Crop Rotations [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 1 April 1898

Crop Rotations It is a little out of season to discuss crop rotations to any very great extent . Farmers have no time to plan now , and yet by referring to the matter we may he able to point out to them some of the mistakes which they are making in order that they may plan next winter to avoid them . A good many farmers think that they are having a proper rotation when they change from corn to oats or wheat , and from these to corn . . This reminds us of one of Hoard s stories of the two Jews who came from Montreal , and , being In financial trouble , called on the British consul . The clerk informed them that the consul could not see them until they changed their shirts , which were so filthy that they were not officially presentable . They went away , and came back in apparently the same condition , when the clerk said : I told you the consul would not see you until you changed your shirts . But , was the reply , we have changed them . Simon took mine and I took his . Oats and whe...

An Important" Change in the Road Law . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 1 April 1898

An Important Change in the Road Law . We desire to call the special attention of our readers to the Important change that is made by the new code in the law providing for the expenditure of the road tax of the state . Section 1548 . on the subject of how the road tax shall be expended , reads : The road supervisor shall cause all taxes collected by him to be expended for road purposes on or before the first day of November of that year , seventyfive per cent of which shall be expended before the fifteenth day of July , except the portion set apart for a general township fund , which shall be by him paid over to the township clerk from time to time as collected , and his receipt taken therefor . On this point , the supreme court , In the case of Wells vs . Stomback , has decided as follows : A road supervisor who fails to pay over the proportion of the road taxes collected by him , which has been by the trustees apportioned to the general fund , is liable therefor In an action on his...

The Damage Done by smut . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 1 April 1898

The Damage Done by smut . Every careful reader has noticed that each year he loses more or less oats by smut . Few , however , stop to esti-mate-the damage . It Is estimated by careful observers that the annual loss in New York Is about ten per cent , and the Department of Agriculture places It at from five to twelve per cent in the different localities of the United States . Smut is a parasitic plant , that is , a plant that feeds on another plant It Is produced from what is called a spore , which Is a microscopic body corresponding to the seed of the oats . These spores are blown by the wind , find a lodgment on the grain , are sown with it , and the same conditions that germinate the oats germinate the smut This smut spore sends into the plant * A * ien it is but a few days old , a minute tube which branches and grows up within the tissues of the oats plant , a plant within a plant . The farmer knows nothing about It until the oats get in the milk , when a microscope would show t...

Coverine for Blue Grass . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 1 April 1898

Coverine for Blue Grass . Mr . E E . Dell , of Lyon County , Iowa , asks If we would advise sowing blue grass with a drill and if it would be likely to cover lt too deeply . We would not . We would prefer sowing it If we used the drill , directly after . A covering with a brush or a light harrow would be still better . Blue grass requires comparatively little covering . One of the best stands we have ever seen was secured on a lot by simply covering it with blue grass fresh cut when the seed was ripe . These dropped off on to the ground and the shade of the straw secured a perfect stand in very short time .

Harrow After the Plow . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 1 April 1898

Harrow After the Plow . A good many thousand acres of corn last year yielded from five to ten bushels less than they should have done had the harrow closely followed the plow and pulverized the clods before they became hardened by the rapid evaporation from the heat of the sun . The ground Is working nicely so far this year , but a succession of rains may come between this and the first of May that win unao so far as the surface is concerned all of the pulverizing work of the frost and compel us to plow the stalk and stubble ground wet and give us clods without end . A corn field , large per cent of which is cloddy when planted , will In all probability yield a poor crop . Bear in mind that the plant can not utilize the soil that forms the hard clod , and if one-third of the soil is in this condition , the farmer is tiring to grow a crop on two-thirds instead of three-thirds . More than that , these clods seriously Interfere with the movement of the moisture and thus render an abnor...

The Number of Live Stock in the United States . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 1 April 1898

The Number of Live Stock in the United States . The farmers are very greatly interested in the future prices of all kinds of live stock . While these prices do not depend solely on the numbers in the United States , nor indeed , in any country , or all countries , nevertheless the numbers are a prominent factor in determining future prices . For live stock Is not like manufactured articles . It is only a question of a few months when the supply of manufactured articles will overtake the demand . Mr . Carnagle , for example , can turn out a thousand tons of steel rails a year or a million . It is only a question of raw material , working capital , labor , and plant . When , however , the live stock of the country sinks below the level , it can not be replaced at once or at will , and in some lines it is a matter of years . There has been a very marked decrease in the numbers of cattle , hogs , and sheep in the United States , the decrease in the numbers of cattle beginning In • 1890 ...

Fattening Horses for Sale . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 1 April 1898

Fattening Horses for Sale . The fact that within the last year or two every here and there over the West men have built large barns and gone into the business of fattening horses as they would steers , should set farmers to thinking . These men would not do it unless there were large prices in sight , and the fact that they continue to go to large expense In the way of buildings to increase their facilities shows that there is a large profit in this business . The market demands fat horses . The shipper wants them fat because the exporter or buyer for use at this season of the year wants them in that condition . At the beginning of the season s work the horse should carry plenty of flesh . He will have abundant chance to lose it before the year is out The simple question is whether the farmer himself who has gone to all the trouble of growing the horse should get out of it all there is in it To do so he must have it fat , and no man can fatten a horse as cheaply as the man who has g...

