised me as to what to do for my horse . I complied with his directions and in less than two weeks my horse s shoulders were healed as sound as they ever were , and I used the horse nearly every day during the time . I had expended over twenty dollars in trying different remedies advertised as never-rail-ing cures in cases of galled shoulders , which was worse than thrown away , whereas ...

Humanity to Animals . [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 20 June 1868

Humanity to Animals . At a recent meeting of the American Institute Farmers Club , Mr . Henry Bergb , President of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals said : The Society to which he had the honor to belong , had lately offered a reward of f 100 . 00 for some Invention more suitable and painless to oxen than the yoke in common use . The mode of fastening by attaching the yoke to the horns of the oxen , is also liable to a serious objection . In some parts of the country where flies abound , the animal is unable by shaking its head , to get rid of these annoyances . Where files are not troublesome this mode may be the best . The use of blinds on horses injures the sight of these animals , and renders them more timorous and dangerous than if tbe full use of their eyes was allowed . In Russia , . where he bad passed many years , he had never a blind or a check-rein . Can we not improve upon the material and form of- the iron bit , so as not to lacerate the mouth and bru...
