To Buy Land or To Rent [Newspaper Article] — Berkshire World and Cornbelt Stockman — 1 February 1910
To Buy Land or To Rent During the last few years farmers taken as a whole have made money says a recent exchange . The tenant has shared with the landlord in this prosperity . Many tenants have laid up sufficient money to justify them in considering seriously whether they should continue to rent any longer , or whether they should buy a farm of their own . Tue ambition to own land is a most laudable one . Sure fortunes have been made by men who have made land investments in the past ; and besides , there is a profound satisfaction in having a home of your own . The change from tenant farming to land owning should not be made without due consideration . It seems to us that the most important question for the- tenant to ask himself is whether he has capital sufficient to work the land profitably , after making a down payment that will secure him against losing the farm eventually . To put all his money in land and leave himself without working capital is , to say the least , very unwi...
How Much to Feed Dairy Cattle [Newspaper Article] — Berkshire World and Cornbelt Stockman — 1 February 1910
How Much to Feed Dairy Cattle Professor Eckles , of the Dairy Department of the Missouri Agricultural College , in the course of a discussion on feeding dairy cows , laid down the following general rules : 1 . Feed all the roughness they will eat up clean at all times . 2 . Feed one pound of grain per day for each pound of butter-fat produced per week , or one pound of grain daily for each three pounds of milk . 3 . Feed all the cows will take without gaining in weight . The rule regarding the amount of grain to feed per day for each cow applies best when based upon the amount of butter-fat produced per week , as this makes it applicable to any breed . The second part of the rule , in regard to feeding one pound of grain for three pounds of milk , would not work out in all cases , since in a heavy-milking Holstein cow this gives a little too large a quantity of grain , and with a Jersey giving very rich milk it is a little low . It applies best to cows producing milk of about averag...

More Opinions About the Berkshire Outloo [Newspaper Article] — Berkshire World and Cornbelt Stockman — 1 February 1910
More Opinions About the Berkshire Outloo Indiana Farmers Have Bought More Berkshires in the Last Four Months Than They Ever Did Before . To the Berkshire World : —Your letter of recent date received , in regard to outlook for Berkshires locally . Local conditions are state-wide when the great demand for Berkshires is considered . But , to begin at the beginning , back when the panic was at its worst and the weather man in sympathy cut the crops in half , the hog breeders of Indiana would beg with tears in- their eyes for the farmer to buy even at the price that would mean a loss . About that time some two or three of us happened to meet , talked it over , and agreed to keep our good ones for awhile at least , if they could not be sold at a decent price , believing that conditions would surely change . We kept them , grew the pigs , bred for more—as many as we could possibly handle—fitted some good ones this past season and went to the fairs . Here begins a different story . About fa...

Outlook Bright Because of High Price of Pork . [Newspaper Article] — Berkshire World and Cornbelt Stockman — 1 February 1910
Outlook Bright Because of High Price of Pork . To The Berkshire world : In regard to the outlook for Berkshires in the future , I think it is as good as at any time in the past . It cannot help but be good so long as the price of pork is as high as at the present time . There is a big shortage of hogs throughout the country also . My herd is in splendid shape , will have about fifteen litters to come in March by Charmer s Premier 2 d and Starlight Premier and more later on . There are not a great many Berkshires in this part of the country . However , there are more farmers raising them than in the past . Wishing you success , I am , Yours respectfully , Bert A . Giltner , Agency , Iowa .
News From Kansas [Newspaper Article] — Berkshire World and Cornbelt Stockman — 1 February 1910
News From Kansas To The Berkshire World : In regard to Berkshire forecasts for the New Year . I am not a prophet , nor the son of a prophet , but I believe that I am a good guesser when I say that the Berkshire hog will be seen on more farms than ever before . He goes to the fat stock shows and competes with everything in the hog line , and in most cases wins his breed additional laurels . In my eleven years experience with the breed , I have never seen the breeders prospects brighter . The farmer has begun to be dissatisfied unless he has the best of everything , and that is where the Berkshire shines and fills the bill . This is a year of poor corn crops generally , but the farmers are figuring that it takes no more to feed a good hog than it does a scrub , and when he says a good hog he means a BERKSHIRE and that is why he buys him . C . G . NASH , Eskbridge , Ark . If there is a corn crop this year , which I guess there will be , all the fellows who are cutting down their number...
T . J . JACKSON , Little Rock , Ark . Jackson Stock Farm . [Newspaper Article] — Berkshire World and Cornbelt Stockman — 1 February 1910
T . J . JACKSON , Little Rock , Ark . Jackson Stock Farm . Little Rock , Ark . The Berkshire World , Springfield , 111 . Gentlemen : —Answering your recent inquiry as to the present outlook for Berkshires in my locality , I would say that it is very good , in fact the very best it has ever been and mail orders are coming in so fast that I can scarcely supply the demand , notwithstanding I have some forty excellent brood sows with two herd boars steadily at work . My herd is looking fine indeed , comprising some of the best sows to be found in the breed , in which there is Lord Premiers Rival , Masterpiece , Baron Duke 50 th and Premier Longfellow s blood almost exclusively . My two great herd boars are doing excellent service and I am sending out a great sprinkling of young pigs this Winter , and if the present demand keeps up awhile longer our State will come abreast of some of our neighboring States in the breeding of pure bred hogs . I note you are waging a relentless war against...
Conditions in Indiana [Newspaper Article] — Berkshire World and Cornbelt Stockman — 1 February 1910
Conditions in Indiana Mr . E . J . Barker , Thorntown , Indiana , sends us the following article relative to the conditions existing in Indiana : Never in the memory of the writer has the demand for good stock in our state been so great as at the present time . This is true in all lines of stock breeding , from the horse , down to poultry . There is a general inclination among all our farmers for better things . No one scarcely is now content with scrub hogs or chickens . He not only wants pure bred stock , but he is fast getting to the point where he wants good pure breeds . Many farmers are buying a team of registered mares , those who do not already have some registered beef cattle , are adding a few registered Jerseys instead . As we all know ., there is a shortage of hogs , especially brood sows . The demand on the breeder of all breeds is far in excess of the supply . Berkshires are rapidly gaining in popularity among Indiana farmers . The breeders of our state , I think , wit...
