4 cry effort has been made by our farmers' institutes to encourage the co-operative system. "Dairying is something that will not reach its greatest possibilities unless it is properly encour aged. The support it has received in our state by the legislature has made it the towering industry of the state, and Minnesota now occupies one of the foremost places as a dairying district of all the states of the Union. lam not aware whether any of the members of the legislature of the two states are present, but if they are, I want to say that the industry must be nursed by the legislature. With us our legislature's liberality enables meetings to be held in every part of the state every year. The very best talent on the American continent is brought together to talk on these subjects, and why shouldn't the farmer be given these privileges? He pays a large share of the taxes and is entitled to them. "Ontario is another country where they foster dairying. I remember a number of years ago when ...

the calves. This will form a scab and does not give great pain. For mature stock a dehorning clipper is most serviceable." Prof. Shaw: "In speaking of distinct breeds for the dairy you don't mean that it would be wise to make a large investment to secure special purpose stock? Would it not be better to get good grades and gradually weed out and improve?" A. "Certainly. The plan I would recommend is to get a Babcock tester and keep the best cows and let the others go." Q. "What do you think of a cross between the Holstein and Jersey?" A. "There will be no particular advantage in it. It is like many other crosses that are made with the idea of harmonizing extreme features and might lean toward one type or the other. Such ex * periments remind me of the man up at Whatcom who said that his mother required a long time to eat and his father ate quite rapidly. The result was that he was both a long and a rapid eater. There is just one method of improving anything. That is by killing the po...

fi elements in our stock foods that are found in the condensed grain rations used in the colder climates. Our animals will do better, and live longer, if we supply them with a diet better suited to the climatic conditions. Tn the dairy districts of the old world, where a similar climate is found, animals are fed on succulent food throughout the entire year. If winter is the most propitious season for dairy men in the colder climates, it is doubly true on this Western coast. Our mild winters should be the harvest season for the dairymen, and they are when he is provided with a suitable food supply. Granting that there is an abundance of green food produced in certain localities during the winter, there is still a great hindrance to the success and the comfort of the dairyman, due to the muddy yards and fields where stock is permitted to run. The silo helps to solve all these questions by fur nishing a means of preserving the expense for there is no heed of hand labor. If planted in d...

Milk exposed to an atmosphere near the silo for any length of time will very rapidly absorb the odors peculiar to silage. The same is true of any other odor. Silage should be fed after milking hours or in the middle of the day. All silage re maining in the manger should be removed before the next feed is given the animal. This refuse must not be thrown on the floor of the stable, for it will sour and produce very unwholesome odors. All Kinds of stock will eat silage and do well upon it, but its chief value lies in feeding it to dairy cows and to young animals. It is possible by using silage to keep the young animals thriving, and even to make better growth than when kept upon good pasturage. In developing young cows there is nothing better than this nutritive succu lent food. Silage Compared With Root*. Roots furnish a good succulent food for dairy stock, but it costs more to produce a given food value in roots than it does in corn silage. In a country where hand labor is so dear, t...

8 to manage successfully. She readily responds to good care and feed, but exposure and neglect is quickly noticeable in the pail and churn. Her stable should be capacious, well ventilated, and furnished with all the sunlight possible, without uncomfort able heating. Sunlight and pure air are nature's destructive agents for tuberculosis, as the bacilli cannot survive long under these conditions. "Breeders should endeavor to eliminate from the herd all extremely delicate animals, as they should not be permitted to propagate their kind to increase the susceptibility to disease. "Consanguineous breeding should be discouraged, because of its tendency to lower the vitality of the herd." DiMI'UMHioII. Q. "In this section of the country would you think it necessary to salt the cattle?" A. "Yes; it should be kept where they can reach it at all times. It aids digestion." Dr. Nelson: "What is the extent of tuberculosis in Oregon?" A. "Very slight. This state, by the way, was the first in the U...

