The Head of the Herd . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 25 March 1898
The Head of the Herd . One of the most difficult problems which the farmer has now to meet is how to get cattle good enough to eat tame grass and good corn . The experience of feeders in the last six months has taught them a lesson that they will not soon forget Cattle good enough to eat tame grass and Western corn have been high in the stocker and feeder market selling right up to the price of ordinary fat cattle , and when finished selling in the beef market at an advance that gave a fair profit to the feeder . There has been no profit on any other kind of cattle , and in many cases severe loss . Neither in the beef market nor in the stocker and feeder market have there been enough of these to go around . The simple fact is that they are not in the market and will not be until they are grown . This will be a work of two or three years , and the man who puts himself in shape to grow the best type of cattle has an assured profit awaiting him . There are several conditions to be met ...
What was Wrong ? [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 25 March 1898
What was Wrong ? Quite a number of farmers state to us in private conversation methods which they have adopted with ditferent kinds of stock , and ask us what was wrong and how lt could be corrected . For instance , one farmer says : My neighbor fattened his steers largely this year on oats instead of corn . In what did his mistake consist ? First Oats are not a desirable fattening food for any kind of stock . They consist largely of flesh formers , constituting a tairly well balanced ration for work horses , because they replace the waste of musclar tissue , and for growing pigs and lambs where the muscle is to be formed or grown instead of replaced . The food above all others for any kind of stock is corn , and merely enough of other grains to give variety . The method was wrong because the wrong kind of feed was used . Second . It was wrong , because had they been equal to corn for fattening purposes they were entirely too expensive . The price of oats at that time was 22 c for 3...
Some Fi . t Principles . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 25 March 1898
Some Fi . t Principles . Mr . W . W . Bluogh , of Brown County , writes Wallaces Farmer as follows : Please give your best theory on sowing oats . Should the ground be plowed first and the oats sown broadcast , or should the oats be sown and disked in , or should they be drilled and cultivated ? Also , whether it pays to double list for corn and should the press throw the old row out first or last ? Does it hurt to give sows milk and slop ? In this latitude if oats are sown on corn ground we prefercutting the corn stalks with a cutter , or breaking them oft and burning them , and then having cleaned the ground , sow the oats broadcast and disk or cultivate them in . If we plowed the land at all we would plow shallow , and if the season were dry and we could plow not more than thiee inches , we would plow them in . \\ e have had no experience in drilling oats , but propose to try it this year , lue neighborhood experience in the correspondent s own section would be his best guide .

Orphan Foals . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 25 March 1898
Orphan Foals . Every now and then a farmer has the misfortune to lose a brood mare and have an orphan foal on his hands . He generally regards this as a calamity and concludes that the colt may as well die , as it will not be worth raising . This is a mistake . Colts can be grown on cow s milk , but it is necessary to note the difference between cow s milk and mares milk , or nature s balanced ration for the two classes of young things . Mare s milk has a little more water in it than cows milk , has less than two-thirds of the casein or cheesy matter , about one-third of the fat , about 25 per cent more sugar , and about one-half as much ash . The first thing to do is to move its bowels , if an orphan , by a dose of castor oil , which takes the place of the colostrum , or the first milk of the mare . Then take cows milk , warm it to blood heat add to it at least one-fourth its volume of water , and then make it sweet by adding sugar . This can be fed by using a bottle with a rubber ...
Corn for the Gulf . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 25 March 1898
Corn for the Gulf . There is every indication that a large proportion of Iowa corn will hereafter seek an outlet to the foreign market by way of the Gulf . The Kansas City , Pittsburg &amp; Gulf road has already finished its line to Pattonsburg , Missouri , and there remains but a comparatively small section between Cainsville and Pattonsburg to be completed when Des Moines will have , with the Keokuk &amp; Western , which will be the northern extension of the Pittsburg &amp; Gulf , a direct line to Port Arthur . We understand that a very large elevator is to be built in Des Moines during the coming summer , equipped with the most complete and perfect facilities for cleaning in transit grain destined for the seaboard . This will enable dealers on all lines centering in Des Moines to avail themselves of the low rates which this line is making nowithstanding the opposition of all other lines . The passage of the pooling bill , would of course rob the farmers of...

