Farm Animals [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 February 1896
Farm Animals Barns A BARN Is a structure for the shelter and care ot domestic animals , machinery , hay , grain , etc . Good barns are made something after this plan . A frame of pine timbers fitted together , inclosed with pine boards one foot wide with the . cracks battened . The whole structure covered by a roof of shingles and supported by a solid stone wall . To give a . description of the best barn for a general farm of 100 acres I think the description later on in this article , of the best barn I ever saw will apply . I consider this barn of about the proper size and proportion for a farm of this size . For general farming I am very much • In favor of one large barn in preference to several small ones . In the first place , 4 t Is much warmer in winter , for it Is full of hay , grain , etc ., which helps to make It warmer than the naked building would be . And yet the same building may be . quite cool in summer , for barns are more or less vacant then , and by the aid of ope...

Practical Dairying Iowa Creameries . I OWA State Dairy Commissioner ) Board man sends us a copy of his report for 1805 . From it we extract the following : There were sixty new creameries built during the year ; forty of them were built in the small dairy counties and twenty in the larger . Of the 774 creameries , 381 are operated by Individuals , 275 by co-oper-ative and sixteen stock companies . The one not classified in both the creamery and cheese factory list , is at Ames , and belongs to the state of Iowa .

Poultry and Bees [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 February 1896
Poultry and Bees . The Useless Rooster HOW common it Is to see at this season of the year on many ( arms a great flock of useless roosters . Many of them have legs ornamented with heavy scales and long spurs denoting a long life , if not a profitable one . Others of them have combs and wattles blackened with frost , Indicating this to be their first winter in a useless life spent among tree tops , in fence corners or quarters that shelter an eggless flock of fowls . This class of poultry bas no place in a well-regulated farm yard , for all the early cockerels not wished for breeding purposes would have been sent to market early in the season as spring chickens ; those designed for breeders would have been cared for properly and not been allowed to get frozen . The old patriarchs would long ago have been consigned to the pot pie and their place in the flock filled with young , vigorous fellows that grace the yard and improve the stock of young birds . If a flock has been left so uncu...
