The Season . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 1 April 1898

The Season . So far the season of 1898 has been a most favorable one for farmers in the central states of the West The winter , to begin with , has been favorable for the last year s clover , timothy , and winter wheat , all of which appear to be in fine condition . There has been ample opportunity for sowing spring wheat during the month of March with the soil in tirst-class condition . Any man who has been willing to take a little time or trouble could put In spring wheat under ideal conditions , and something very Injurious , such as chinch bugs , or blight of heavy storms about filling time , must occur if we do not have an exceptionally fine crop of wheat this year . We do not regard the Crop , however , as by any means sure , for , as an old farmer once said to us , it is the Lord that makes the wheat crop ; you . know nothing about it from the time It leaves your hand until it is put In the sack . Farmers , therefore , must not contract obligations with the certainty that the...

How to Tie Wool . As quite a number of the readers of Wallaces Farmer will have sheep to shear this year for the first time , they will probably be interested in methods of tying the fleece . We have asked Prof . J . J . Edgerton , of the Agricultural College , to write an article on this subject , which he has kindly done , supplementing it with an illustration of a box for tying the fleece .

What Kind of Cows . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 1 April 1898

What Kind of Cows . Mr . F . A . Minor , of Franklin County , Nebraska , writes that he can not see how he could farm without Wallaces Farmer , and asks us what kind of cows he should select for both milk and beef , as he wishes to get about twenty to milk for a cream separator and wishes to get as good as possible for milk and have good calves for the feed lot It would be hard to ask a more timely and important question , and It would be quite easy to ask a number that could be more easily answered . It la not easy even in an old settled country where farmers have been producing the granger s cow for years to buy twenty good cows of the kind described , the reason being that a good many dairymen have been working for the special purpose cow where steer calves were not a thing desired , and no attention paid to beef production . Another large class have been looking wholly to beef production and paying no attention whatever to dairy capacity . Ten years ago or more we called the att...

Scours in Calves or Calf Cholera . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 1 April 1898

Scours in Calves or Calf Cholera . From all parts of the United States comes the complaint of calves dying soon after birth of a disease that is some times called scours , some times black scours , and some times calf cholera . We think there are fewer complaints in Iowa than In the Eastern states , and fewer in those sections of Iowa that are not given over to dairying than in the dairy sections . It is a serious thing to the farmer who has kept a cow a year for the chance of a calf to lose the calf , and it is a serious thing for the dairy farmer who keeps the granger s cow and expects to have the calf as clear profit over and above the interest on the money , feed , and labor to raise the calf . Veterinarians do not as yet seem to have mastered this disease but no doubt will in time . To show how extensive the disease is , and also the variety of remedies used with more or less effect , we take from a single issue of Hoard s Dairyman , the following : One dairyman from Racine , W...

Corn for the Gulf . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 1 April 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 & Gulf road has alredy finished its line to Pattonsburg , Missouri , and there remains but a comparatively small section between Calnsville and Pattonsburg to be completed when Des Moines will have , with the Keokuk & Western , which will be the northern extension of the Pittsburg & 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 Une is making notwithstanding the opposition of allother lines . The passage of the pooling bill would of course rob the farmers of the...

Sick Sheep . 1 * 0 W-T , T . A * ffl « lUB-D-Bi Mr . S . E . Palmer , of Dallas County , Iowa , writes : I have a ewe that Is off feed and lies down most of the time , eats little or nothing , but always lies with her head up , will move around only when compelled to , will drink , and does Hot seem to suffer pain . What can be done for sheep in this condition ? Mr . J . B . Gowdy , of Dallas County , Iowa , writes : Will you please tell me what is the matter with my sheep ? One of them has a part of its womb , or something resembling it protruding . It Is not time for her to lamb yet for about two weeks . I have already lost one from a similar cause and on opening it found the womb inflamed . Tne above queries can not be answered to the satisfaction of the owners without an examination of the affected sheep . The one that is off feed may receive a laxative dose of Epsom salts , say three or four ounces , and if inclined to eat at all should be fed very sparingly . The other is prob...