Harnessing the Horse . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 25 March 1898
Harnessing the Horse . BY J . J . EDGEKTON , IOWA AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE . 1 Continued from lant weik la hitching to the load , the adjustment of the traces , so as to bring the horse as near as possible to his work without danger of injuring his heels or hocks , is not the only element to be considered . Having the point of attachment to the load at a fixed height the traces must be adjusted , not only to free the horse from danger of bruising , but also to bring the line of draught into proper relation with the shoulder and with the propelling powers of the animal . Great care should be served in making a hitch to any load , that it be in accordance with economy of draught and with the accomplishment of the best work possible . It is an old and popular idea that a loadeu wagon will draw easier when the greater portion of the load is placed over the fore wheels . As a rule the horse will do his work more easily to be placed near to it ; there being less lost motion . The driver also ...
Sheep ProDlems . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 25 March 1898
Sheep ProDlems . Mr . J . J . Taylor , of Winnebago county , Iowa , writes : I have been keeping sheep with very good success on the same pasture of blue grass and white clover seeded fourteen Tears ago . There is a splendid sod . I keep cows and sheep—a hundred ewes and their lambs—in the same pasture . Shall I have to plow up this pasture on account of worms in sheep and take clover and timothy meadow instead ? Will it furnish as much feed as the blue grass pasture ? We have lost some lambs and I think it is worms from the description given in Wallaces Farmer . A few sheep and lambs cough considerably his winter as if there were something in their throats or windpipes . Is there anything I can give them ? If it should be best to plow up the pasture , what would be the best crop to grow ? Would not the cut worms trouble ? If the sheep were out of the pasture part of the summer , would it answer as well as to keep them off the land for a year ? This is an interesting letter , becaus...
Cosset Lambs . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 25 March 1898
Cosset Lambs . Nearly every farmer with any considerable flock of sheep Is under the necessity of rearing one or more lambs by hand . They can be fed with cow s milk from a teapot , over the spout of which a rubber cot with an opening in the end has been placed ; jor an ordinary nursing bottle may be used . Professor Henry recommends that the lamb should be fed fifteen or eighteen times a day ; later , half a dozen times . This is oftener than they are likely to get fed on the farm unless the women folks have an interest in the lambs .

Feeding . for the Gain . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 25 March 1898
Feeding . for the Gain . The Le Mars ( Iowa ) Post of February 25 th makes the following rental , bie statement : •• The Henry Wallace Farmers advocacy of feeding in transit and feeding lor the gain has got a number of good nonest people in this part in a place that they are at a loss to know just wuere they are at about this time in tne year 1 SS 9 S . Henry had better publish a series of articles on the cneap coin , as it ettects the farmer that is teeding 4 . 25 and 4 . 50 cattle . We wonder it the editor of the Post e \ er reads the Farmer or has any Knowledge of the rates given on feeding catue in that section ot the country . To begin with , we have never heard of feeding-., transit rates on any of the lines running through Le Mars , lt farmers had had those rates Uiey would have been better ott by $ _ U 0 per car than they are now . Wallaces Farmer has never advocated leeding tor the gain . There are times when corn is 10 cents or 12 cents per bushel and the stock of high qua...
Horse Feeding . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 25 March 1898
Horse Feeding . Professor H . J . Patterson of Dhe Maryland Agricultural E xperimenit Station , calls attention to the fact that in spite of tlhe greait usefulness of the horse the character of the food and the manner of feeding that is best suited to 13118 class of animals have been very Uttile Studied . The State of perfection to which the higher class of horses has been brought in this country is due to the attention SUme A-utter , Manufactured by Kelly &lt; V TaneyhUl , Waterloo , Iowa . given in the selection of the best types . As regards feeding , the objects sought are rather different from those desired in feeding other classes of stock . From the birth of the horse until the arrival ait an age for actual service the aim is to develop the endurance and physical power of the animal . These qualities depend upon the muscular fiber , sinews and bone ; and these , in turn , are dependent upon the quality of food . After the animal has grown to maturity , the malm questi...
The Supply of Corn on Hand . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 25 March 1898
The Supply of Corn on Hand . The other day we asked a corn dealer who is located In one of the great corn growing sections of western Iowa what was the amount on hand of the three crops of 1895 , 1896 , and 1897 , in that section . He stated that even in that great corn growing section the farmers in 1896 made some drafts on the corn held over from 1895 , and still further drafts this year . The corn of 1897 was of first-class quality and perfectly dry and could be shipped to any part of the world , and that practically all of the corn that would remain before another crop would be a remnant of the crop of 1895 , which was also of first-class quality , and purchased at such a high price that it could not be unloaded at a profit unless there was a still further advance in the price of corn in the great markets . This corresponds with the view we have held all winter . That there would be no great amount of the crop of 1896 and 1897 on hands ; in fact , we believe that the supply of c...
Waterloo Stone Fuller . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 25 March 1898
Waterloo Stone Fuller . We present herewith to our readers an entirely new departure ln the line of a farm machine , built expressly for removing boulders and stones from tletds . meadows and pastures . Thousanos of acres of land are almost useless for cultl \ atlon on account of stone and boulder * ,, which heretofote could only be removed by blasting , which expense has always or generally has been far in excess of the value of the land . Also many Iields now under culti- \ atlon are very disagreeable to work on account of the numerous stones and boulders scattered throughout the field . There has long been a demand for a machine that would do this class ot work , and to meet this demand the manufacturers . Kelly &amp; Taneyhtli , of -Waterloo . Iowa . ha \ e constructed a machine for the removing of boulders from iields at a very small cost . With this machine from twenty to hfty stone can be moi-ed in a day . The machine is intended for removing stone weighing from 1 , 0...
