Different Methods of Sowing Clover . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 18 March 1898

Different Methods of Sowing Clover . We have already pointed out to our readers the one great thing to he aimed at in sowing clover seed , namely , to get the seed planted deep enough in well prepared ground to secure moisture sufficient to give it a vigorous , early start Clover is a hard-shelled seed , some of the seeds heing much harder than others—so hard , in fact , that they do not usually grow until they have laid in the ground a year . In this they resemble the honey locust and osage orange , which require soaking in hot water twenty-four hours before they are planted in order to secure germination . Just how deep clover seed should be covered in order to insure this prompt and vigorous germination can he determined only by the farmer himself . We have heretofore given some general directions state which must be regarded as a - ment of principles than as recommendations to each individual . Two or three things must be taien into consideration : First , the nature of the soil...

Feeding Calves with Steers . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 18 March 1898

Feeding Calves with Steers . What is wrong , said a farmer the other day , with my practice of turning calves into the lot with steers on full feed and allowing them to eat all they like ? Our answer was : Nothing wrong , provided you want to fatten tnese calves and sell them in the spring or next summer , but if it is intended to pasture them on grass another year , and possibly keep them through another winter and then fatten them , there is something very seriously wrong . It should he a fixed principle in the mind of the farmer to fatten to a finish all kinds of stock which he has once placed on full feed . We have invariably found in our own experience that where cattle were given all the corn they wanted during the winter and then put on grass , they did comparatively little good for the next two or three months , while cattle that had been kept on a growing ration made gains that were entirely satisfactory . We should change the feed of cattle as little as possible and then a...

Early Seeding of Spring Wheat [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 18 March 1898

Early Seeding of Spring Wheat Seeding of spring wheat began in southern Iowa the second week in March . If like favorable weather continues through the third week , the spring wheat will be nearly all in the ground . The soil is In excellent condition , and when spring wheat of an improved variety is sown before the 20 th of March on a well-prepared seed bed , it has everything in its favor . Spring wheat can be put in this year at very little expense by flrst either cutting the stalks with a stalk cutter or by breaking them off with an iron rail or pole , and burning them if desired . Where a suitable drill is not at hand , the wheat can then be sown and cultivated in , and the ground crossharrowed and the grass seed sown whether with the wheat or immediately after the cultivation and before the harrowing . If there Is plenty of mois ture in the ground this will do . If not , we would prefer sowing the seed with the wheat We are following a little different method this year , namel...

Mangels . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 18 March 1898

Mangels . We advise our readers who wish to provide something in the shape of succulent food for breeding ewes or brood sows in the spring of the year to gr o • as an experiment a quarter of an acre of mangels this year . They could be drilled in on good ground prepared ns if for corn , thoroughly cultivated between the rows , and weeded and thinned at the proper time . Most farmers will plant them the same width as corn . This is throwing away land . They will stand much narrower cultivation . The yield in dry matter is practically the same as in sugar beets , while the labor of harvesting sugar beets is twice as much as of mangels . Sugar beets , however , will succeed on low ground better than mangels , for the reason that on such ground the frost liable to come in September which would kill the mangels , or at least seriously Injure them , long before they have finished their growth , will scarcely injure the sugar beets at all . We have grown both , and in valleys would give th...

Corn Culture . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 18 March 1898

Corn Culture . Mr . B . M . Golding , recognized as one of the best farmers of Carroll county , gives us , by request , his methods of growing corn , as follows : I practice rotation of crops . I keep about a hundred head of sheep every year which bring about $ 500 ; raise good clover hay ; draw out all the manure ; plow to a depth of five or six inches in the spring , and from six to seven in the fall . I get a good seed bed before I plant corn ; I keep ahead of the weeds , and use a Tower Surface Cultivator , cultivating three times . I have followed this plan , checking and going crosswise over the surface for five years , and can say , and my neighbors will bear me out in it , that I raised better corn in the year 1897 than those using shovels . I can keep my corn free from weeds , and my horses free from sores , with the Surface Cultivator . This is an admirable statement in a general way as to the best methods of growing corn , and we feel disposed to comment a little upon it ...

Mangels for Stock . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 18 March 1898

Mangels for Stock . To W-T . T . SCM r _ m __ a _ Mr . P . D . Lynn , Lenexa , Kan ., writes asking about mangels for stock . In a recent issue he will see that I have fed the Golden Tankard Mangel to my cows and brood sows at farrowing time and they have been very satisfactory . I am interested in the answer he has given about cooking feed for hogs . I usually soak shelled corn for my shoats when on clover in the summer , and they always do well . Last winter , or rather this winter , I heated corn in a barrel with a galvanized iron pipe down in the corn , on the same plan as a tank heater , and while the corn waa yet hot mixed in the water and ground oats , making a nice slop . My fall pigs did nicely on this feed . The Eperiment Stations do not seem to favor cooked food , but I would like to hear the opinion of others on this question . W . P . SMITH , Ackworth , Iowa .

To Improve the Institutes . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 18 March 1898

To Improve the Institutes . To Wii . t . tnas -TAB-Ont The farmers institute season for 1897-8 is nearly spent , and Iowa has recorded another years institute work . Many good institutes have been held , and the Iowa farmer is coming to appreciate them more and more , especially where they have been beld , and yet one-half or less of the counties of the state do not avail themselves of our institute law , presumably for want of a few wide-awake , energetic , progressive men to lead off in the work . Again , as the season of 1897-8 draws to a close , we look around us to see what has been done , and , outside of a few institutes that we have personally attended , know nothing of the good things said and done at other institutes , all for want of a central head to our system to whom the best papers and discussions thereon could be sent • for publication into a hand-book of agriculture , to be distributed among the fanners and other citizens of Iowa , as tue more progressive institute ...

Notes . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 18 March 1898

Notes . ID WAXXAO-S FA ____ - > With the advent of March we are well aware that seed time will soon be here and the pushing farmer will have all his team work done that can be and with the coming of muddy weather will have some jobs laid up that can be done in doors , such as looking over the tools that will be used during the spring to see if any repairs are needed . The cleaning of seed should occupy a part of the time , so that all foreign seeds may be taken out and all small and imperfect grains . I clean the oats thoroughly , blowing over or screening out fully one-fourth of them , then I have 75 per cent of the best , of course . What is cleaned out need not be wasted , as some of the animals will eat them and be benefited . • I think it will pay any farmer that sows fifteen to twenty acres of small grain and is permanently located , to own a fanning mill . Sowing unclean seed produces an uneven stand to a certain extent as there are some pieces of straw , some chaf...