Shipping Cattle—No . Six . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 1 April 1898

Shipping Cattle—No . Six . To WAU-toas r _____«¦ With the safe arrival of the cattle at their destination a large number oi shippers , including not only the young and inexperienced , but also those grown old In the business , consider that their work is ended , and the unloading is left for the employes of the stock yard . As the stock trains are usually timed to arrive in the morning , shippers are tired , and often hungry , when the yards are reached , and there is some excuse for taking the advice of the employes of the commission firm , to whom the cattle are consigned : Go and get breakfast , we will see to the unloading and yarding of the cattle . In addition to the employes of the stock yards company , the commission firms have men of their own , who watch the arrival of the trains for stock consigned to their firm , and they are always ready to assist in unloading . But the unloading of stock with these men is no novelty , and many of them are coarse , rough and careless , ...

Building up a Run-Down Farm . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 1 April 1898

Building up a Run-Down Farm . To W- ___ -CH _* F ______ - » Ten years ago this spring , we moved ed on a 180-acre farm in Preble county , Ohio . The farm is about half bottom ( Four Mile river runs through it ) , half upland or second bottom . It was naturally good land ( burr oak and sugar tree ) . For a number of years before we came into possession of it it had been rented for ? 700 . 00 each year , and I presume the tenant thought to pay such rent and have anything for himself he must raise lots of corn and wheat . Any way , the land had been farmed to corn and wheat continuously for years . The land had become so sick and tired of producing those two crops year after year that the wheat crop on the upland the year we took the farm only made eight bushels of very poor wheat per acre . We sowed big English clover on that wheat field , let it stand one year besides the year it was sown ; did not pasture or cut any of the hay . We went over it with table rake machine and clipped of...

Kafir Corn . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 1 April 1898

Kafir Corn . TO WALLACES - TABXHBI W . F . C , Bryant , Iowa , writes : I would like to plant some Kafir corn for fodder , and I would like to have some instructions . One man told me that I could sow it with the Gorham see ^ pr , and cut it with a binder the same as any other small grain . Now I would like to know how much seed It would require per acre , and if it should be put in very deep or not ? I have reason to believe that it makes one of the best fodder that grows , as we had a very small piece and we pulled it up by the roots and fed it to the colts late in the fall , and they ate it up clean close to the roots . Kafir corn is particularly adapted to a dry climate and semi-arid conditions . It has been grown extensively and with good results in sections of Kansas where there is not sufficient moisture to insure a corn crop . It is questionable , however , whether it has any particular advantage to recommend it in a state like Iowa , where the corn crop , or at least the fo...

Lameness in Colt . ¦ [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 1 April 1898

Lameness in Colt . ¦ _< WALLACES ff-JOTBI Mr . Andrew Petersen , of Clinton county , Iowa , writes as follows : Please tell me through your paper what can be the matter with ¦ my three-year-old colt He has been standing in a box stall tied up by the head , and all at once his fore foot commenced to swell around the hoof ; seemed as if he had caught his foot in some way and pulled it loose , but there is no place in the barn that he could have done so , as he is in a tight manger ¦ . He lies down and groans most of the time . -I have had a veterinary surgeon but he seems to be doing no good , so I ask your advice . Judging from the writers description , the colt has certainly injured his foot in some way . This may have occurred from pawing in the stall , striking the foot against the manger or any other hard substance , or from standing a long time in a stall having a hard floor . Whatever the cause of the trouble , the foot Is now acutely inflamed and should be treated a...

From Nebraska . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 1 April 1898

From Nebraska . To WALLACES * _* AB ____ * We are having fine spring weather in southwestern Nebraska , Farmers commenced sowing wheat February 28 th , and a large acreage is expected to be put in . Winter wheat rye , and alfalfa are starting . With an abundance of rain fall and snow in the early winter , the ground is in nice shape for seeding , and the prospects for good crops are flattering , indeed . With plenty of grain and roughness on hand , stock of all kinds are in prime condition . Hogs are healthy now , although a few cases of cholera was prevalent at Arapahoe several weeks ago . The Beatrice Creamery Company have separator stations in nearly every town ] in this vicinity . As they only receive milk on three days in the week as yet , the station at Arapahoe received 5 , 000 pounds last Monday . Farmers are taking a greater interest in dairying of late . Creameries are becoming advan-1 tagieous to them in many ways . This is fast becoming a stock-raising coun-1 try . It is...