Bad Roads Tax . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 1 April 1898

Bad Roads Tax . There Is a great deal of disagreement among farmers as to the best methods of road management Some hold to the old road district supervisor system , believing that It can not he improved ; others believe that the road district should be not smaller than a township and the work done by contract or under direction of a supervisor appointed by the trustees , and the tax paid In cash ; while still others hold that county management is the thing . Good roads can be made on all these methods provided the right kind of man bosses the job , a man who knows how to move dirt economically , who understands what lt takes to make a good road , and who can get work out of the men , whether working out their road tax or hired by the day or by the month . The point we wish to emphasize Is that however they may disagree as to how they should pay their tax for good roads , they are all paying a bad road tax . This is a tax that does not pass through the hands of the treasurer or colle...

Alsike Clover . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 1 April 1898

Alsike Clover . While a farmer here and there tn the state appreciates the value of alsike clover on swales , sloughs , and lands subject to overflow , the great majority allow these lands to grow up in coarse , innutritlous grasses , an eyesore instead of a benefit to the farm . We have repeatedly called the attention of our readers to the fact that at a very slight expense an unsightly slough may be turned into a rich and profitable pasture by the combined use of alsike clover and a mowing machine . Alsike clover is intermediate in size between the white and tbe red or mammoth . It is not , as was supposed by the early botanists , a hybrid between these two , but an entirely different plant , a native , we believe , of Sweden , and hence adapted to the more northern latitudes and quite different from either in its habits of growth . Its merits are that it will endure a lower temperature than either of the others , and that it will thrive in lands entirely too wet for any other clo...

Moving the Farm South , [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 1 April 1898

Moving the Farm South , A good many of our readers complain of winter in the Northwest and long for a more temperate climate . They usually find in moving southward that that section has almost as many ills to the square mile as the more northern regions . In fact , the Almighty has apportioned the bitter and the sweet in the way of climate so evenly that there is but little choice . The wise . _ ang to do is to move the farm a hundred miles south , possibly two hundred , by planting out windbreaks and groves , thus securing the milder temperature during winter of the regions further south and the absence of mud during the winter time , which is one of the chief blessings of our latitude . It will cost but little money to move the climate of any farm to at least the extent of two degrees of latitude . A belt of timber two rods wide on the north and west of the buildings , including by all means the barns and cattle sheds , will do it , and the farmer who owns his own farm , or the l...

Rape-Culture . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 1 April 1898

Rape-Culture . We are receiving letters of inquiry from farmers in the latitude of southern Iowa as to the value and the best methods of growing rape . There seems to be , as is quite natural , a good deal of confusion in the minds of our correspondents as to the nature of this new plant The rape belongs to the same family as the cabbage , the turnip , the cauliflower , and the kale . It might be defined as a Swedish turnip that expends all its energy in the production of large and succulent leaves . It has no value whatever as a hay crop and its merit is that it provides a very large amount of highly nutritious and palatable food during a period of short pasture . It may be used for soiling purposes , that is for mowing and feeding it by hand to stock , but most farmers will get very tired of handling a crop of this kind , and therefore its use is practically limited to that of a summer and fall pasture for sheep , hogs , and cattle . It has chiefly been used , in both the old coun...

Crowing Mangels . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 1 April 1898

Crowing Mangels . Mr . F . B . Linn Writes as follows : I would like to ask some reader of WallacesFarmer who has had experience in raising beets as a crop for feed for cat tle and hogs which kind he would advise planting , the mangel-wurzel or the sugar beet How far apart should the rows be ? How close should they be planted in the row ? How much seed per acre is required ? About what is the average yield ? Do you think them a profitable crop to raise ? How much can one man tend ? Is it better to boil tnem tor hogs ? • I should also like to have some information in regard to feed cookers . Which kind do you regard the best , patent cookers or steamers ? Do you think , it profitable to cook feed for hogs ? ifor instructions as to the proper method of growing mangels see Professor Curtiss article on page 10 of last week s issue . We would prefer the mangel for stock purposes to sugar beets except on low-lying lands subject to an untimely frost in July , under which circumstances the ...

Clover Seed Midge . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 1 April 1898

Clover Seed Midge . Mr . Robert H . Todd , of Ida county , Iowa , wishes to know something about the clover seed midge and whether it does damage after the clover is hulled . The clover seed midge is the larva of a fly which lays its eggs in the common red clover just about the time the heads appear and before the bloom comes on them . It finds its way to the seed as it develops , bores into it , and matures about the time the seed should ripen , goes into the ground , passes through its intermediate stage , and comes out as a fly In time for the second crop of clover , maturing a second crop of midges which pass through the winter and come out flies again in the spring . It does not interfere with the mammoth clover because the first crop of flies is through laying before the mammoth blooms , and the mammoth is ripe before the second crop appears . It does not do any damage to clover after it is hulled , but the hulled clover when examined will frequently be found full of holes whi...
