THE POULTRY YARD . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 27 May 1880
THE POULTRY YARD . TWO HUNDRED AND FIFTY THOUSAND FOWLS . A correspondent of the Cincinnati Enquirer has written a long account of a wonderful poultry establishment of Mr . W . C . Baker , of Creskill-on-the-Hudson , in the State of New Jersey . Mr . Baker keeps 2 , 000 laying hens . They are both thoroughbreds and grades , and principally Asiatics , Houdans , Leghorns , Colored Dorkings , and Spanish . Sitting fowls are not desired . These hens are kept in an immense laying-house , which is the largest building on the place . This vast structure is 460 feet long , divided into seventy-five pens , each pen divided into three rooms , or divisions . The pens extend clear through from the front to the back , being six feet wide by twenty feet in depth . The front of the layinghouse is glazed . The floors are graveled and kept dry by underdraining . The front division of each pen is covered on top and outside with open mesh-wire , which in fine weather in the Winter allows open air and ...
THE APIARY . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 27 May 1880
THE APIARY . During dry winds it is well to place shallow tins near the bee-bench , with water and a few pebbles ; the bees require much water when they are feeding the brood , and for lack of a handy supply many are drowned in water-tubs and cisterns . —JR . in London Agl . Gazette . My TORMENTED BACK —Is the exclamation of more tban one poor hard-working man and woman ; do you know why it aches ? It is because your kidneys are over-tasked and need strengthening , aud your system needs to be cleansed of bad humors . Tou need KidneyWort . APIARY HINTS . The crevices about the bee stands and around the hives ought to be searched , for the larvas of the bee-moth are very active . In England this is not so dreaded as an enemy as in the United States . Still it may work much mischief if notchecked in time . From present appearances we do not fear predicting the heaviest honey harvest we have experienced for the past twenty years ; the only thing we fear is that we are not prepared to av...

THE FAT STOCK SHOW REPORT . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 27 May 1880
THE FAT STOCK SHOW REPORT . We have from Secretary Fisher , of the State Board of Agriculture , the report of the 2 nd Annual Fat Stock Show , held at the Exposition Building in this city , November last . The pamphlet also contains the premium list for the 3 rd Show , to be held November 15-20 , of this year . The report upon the last show is of very great value , as the committees seem to have done their work with great thoroughness . They tell not only what animals took the prizes , but why and for what special points each award was made . Let us make a few extracts to illustrate this point : Grand sweepstakes ring , best steer or cow in the Show , premium $ 100 awarded to steer Nichols , exhibited by J . H . Graves , Chilesburg , Ky . The sweepstake prize was awarded to a thoroughbred Shorthorn . He presented such a combination of perfect development that It was difficult for the committee to And a fault . In their opinion there was a little too much prominence In the brisket an...
A SHEEP ACCOUNT [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 27 May 1880
A SHEEP ACCOUNT A Southdown buck , price $ 25 , was selected for his broad and well-shaped frame , and mated with eighteen good sized ewes worth $ 5 each ; there resulted nine pairs of twins , twenty-five lambs in all ; lost one by accident ; they received no forcing of any kind ; the buck lambs were sold to butchers by the pound , many of them at the age of 3 J £ months . The ewe lambs were kept and priced at $ 5 each , which is less than the same quality could be bought for . The credit stands thus : 18 owes at $ 5 $ 90 . 00 1 Southdown buck 25 . 00 14 buck lambs , 1 , 006 lbs ., at 5 c 50 . 00 85 lbs . wool at 88 c 28 . 05 10 ewe lambs at 20 . 30 T « tal . iiSis One of the buck lambs weighed 55 lbs . when 55 days old , and at 132 days weighed 100 lbs . ; the mother was a two year old , and this was her first lamb .

LIVE STOCK NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 27 May 1880
LIVE STOCK NOTES FROM reports of ranchmen and others , in the Colorado Parmer , we learn that the Herefords are coming on very nicely . Messrs . Lord and Cantrell at Pine Grove have given them a severe test as to their rustling qualities during the past severe Winter , and they have come out in first-class condition . Chas . Elwell of Colorado Springs gives similar experience . THE Colorado Springs Live Stock Association now own rome 7 , 000 head of sheep . The Winter was very severe upon them , bnt tho ewes are coming through the lambing season in good shape , though with them as with other flocks the loss of lambs is more than ordinarily large . A THBXE-SREAB ram belonging to Mr . J . Pears , of Mere , Eng ., the well-known sheep breeder , was clipped lately , and Ihe fleece weighed no less than thirty-one pounds . This , it is believed , is the heaviest fleece on record there . Two other rams belonging to the same flock yielded a fleece ot upwards of twentyfour pounds each . CONS...

DIETARY OF STOCK . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 27 May 1880
DIETARY OF STOCK . Professor Leyder draws attention to some of the principles that ought to be kept in view in the dietary of stock , notably that of the horse . The animal system consists of two-thirds liquids and onethird solids . The latter are divided into organic , which dissipates in the form of smoke when burned , and inorganic , the part that remains in the form of ashes . The organic substances are nitrogen , fat , and sugar ; however , very little sugar is found in the living body , although it enters largely into the food . Nitrogen and its compounds represent the principal group of organic substances in the living body ; they form the scaffolding of the organs and the principal element of the blood , as well as the matter of the muscles and the flesh—the muscles , bear in mind , are the active agents of work and strength ; they constitute also the basis of the bones , the nerves , skin , internal membranes , cartilage , hair , and horn . Fatty matter enters but slightly ...

THE DAIRY [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 27 May 1880
THE DAIRY HINTS ON CHURNING . The cream is well stirred just before churning , until all the lumps have disappeared . Now the temperature of the cream is ascertained with a thermometer , and it is either warmed or cooled accordingly . The following averages may be accepted as being best suited : For fresh milk , 68 ° ; for sweet cream , 58 ° ; for soured milk , 68 ; for soured cream , 59 ° , Fahr . In Summer these temperatures are lowered 2 ° to 4 ° , as the cream gets warmer by churning , and the butter is softer in Summer , ana more apt to get smeary , which makes itself felt , especially during hot weather . If the cream is warmer than the temperature -given above , the churning lasts a shorter time , but the butter gets soft ; if it is colder , the churning lasts longer and the yield is not at its height . For these reasons the temperature in churning must be kept within narrow limits , as losses in quantity and quality will otherwise ensue , and the working of such butter is by...