of sunshine or cheer. You see the faithful wife and mother so careworn. They remind me of a plant drooping for want of water and sunshine. I say that a man who lives that kind of a life, no matter how well he has prospered, has lived in vain. He is not a full grown man. It is not right. When I go away from here I will think of the fishes I have seen. I will think of 'drunk stores,' and of thousands of homes of well-to-do people, the most of which have no flowers. It is so easy to have (lowers, and they do so brighten up and transform a home. A great many florists make us think that it is such a very difficult thing to propagate plants. You can take an ordinary soup plate and fill it with sand and keep it perfectly wet. You can propagate plants in this just as well as the florist can. It will hold 160 to 170 slips that you press into the sand, and in 15 days they will have sent down a root, and be ready for transplanting. One of my boys has made several hundred roses in just this way...

112 (Continued from page 0.) leave the separator. "Shall the separator be operated on the farm where the milk is produced or in a central factory? This is a question that is receiving considerable discussion at the present time. Many persons own ing farm separator! are sending their cream to fac tories, believing it to be more profitable than mak ing up the butter themselves. The ordinary farm, supporting 10 or 15 cows, is seldom equipped to make butter equal to that made in a large factory by an expert who makes butter-making his busi ness. The present tendency toward the use of the farm separator will not lessen the need for a cen tral point where the butter shall be made. "There are two strong points in favor of the use of the separator on the farm, rather than in the factory, viz.: a better quality of skimmilk and cheaper transportation. "If the whole milk is sent to the factory, by the time the skimmilk is returned to the farm it has been mixed with the milk from other farms, w...

stand that you get as high as 55c per bushel for your barley, while I have fed it at IGc in Minne sota. This is a big difference. The question has been put whether cattle can be fattened on alfalfa. 1 am ready to admit that beef can be gotten into passable shape, but the best results are not ob tained." Question—Do I understand that you believe sheep can be raised profitably in the woodlands here? A.—Yes; if they are not too heavily timbered, and the fern is removed. I firmly believe that where opened for grass it will support one to two sheep per acre easily. Prof. Shaw continued his argument in favor of rapid development. He stated that it was not alto gether the question of feeding a stipulated quanti ty, but largely also assimilation by the animal. A "Last winter I bought a carload of cattle on the range. There was one big, calm, mild-eyed steer that gained as high as 2% pounds per day. An other steer that was nervous and restless gave th r ee-fourths of a pound per day. Both we...

70,000 people, energetic, progressive—in fact thor oughly business-like. My friend, Mr. Miller Free man, of Ranch and Range, contributes an article in which he gives some figures relating to the live stock importance of the Pacific northwest. Mr. Freeman's paper by the way, is gaining favor and there is no doubt but that Washington will be heard from as one of the substantial agricultural states in the near future. The Oriental trade and the Klon dike boom have afforded an outlet for surplus agri culture of the Pacific coast. Hitherto the miners of Montana, Idaho and the Kootenai have depended on the Pacific slope for supplies; they are now looking to the northern central states, Wisconsin, Minne sota, lowa, etc. Washington, like Montana, is want ing more and better stock. A particular interest is "Wng displayed in swine. Good hogs are in great demand. The impression that one gets by observation and conversation in the northwestern states is one of immensity of the live stock intere...

16 (Contlnnsd from pagt U.) pipe about one foot long. One end of this is bent so as to form what is generally known as a goose neck. This is placed in the wall a little above the floor so that the straight part is outside the wall and the curved part inside. The result is that when the air comes through the pipe it is blown against the wall and causes no direct draught on the ani mal. The ventilation above may be the common cupola. I believe that it is a very good thing to place par titions between the cows, so that they are entirely separated from one another in the stable. This will tend to lessen the spread of certain diseases that may gain access to the herd. The hay mow should not be above the cows in the stable, as it is a con stant source of dust and dirt. It is much better to keep the feed in another room. The very best of foods must be fed to dairy cows. It is impossible for a dairy cow to convert poor, musty, mouldy, sour food into pure, sweet milk. Not only this, but it m...
